Winston Churchill once said, “The price of greatness is responsibility.” William Shakespeare broke it down like this, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” Bob Marley poured out a lil’ liquor for all the dead homies when he spit, “The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.”
Well playas…if that’s the case then sign that Philistine up because he’s had a positive affect on his teammates every year he’s played in the league. On Thursday night he led the Cleveland Cavaliers past the Boston Celtics 135-102 to earn a spot in their third straight Finals since returnin’ home. This will be his seventh straight finals bruh! No one has done that since Bill Russell went to eight straight from 1959-66. That’s NUTS!!!
Ole boy took over the joint from the word go in Game 5 finishin’ with 35 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists which is crazy in and of itself, not to mention that he passed the great Michael Jordan in all-time playoff points. When he scored his 29th point on a 3-pointer with 2:40 left in the third quarter it officially gave him 5,989 points to pass Jordan’s 5,987.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! All of the Jordan diehards that refuse to give this man his props for bein’ great are sittin’ in a cold room butt naked foamin’ at the mouth that anyone would have the audacity to pass Jordan on any scorin’ list. So for the next ten days they’ll tell you that it took LeBron more games to do it so it doesn’t mean anything.
Well playas…it actually does! To become the all-time leadin’ anything is a big deal whether they’re passin’ your hero or not. There are several factors that duns look right over! First of all, Mike was a scorer by nature! He was an assassin. So his job was to score points offensively over everything else and that’s what he did. So it only makes sense that it only took him 179 games to record 5,987 points. That’s what he did bruh, score points!!
LeBron’s a COMPLETE player that does everything offensively. He scores, rebounds and assists and in no particular order. He plays the complete game and always makes the right basketball play. How do I know that? Because the numbers dictate the argument. It took him 211 games to pass Mike because he only averaged 28.2 points per game vs. Mike’s 33.4 points per game in the playoffs. Doin’ basic math tells you that it’s gonna take longer to score the same amount of points if you’re puttin’ up 5 points less per game. It’s like drivin’ to Atlanta goin’ 85 mph vs a dun goin’ 80 mph. The cat drivin’ faster is goin’ to get there quicker bruh!! It only makes sense.
But which one is more skilled. The dun that’s only drivin’ 85mph or the dun that drivin’ 80 mph cleanin’ the bugs off of the window, feedin’ the toddler in the back seat and changin’ the infant’s diaper? C’mon bruh wake up!! Here’s what boyz are missin’ bruh! It doesn’t matter that he played in more games! He passed the dun takin’ 118 less shots!!! Who cares how many games he played! He took 118 less shots!!! Do the math!!! The numbers don’t lie!
LeBron’s shootin’ percentage in the playoffs is darn near identical to Jordan’s!! Mike shot 48.7 percent from the field and 33.2 percent from behind the arc. LeBron shoots that thang at 48.2 percent from the field and 33.7 from three. Mike just shot the ball more! Why? Because that’s what his primary job was. TO SCORE POINTS!!
Boyz are actin’ like LeBron was standin’ around with his hands in his pockets doin’ nothin’ else. If you’d stop hatin’ for five minutes and pull the curtain back you’d see that the Philistine is doin’ EVERYTHING in the playoffs. He’s not just scorin’ points. He’s ranked seventh in rebounds, third in assists and second in steals!! THOSE ARE PLAYOFF NUMBERS bruh!! That’s means that he’s playin’ the COMPLETE game!!
Who knows how many games it would have taken him if his ONLY focus was on scorin’? However, it’s not! And here’s the foolishness that all of the diehard Jordan fans are skippin’ over this mornin’! That Philistine is only 32 years old!!!! By the time he decides to put this foolishness down there won’t be a record standin’ that he doesn’t own. He’s 32 years old bruh!!! Stop with this foolishness!!
All day long you’re goin’ to hear duns that are wearin’ Jordan’s and the tagless Hanes Underwear that just finished watchin’ “Space Jam” and “Come Fly With Me” tell you that it took LeBron longer (211 games) vs Jordan (179 games). That’s goin’ to be their claim to hold Jordan up forever. Why? Because they won’t do the simple math like I mentioned earlier in the joint. Here’s something else that boyz aren’t thinkin’ about either. LeBron accomplished it in 14 years as opposed to Mike doin’ it in 15 years because he played in more playoff games. He’s been to eight Finals. That means that he played in more playoff games. Mike for the first three years couldn’t get out of the first round!! Stop it!! And LeBron was doin’ more on the floor; points, rebounds and assists as evidenced by the numbers I just gave you.
But ask them the most basic of questions. “How old was Mike when he scored his last playoff point to get to the 5,987? The answer is 35 bruh!!! LeBron is 32!!! That means that the dun is still playin’ and his numbers are goin’ to keep risin’ for the next 4 or 5 years. Jordan won’t even be visible in the rear view mirror by the time this dun gets through. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
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!”
