Mortimer Adler, the famous philosopher, once said, “Love can be unselfish, in the sense of being benevolent and generous, without being selfless.” Buddha broke it down like this, “To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.” Then LeBron James jumped out of the birthday cake butt naked foamin’ at the mouth spittin’, “I’ve always been an unselfish guy, and that’s the only way I know how to play on the court and I try to play to the maximum of my ability – not only for myself but for my teammates.”
Well playas…bein’ an unselfish guy on Wednesday night down the stretch cost the Cavs a win and any chance of pullin’ a 2016 comeback! Well nobody thought that they were even capable of doin’ this year anyway. The KD factor was too much for a boy.
However, with 52 seconds left, up by two 113-111, with the rock in his hands, drivin’ to the rack the dun made the right basketball play but the wrong move. He saw a wide open Kyle Korver in the corner and passed him the ball. The dun missed the open three and it went the other way. Kevin Durant knocks down the three pointer to go up 114-113 with 45 seconds to go and it was free throws and lollipops from that point on.
What LeBron prides himself on became his GREATEST flaw in one of his biggest games at one of his biggest moments.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Sometimes you gotta be selfish!! You can’t trust a boy to do what you can do even if it makes sense. The Cavs were up two points with 52 seconds left! Take the rock to the rack and either make the bucket, draw the foul or both. Then it’s free throws and lollipops goin’ the other way.
However, by trustin’ a dun that hasn’t shown up in Games 1 or 2 is asinine!! I completely get what he was thinkin’ and the possibility of the dun knockin’ down the three with his ability to knock down threes. However, don’t trust anybody down the stretch but yourself. It’s like growin’ up in the hood and then movin’ to the suburbs.
Yeah, I know that it looks safe and nobody ever locks their doors or have flood lights shinnin’ on their property but I’m not trustin’ anybody around this piece. If I’m goin’ to lose it’ll be because a boy broke into my joint and the alarm didn’t work while I was 1000 miles from the crib with a dead cell phone.
LeBron can get buckets any kind of way he wants when he wants and with 52 seconds left he trusted somebody else to take the shot? That’s the foolishness that drives boyz crazy about him. He’s the most talented basketball player we’ve EVER seen but he’s not selfish when he needs to be.
Michael Jordan once said, “To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don’t isolate.”
Now he only believes the first sentence of that but I completely agree with him about bein’ selfish when it comes down to it bruh.
LeBron put up 39 points, 11 rebounds and threw 9 dimes and he passed the ball to a dun that had only scored 8 points on 3 of 7 shootin’ from the field and he was 2 of 6 from behind the arc. If you’re bettin’ you don’t bet on those numbers especially when you’ve got the rock in your hands goin’ to the rack. If nothin’ else you draw the foul and keep it movin’.
The Cavs played as well as they could possibly have played and came up short because that Philistine didn’t trust himself with the ball in his hands or better yet wanted to prove to boyz that he wasn’t selfish. Shaken my darn head and that’s the edited version. One of my homeboyz told me a long time ago that LeBron was from the hood but he ain’t hood. He’s not like us bruh!
He actually cares about duns likin’ him. Gettin’ everybody involved is great for playin’ the game the right way but it’s not good for winnin’ tight games down the stretch. If you’re goin’ to lose you lose with the ball in your hands not with some dun comin’ off of the bench because you wanted to make the right basketball play. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spittin’: 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!”
