As crazy as LaVar Ball sounds and the 99.9999 percent of foolishness that comes out of his mouth makes absolutely no sense. He has no business bein’ heard by the rest of the world. I just wrote a crazy Hot Joint yesterday entitled “It’s NAUSEATIN'” that said that ESPN needs to stop puttin’ a microphone in his face. He talks just to hear himself talk and it’s ridiculous.
However, on Sunday before the Mavs played the Knicks. Rick Carlisle went off about LaVar’s comments about Luke Walton pretty much losin’ his team and boyz not wantin’ to play for him. Where the dun went wrong was sayin’ that ESPN shouldn’t have published his comments and that the article itself was a disgrace.
In his capacity not only as a head coach in the NBA but in his capacity as the President of the NBA Coaches Association he basically tried to punk ESPN as a journalistic organization into only printing’ what he would approve of or the NBA Coaches Association would be happy with.
Ole boy says that ESPN is a partner of the league and that the coaches grant access to the network and interviews because of that partnership. He goes on to say,“In exchange for that, they should back up the coaches. Printing an article where the father of an NBA player has an opinion that is printed as anything like legitimate erodes trust. It erodes the trust that we’ve built with ESPN, and our coaches are upset because Luke Walton does not deserve that.”
So in other words, he’s tryin’ to tell us that because ESPN is a partner of the NBA that they can’t say or print anything negative about the coaches in this league. That’s what he said bruh whether you heard him or not.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Journalists shouldn’t be runnin’ up to LaVar lookin’ for foolishness to write about because he’s out of control and only wants to hear himself talk. However, if they do decide to holler at him and he gives them something that they decide to publish Rick Carlisle can’t tell them that they can’t.
He sure as heck can’t tell them that if they do he won’t give them access to his team. Why? Because he doesn’t have that type of power!!! A) It’s called freedom of the press!! A journalist can print what he wants as long as he didn’t just make up the quotes. LaVar Ball actually said that foolishness whether it was true or not is irrelevant. LaVar said it. So the journalist isn’t lyin’ or makin’ up information.
The writer spoke with a complete moron and quoted him. There’s no law against that. If the journalist had made up the story then we’d have a problem.
Secondly, coaches don’t dictate whether journalists get access to teams and players the NBA does. The fact that the NBA is on ESPN, TNT, ABC, and Big Momma’s Cable Outlet in the projects bootlegged for everybody to see means that money is bein’ generated by the media that eventually filtered down to players and coaches. Okay, maybe not the bootlegged cable but I was on a roll.
The fact that it’s on every website and television in the world coverin’ basketball and all of the revenue generated as a result of the marketin’ and promotion of this sport is the reason why he and all of this homeboys make the type of bread they make.
Don’t get so cocky Rick that you forget that its the media’s promotion of this foolishness that allows you to be fiithy rich. Oh…ole Rick forgot when the NBA Finals were on tape delay in the early 1980’s. He forgot there was a time when makin’ a million dollars a year was big money. Now boyz are gettin’ $20, $30, $40 million a year to play this game.
After duns like LeBron decided to take his talents to South Beach which sent TV revenues through the roof, boyz are gettin’ so much bread in the NBA right now it’s ridiculous. It’s called the media that’s promotin’ this game and that goes for print media as well Rick.
So slow ya roll tryin’ to tell boyz what they can and cannot publish because you happen not to like what some clown said about one of your own. That’s a slippery slope you’re slidin’ down and you really don’t want to go there. 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.
2) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.
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!”
