Sigmund Freud once said, “The ego is not master in its own house.” Marina Abramovic the well-known performance artist, gave it to us like this, “Your ego can become an obstacle to your work. If you start believing in your greatness, it is the death of your creativity.” Then Muhammed Iqbal, the famous poet, put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “The ultimate aim of the ego is not to see something, but to be something.”
Well playboy…Kyrie Irving’s ego has jumped out of the birthday cake butt naked foamin’ at the mouth tryin’ to be something that he clearly isn’t! The franchise player!! Over the weekend the news broke that ole boy has demanded a trade out of Cleveland. I’ve already written several Hot Joints on this topic entitled “Hustlin’ Backwards” and “No Pressure” talkin’ about this foolishness from a basketball perspective.
However, now that the smoke has cleared and duns are startin’ to talk about this foolishness openly, we clearly see that it’s all about Kyrie wantin’ to be the man instead of the man sittin’ NEXT to the man like I said over the weekend. Basketball doesn’t have jack to do with it. Accordin’ to my mans and nem over at ESPN, Ramona Shelburne, Dave McMenamin and Brian Windhorst, ole boy is on some “I want what he got” type foolishness!!!
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Word is, Kyrie’s upset that LeBron’s homeboy, Randy Mims, is on staff with the Cavs and travels with the team everywhere. But Kyrie’s boyz can’t to do that.
Then he sees his friends Damian Lillard and John Wall gettin’ the franchise player treatment and he wants it.
This dun is willin’ to jump off of a team that’s darn near locked to go to the Finals next year because his ego told him that he should be the franchise player. Wheredeydodatat?
This is what it’s come to with this cat? Really? Now like I said in the other Hot Joints, we’ve already seen Kyrie be the focal point on a team and they were one of the worse teams in the league. That’s why thy ended up with Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins!!! Did y’all sleep on that?
Kyrie’s not a franchise player bruh!! He’s a great role player that needs a dun to take the pressure off of him. Do you really think that he’d be doin’ half the things he’s doin’ without LeBron? C’mon bruh! We’ve seen him already when the team was his. They were the worse team in the freakin’ league!!!
Ego’s have been destroyin’ boyz for centuries! Will somebody go get Dame Dash to talk this boy off of the roof? PLEASE? He thought he could survive without Jay-Z and found out real quick that he couldn’t! Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
The caption under the photo isn’t real but its real talk!
