John C. Maxwell once said, “There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. ‘Good pride’ represents our dignity and self-respect. ‘Bad pride’ is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.” Paul Bear Bryant gave it to us like this, “Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself.” Then W. Edwards Deming put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “Quality is pride of workmanship.”
Well playas…there was no quality, pride or workmanship in what the Indiana Pacers did on Friday night bruh. They went out to LA, ran up in the Staples Center and simply threw up on the floor. They allowed the dull Lakers to walk out of the joint with some confidence in themselves by allowin’ them to actually win a darn game 108-96!
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The Lakers are one of the worse teams in the league bruh! They’re 25th out of 30 teams in the NBA in terms of wins vs. losses!! Even with the dull win on Friday they’re just 16-31!! Comin’ in to this game they had only only won 5 times in the last 26 games bruh! You can’t lose to these cats!!
That’s like gettin’ your lunch money takin’ from the neighborhood nerd and actin’ like it didn’t happen. C’mon bruh!
It was a 2-point Indiana lead at the break 53-51. So boyz figured that they would come out to start the second half with some fire and go to work on the hapless Lakers right? Wrong!! They must have all taken some dull Benadryl or eaten some of Big Momma sweet potato pie because they looked a hot mess afterwards. The Lakers jumped out of the birthday cake butt naked foamin’ at the mouth and outscored them 35-22 in the third quarter. Sure they played a tight fourth quarter only bein’ outscored 22-21 but it was too late playa. The numbers are the numbers!
Either you stop takin’ Benadryl, tell Big Momma that you can’t eat at half time or just flat out play some ball in spite of the foolishness sittin’ in front of you. You sure can’t let duns like Lou Williams come off of the bench and eat your darn lunch for 27 points either.
The Pacers played well on offense however. They shot 42 percent from the field and 41 percent from behind the arc with 24 assists! But they had glaucoma from the free throw line shootin’ only 72 percent.
Paul George was drivin’ the blue and gold Pacer with the busted headlight and no rearview mirrors. He finished the night with 21 points. Big Al Jefferson came out of the bushes with 20 points and 6 rebounds. Myles Turner rode shotgun with 15 points as Jeff Teague tried to manage things from the back seat with 11 points and 7 assists.
A dull third quarter allowed some duns that couldn’t remember how to win an opportunity to taste Big Momma’s macaroni and cheese. Uncivilized my brother! Simply uncivilized!
Like I always say, you’ve got to win the games you’re supposed to win. There are too many joints that come up on the schedule that could go either way. Don’t give your lunch money to the dun that’s used to givin’ his away. I’m just sayin’ and 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.
