Alexander The Great once, “I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.” Well playas…that’s exactly what the Cavs have been for the past three seasons bruh! An army of sheep led by a lion!! The key is bruh, they’re bein’ led!!! LeBron James keeps puttin’ these boyz on his back and carryin’ them when they need to be carried.
Leadership in any organization is the key to success! If no one is leadin’ the group they fail miserably.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The Cavs were gettin’ the brakes beaten off of them in the first half of Game 3 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, so much so, that they were down 25 points at the break. LeBron took over when duns like Kyrie and Kevin Love never found their way out of a paper bag and literally were benched in the fourth quarter.
Problem? No Problem! LeBron just put boyz on his back and finished with 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists. The Cavs went to work on the Pacers in the third quarter blastin’ them 35-17 out of the break and goin’ on to win the joint 119-114.
Now everybody and their baby’s momma around this piece in Naptown will tell you that PG got busy because he finished the night with 36 points, 15 rebounds and 9 assists and on paper that looks like Marshawn Lynch “Beast Mode!” However, the dun didn’t score a single point in the third quarter bruh!!! It doesn’t matter that he scored like 14 points in the fourth quarter playboy! His leadership was tested in quarter number 3.
Y’all know the drill in the NBA playoffs. If the Pacers had simply traded baskets with Cleveland for the first 6 or 7 minutes comin’ out of the break. The Cavs would have packed it in, sent the clean up crew in and lived to fight another day.
They were already up 2-0! They weren’t about to fight and claw to get back into a joint that was a wrap in three quarters. In the NBA they just do the math and say, “We’re up 2-0, all we’ve gotta do is win one of these joints on the road and this ain’t the one. We’ll come back for Game 4 get a win and then finish these duns off at the crib.” It’s simple math!!
So the fact that Paul George didn’t score a single point in the third quarter knowin’ that in about 6 minutes he could have called off the dogs tells you that he’s not the leader everybody wants him to be.
C’mon playa!! Not a single point when LeBron is bringin’ the heat to get back into the joint? I’m not sayin’ that he had to out play King James. I’m just sayin’ that he needed to be the dun tradin’ baskets with him for 6 minutes or so. Once Cleveland figured out there was no fight in Paul George in quarter number 3 they kept on fightin’ and got back into a game they they would have been willin’ to concede.
When a boy isn’t willin to knock a cat out when he’s got a dun on the ropes bleedin’ from the mouth it’s an indictment on his ability to lead. Stop me 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!”
