Marcus Buckingham, the British author, once said, “Many of us feel stress and get overwhelmed not because we’re taking on too much, but because we’re taking on too little of what really strengthens us.” Og Mandino, the author of the “Greatest Salesman in the World,” broke it down like this, “Sound character provides the power with which a person may ride the emergencies of life instead of being overwhelmed by them. Failure is… the highway to success.” Then Phoebe Snow, the famous singer, put it where the goats could get it when she spit, “Sometimes when you’re overwhelmed by a situation – when you’re in the darkest of darkness – that’s when your priorities are reordered.”
Well playas…the Indiana Pacers must have fallen into a dark hole in Charlotte on Monday night without a flashlight bruh. Talk about priorities needin’ to be reordered! How bout the defense? The Hornets ran over the Pacers 122-100 like a boyz drivin’ a Mac truck down hill with no brakes on banana peels.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! From the word go, Charlotte jumped all over Nate’s boyz and stripped them of all of the new school clothes Big Momma bought. They put up 43 points on a boy in the first quarter alone!!! Wheredeydodatat? A 43 point first quarter? By halftime the Pacers were down 20 points and had given up 75!!!
After an impressive performance this past Saturday night at home against the Bulls. Boyz thought that they had turned the corner. Like they had begun to figure out who they were defensively and had the confidence to play well on the road. Instead they’re 0-4 on the road so far this season which is dull in every sense of the word.
Kemba Walker led the Hornets by puttin’ that thang on ‘um scorin’ 24 points and droppin’ 10 dimes off at Big Momma’s house for a slice of sweet potato pie.
Charlotte scored 35 points off of 18 Indiana turnovers. You can’t win games turnin’ the ball over like that bruh. I’m just sayin’!
C.J. Miles came off of the bench to lead the Pacers with 23 points while Big Al Jefferson put 12 in the kitty off of the bench too. What I wanna know is where was the rest of the freakin’ team? The Pacers starters pulled a “Skittles and Lemonheads” on a boy and didn’t even get out of the ride. Myles Turner had 12 points, Paul George 10, Jeff Teague 9, Monta Ellis 7 and Thaddeus Young didn’t even bother to put his hands on or his eyes in at all. That dun took 4 shots and missed all 4 of them in 16 minutes.
Well the good thing is, they’ll be back at the crib on Wednesday against the dull 76ers where they are 3-0 this season. Hopefully they’ll play with more confidence and stop me when I start lyin’!
