How to REALLY know when you’re a bonafide LeBron HATER! “Plain & Simple”

Albert Einstein once said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Marcus Aurelius, the ancient Roman Emperor, gave it to us like this, “Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” Then Steve Jobs broke it down so that it would forever be broken when he spit, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

Well playas…99.9999 percent of duns walkin’ the face of this earth can’t think for themselves. It doesn’t matter what subject you’re talkin’ about there will be people deep in the conversation that think they know what their talkin’ about without a thread of knowledge of what’s really goin’ on. And the sad part about it is that the other duns talkin’ to him don’t know either. So more often than not you’ve got fools talkin’ to fools. 

When LeBron decided to leave Cleveland back in 2010 after playin’ there for 7 years without a stitch of help from the front office in getting’ him players to make the TEAM better. After watchin’ them fire his head coach and then two weeks later seein’ his general manager quit ole boy bein’ an unrestricted free agent decided that it it made good sense to dip. ESPN and the ENTIRE sports media industry set up the “Decision” as a national television event for an ENTIRE year by constantly talkin’ about it. These was no way around the “Decision” and they knew it. That’s why they produced the freakin’ event. Then turned on LeBron like it was all on him and 99.9999 percent of the fools watchin’ it fell for the Oaky Doke. Why? Because NOBODY thinks.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I could give two dead flies smashed about LeBron bruh! My favorite player of all time is Kevin Garnett!! Why? Because I’m drawn to people with unbelievable passion for what they do. KG would play a Tuesday night in February like it was Game 7 of the Finals! That’s why I’ve got so much respect for him. 

However, I started defendin’ LeBron with more than 84 Hot Joints over the years because people constantly sound ignorant hatin’ on this cat without havin’ facts to back up what they’re sayin’. I’m a thinker by nature bruh that happens to be a sports fan. So when a boy jumps out of the birthday cake and says something ignorant. I’ve got to address it with facts because I believe that all opinion should be grounded in FACTS!! You can’t draw an opinion without the facts because otherwise you’re just talkin’ and soundin’ like a fool. 

For example, not 24 hours after LeBron led the Cavs to their first NBA title I saw boyz sayin’ ignorant stuff like “No disrespect to LeBron but he doesn’t win the title without Kyrie!” And what’s so crazy is that once somebody says it then everybody else starts repeatin’ this foolishness like they’ve never watched the NBA before. 

No disrespect to anybody that’s EVER won an NBA title but without their counterpart NOBODY would win the title! IT’S A TEAM SPORT BRUH! You can’t win an NBA championship without another superstar! Since you cats don’t wanna think on your own let me do it for you! 

The Big O couldn’t win without Kareem in Milwaukee playboy! Did you forget that Magic had both Kareem and James Worthy! Larry Bird didn’t just show up butt naked with some tube socks on by himself in Boston! He had Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish. Oh and did I forget to mention Dennis Johnson!!! Zeke wasn’t killin’ boyz in Detroit by himself! He had Bill Lambeer, Dennis Rodman and Rick MaHorn!! C’mon bruh where YOU from? 

David Robinson was just the Admiral without Tim Duncan. He wasn’t a champion. Then Tim needed boyz like Tony Parker, Manu Ginobli and Kawhi Leonard to get it done!! As dominant as Shaq was in Orlando he didn’t win until he got with Kobe and vice versa! Then Kobe was screamin’ to be traded after he ran Shaq out of town and could no longer win until he got Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom! D. Wade was ringless until Shaq went to South Beach! C’mon bruh you’ve been watchin’ this foolishness for way too long to be ignorant of the facts. 

Dr. J needed Moses and as great of a player as KG was in Minnesota he couldn’t touch an NBA Finals or win a championship without Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. 

And all you cats wanna act like Jordan showed up like Jesse Owens,  Carl Lewis or somebody and won championships with a do-rag on, some Stacey Adams and a Members Only jacket on and won by his darn self! And that’s the edited version. Mike ALWAYS had Scottie! Let’s not forget that. He ALWAYS had a dead eye shooter in B.J. Armstrong, Craig Hodges, John Paxson or Steve Kerr! He had Horace Grant and then Dennis Rodman!  And PLEASE don’t EVER forget that he walked in with Phil EVERY time he got off of the bus in the Finals! 

So for you cats to act like LeBron is the ONLY person in the freakin’ HISTORY of the game that’s supposed to win all by his lonesome is crazy!! For this cat to put a team on his back the way he did in this Finals was remarkable and as close to by himself as they come. They were down 3-1 in the FINALS against the NBA’s greatest team in history from a statistical standpoint; 73-9 regular season record and shootin’ percentage. They had GREATEST shooter of all-time and this dun led the Finals in EVERY offensive category possible. Not only did he lead this Finals he led in all five categories in the HISTORY OF THE FINALS!!! 

This cat put up 208 points, grabbed 79 rebounds, threw 62 dimes, had 16 blocks and carjacked a boy for 18 steals! That wasn’t even physically possible before he did it bruh and you wanna scream that Kyrie should have won the MVP? You sound like a complete fool even suggestin’ such a thing.  And many of these so-called paid media-types where sayin’ it too. 

Don’t be such a hater that you can’t think straight. What kills me is that NOBODY ever wants to admit to bein’ a hater like folks with bein’ racist. People act like all of the racist people live on an island somewhere locked away and they come out from time to time and say or do something crazy. If you say something crazy or condone that foolishness you’re a racist! And if you’re talkin’ crazy about LeBron without any knowledge of what you’re talkin’ about then you’re a hater too!  Plain and Simple! Stop me when I start lyin’!
