“C’mon bruh! Y’all didn’t know?”
Mia Hamm once said, “True champions aren’t always the ones that win, but those with the most guts.” Dan Gable, the former Olympic wrestler, gave it to us like this, “Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.” Then Steve Prefontaine, the former Olympic middle and long distance runner, broke it down so that it would forever be broken when he spit, “I’m going to work so that it’s a pure guts race at the end, and if it is, I am the only one who can win it.”
Well playas…ole Kris Jenkins felt the same way on Monday night when he put on his big boy drawers, stepped up and drained the game winnin’ 3 at the buzzer to help his Villanova Wildcats win the National Championship. Talk about a boy havin’ some poise and when it went in he looked at the world like he expected that joint to fall! He gave a boy the look of, “Really? You didn’t doubt Ya Boy did you?”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I’m just glad that the national championship game lived up to the hype because the Final Four on Saturday was straight trash! Duns got out there and got the brakes beat off of them. They should have made Oklahoma walk home bare footed for the foolishness they showed up with. Wheredeydodatat?
However, North Carolina and Villanova showed up like two gangstas ridin’ deep in Big Body Chevys in the projects fightin’ over turf and the same chick. Every minute of the joint was worth watchin’! And when ole boy from UNC, Marcus Paige, knocked down the double-clutch junk of a three to tie the joint at 74 with 4.7 seconds left, you knew that it was Chris Brown up in that piece, “On and Poppin’!”
Kris Jenkins came down and put that joint up like Big Momma pullin’ a switch off of the tree in the mid-seventies. He took his best swing but it took a minute for you to feel it. Ice cold bruh! When they shot 71 percent in the national semifinal on Saturday against ole dull Oklahoma there was a feelin’ that they couldn’t be beaten on Monday night. Why? Because they had the “IT” factor.
For years boyz have been blastin’ the big homie Jay Wright because ever year he’d get his teams into the tournament only to wet the bed. This year he wasn’t playin’ and the gangsta pin strip suits he was rockin’ put boyz on notice. They said, “We ain’t playin’ with you boyz this year and only the REAL playas are walkin’ out alive.” Villanova walked out with the trophy and the girl on Monday night in a game that will live in NCAA Tournament lure.
For the next 50 years boyz will be showin’ Kris Jenkins knockin’ that three down like my boy Keith Smart in the hip hugger shorts from Indiana (IU schoolmate) or my real homeboy from G.I. Renaldo Thomas slappin’ the floor in disbelief when NC State knocked off Phi Slamma Jamma in 1983 to win it all and Jimmy V couldn’t find a boy to hug.
Yeah bruh, all Kris Jenkins has to do now is graduate and keep his nose clean and he’ll live good for the rest of his life. Trust me on that pimpin’! There isn’t a high end marketing or sales job in the state of Pennsylvania he can’t just walk in and get today bruh. He’s the cat that hit the 3 to win Villanova the NATIONAL TITLE in 2016! That’s his first name for the rest of his life and with a degree it’s potentially worth millions over a career.
I’ve seen duns that played at Indiana that couldn’t even hoop or win a national title get crazy jobs simply because they were on the darn team. This dun hit the game winner to win the school’s second national title in 31 years? Aw, he’s set for life playboy! Stay in Philly and he’s a king! Stop me when I start lyin’!
