Why boyz sound IGNORANT tellin’ LeBron NOT to chase the Ghost! “Numbers Don’t Lie”
Zig Ziglar once said, “What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” Jim Rohn give it to us like this, “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.” Then Tony Robbins put it where the goats could get it, “Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
Well playas…LeBron James has set a goal for himself that most of these fake media-types believe is impossible for him to accomplish. Ole boy said in a article that appeared in Sports Illustrated on Tuesday that he’s chasing’ the Ghost and that ghost played in Chicago. After boyz read his comments they went nuts on the hater tip tellin’ him that he’s pretty much wastin’ his time because Mike went 6-0 in the Finals. All kind of cats were talkin’ out of the sides of their necks. But B.J. Armstrong, who won 3 titles with Mike had something to say that made sense for about 30 seconds then he went off the “idiot I’m not makin’ sense rails” too.
This is what ole boy had to say, “If you want to be the best, get rid of the comparisons. Get rid of all the comparisons that are out there. That’s what Michael Jordan did. Jordan realized that in order to be the best, you had to get rid of all the comparisons.
He went on to say, “When you compared Jordan to somebody else, it made him more and more upset. That was with guys who played before him, guys he was playing against and guys in the future. He got upset every time [the media] got on TV and started comparing him to other people. When you compared who is the best 2-guard — Jerry West or Michael Jordan — he was upset. When you talked about who was the best player in the NBA, he was upset. When you talked about who had the most championships, he was upset.”
Aight bruh, let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Let’s start with the fake media-types that jumped out of the birthday cakes hollerin’ “Mike went 6-0 in the Finals. Look here bruh, winnin’ a championship is a TEAM award! If Mike was on the better TEAM with the better role players and BEST COACH of ALL-TIME it makes sense they won the series all 6 times. That doesn’t constitute him bein’ the GOAT!!!
If that’s the dumb logic you’re usin’ then Mike is the 1A and Scottie Pippen is the 1B-GOAT. Why? Because he went 6-0 in the Finals too. See how stupid that sounds bruh.
Playin’ the game of basketball embodies more than goin’ 6-0 in the Finals bruh. And we’ll break down what all of those other areas look like in just a minute.
B.J. started off great then he fell off into a hole that he couldn’t get out of sayin’ that Mike got upset when boyz compared him to other players even when it came to championships. Now I don’t know if B.J. can count but Bill Russell has 5 more championships than Mike! That’s basic math playa! Not this new math that boyz are talkin’ about. BASIC! like 1-2-3-4-5 more!! So with that bein’ said, the ignorant argument of winnin’ the most championships and goin’ 6-0 in the Finals goes out of the window.
In order to become the GOAT you’ve got to do everything on the floor better that EVERYBODY else or at least be near the top in every category that counts for anything in basketball. I’ve already had this discussion with you boyz in the crazy Hot Joint I wrote entitled, “Brand” a few months ago.
What’s blowin’ my mind is that cats are tellin’ LeBron NOT to even chase the ghost when he’s still playin’ the game of basketball! Why wouldn’t he chase the ghost because there’s nobody else in the history of basketball for him to chase?
Jordan is the All-Time leader in average points per game at 30.12!!! That’s the gold standard! You’re supposed to chase the gold standard and whether you reach it or not is irrelevant. LeBron needs to spit in his Lil’ Kim “All About the Benjamin’s” voice to these cats like Stephen A., “All that BS you kick playin’ hatin’ from the sideline, Get yo own ish, why you on mine!”
If LeBron aspires to be great shouldn’t he be chasin’ the dun that all of these fake media-types keep brain washin’ boyz to believe is the GOAT? Even if it’s not true. In order to be considered the GREATEST OF ALL-TIME you’ve got to be able to do EVERYTHING not just go 6-0 in the Finals on the BEST team with the BEST coach or score more points per game than anybody else. Whatever happened to total impact on the floor too: points, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals, shootin’ percentage etc, etc, etc.?
Mike isn’t No.1 in ANY other category bruh! Kareem is No.1 in total points and is ahead of Mike by more than 6,000 points. But LeBron is ranked 18th and he’s only 31 years old! So why wouldn’t he chase the ghost? At the rate that he’s goin’ now he’s goin’ to top both Jordan and Kareem by the time he retires. You sound like a fool tellin’ him NOT to chase the cats that are ahead of him.
When we look at field goal percentage DeAndre Jordan is at the top of the list with Jordan ranked 142nd while LeBron is already ranked 137th!! Let’s run over to 3 point shootin’! Ray Allen is the best with LeBron at No.30 and Mike isn’t even in the top 200!! But you cats are tellin’ him NOT to chase the ghost? You sound stupid!!
Let’s look at 3 point shootin’ percentage because maybe Mike is hidin’ in the bushes somewhere. Well Steve Kerr is No.1 and neither Jordan or LeBron show up in the top 250!! However, LeBron is ranked 30th in 3-pointers made and Jordan is 219th!! Again, LeBron is still playin’ and is only 31 years old! What does that mean? He’s gonna make more 3-point shots and move up the freakin’ list!!!
Boyz are butt naked and foamin’ at the mouth mad at me at this point but I’m not finished with this foolishness. Let’s peel the onion back and see where these dun fall in sharin’ the freakin’ ball. John Stockton leads the list with LeBron comin’ in at 18th all-time right now! But Jordan wasn’t ain’t even in the top 250!!! So why again, are you tellin’ LeBron not to chase the ghost again? Cause you hatin’!!!
That’s like Beyonce’ tellin’ boyz that she’s chasin’ Michael Jackson and duns tellin’ her NOT to waste her time. She’s the best in the business right now and NOBODY else can hold a candle to her. She’s got another 20 years to be productive and be great. To tell her that she’s wastin’ her time is to simply hate on her. Why? Because you’re tellin’ her not to reach for the so-called Gold Standard. That’s what boyz are doin’ with LeBron! But LeBron has exceed the standard when it comes to all-around play. Proceed!!!
Let’s look at blocks! LeBron is already ranked 137th and Mike isn’t even in the top 250!!! Jordan is 3rd in steals and LeBron is 24th today!!! He’s still got at least 5 more years to play! At least!! When we look at rebounds LeBron is 99th TODAY!!! Jordan isn’t even in the top 250!!! Stop it bruh! You sound crazy! Now why wouldn’t he chase the ghost? In reality he’s already caught the ghost and ran past him if we’re talkin’ all around basketball player!
LeBron’s got just as many championships and Finals MVP’s as Jordan did at 31 years old and 1 less NBA MVP award! So why don’t you want him to chase the ghost? Oh, I forgot, because you’re a hater that doesn’t want to see him put up better numbers across the board by the time he retires so you can’t keep throwin’ up foolishness arguments like Mike went 6-0 in the Finals! Stop me when I start lyin’! Oh and for all you Jordan diehards that think I’m just makin’ numbers up you can find the same joints on Basketball Reference.com! Why? Because the Numbers Don’t Lie bruh!
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.
