The Jay Graves Report

The Cavs are makin’ a HUGE mistake foolin’ around with Derrick Rose bruh! “Wait for it!”

On Monday Derrick Rose showed back up at Big Momma’s house lookin’ for some sweet potato pie. In other words, the dun flew back to Cleveland from the Chi to rejoin the team. Ole boy took off the Wednesday before Thanksgiving frustrated with all of the injuries he’s sustained durin’ the course of his young career and was thinkin’ about retirin’. He’s only 29 years old but his body has been worked over like a 40 year old at the steel mill.

Crazy thing is, the Cavs are welcomin’ him back with open arms. LeBron had this to say, “None of us can understand what he’s going through. It’s impossible to just, you just don’t know. I support him, whatever he’s going through, and be a shield for him if he wants to use us. Hopefully he wants to use us. Just try to keep his mind on basketball and help him with everything else.”

Tyronn Lue broke it down like this, “He wants to be back, and he wants to play. And he’s too young. Too young, too talented to give it up this early. I know he’s frustrated, but like I said, I’m glad he’s in a good place now, and we’re glad to have him back.”

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I’m glad that boyz are understandin’ of what ole boy may be goin’ through. However, how does a dun goin’ back and forth as to wantin’ to play eventually impact a team that will be competin’ for an NBA title down the stretch of the season? I’m just sayin’.

Boyz are sayin’ the right things right now but lets be honest, they still have a business to run and games to play. This isn’t the first time ole boy has dipped out on a team because he was emotional about his situation. Remember last season when the dun went AWOL on the Knicks before they played the New Orleans Pelicans? He didn’t show up for the game and NOBODY had heard from him. He missed the game (his job) without hollerin’ at ANYONE!! That’s called no call no show playa.

Then later that night they find out that he was back in Chicago takin’ care of a family emergency accordin’ to him. He comes back the next mornin’ and is at practice with the team. They fine him and he meets with the press and has this to say, “That was a family issue. For one, it had nothing to do with the team or basketball. But um…that was the first time I had ever felt like that emotionally and I had to be with my family.”

Takin’ this dun back opens the door for this type of foolishness when the Cavs don’t need to be dealin’ with it, especially when they’re tryin’ to make another run to the Finals.

I’m not sayin’ that ole boy isn’t dealin’ with some legitimate issues but they’ve got a team to run and they don’t have time for a boy to be dippin’ in and out when he feels like it.

Yeah, they’re sayin’ all of the right things right now but he’s goin’ to burn them again at a critical juncture of the season and it’s not goin’ to be pretty. I wouldn’t take a chance on him bruh. I’d cut my losses now. He’s dirt cheap at $2.1 million relatively speakin’. Pay that dun out and keep it movin’. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

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!”
