Now that the dust has settled in the whole Kyrie foolishness boyz have started to ask the ultimate question. Will LeBron waive his no-trade clause in the mist of this chaos? Well playas…you’re talkin’ about the shrewdest businessman in the history of sports! That dun isn’t about to give up an ounce of leverage. Accordin’ to league sources or should I say my mans and nem, he ain’t goin’ nowhere until he wants to. He’s at least goin’ to sit tight until after the 2017-18 season and he’s got a $35.6 million player option in 2018-19 which he probably won’t take.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! This is LeBron that we’re talkin’ about bruh. He’s the most powerful person in the NBA! As a matter or fact, he’s the most powerful player in the history of the league. Why? Because he’s the reason why TV revenues have exploded since 2010. He’s the reason why all of these boyz are gettin’ these ridiculous contract extensions. He’s the most polarizin’ player to ever play. People either love him or hate him and most cats hate him. So they’re tunin’ in to see him lose at all costs. Well playas…that’s good for ratings and the NBA’s bottom line.
And I know that all of you young cats are hollerin’ that Jordan was more powerful. No he wasn’t! Not durin’ his playin’ career. Not with the league’s bottom line he wasn’t. Not at that time. Not with the way free agency was and not with TV revenues. Mike’s legend has grown through the roof since all of you young cats found something called YouTube and started watchin’ highlights and buyin’ the same shoes duns where wearin’ in the 90’s.
So a dun with that type of power in the league is NOT about to let a boy tell him where he’s goin’ to play and under what terms or conditions. He’s the reason that Kyrie was even empowered to ask for the trade in the first place. Ole Boy’z the reason why Kevin Durant could do what he did and not feel bad about it.
Boyz may not like it but it’s called power and leverage. He who has the most of it will always dictate policy. You’ve got to be crazy if you thought that LeBron was goin’ to waive his ability to be in control. What’s the point of becomin’ that powerful in the league if you’re only goin’ to give it up? Melo’s crazy for givin’ up his no-trade even if it’s only goin’ to cost him $8 million.
Phil is gone now, so he needs to be tellin’ the Knicks what he wants and not the other way around. There’s a reason why there’s only three cats in the league with a no-trade clause. Dirk, LeBron and Melo have the power based on their contracts to control what goes on with their futures. That’s the ultimate power move bruh. If you’ve got it, use it.
Naw playa, LeBron is goin’ to ride this foolishness out and then tell boyz what he’s goin’ to do next summer and not any time sooner than that. Stop 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!”
