Dorothy Thompson, the well-known journalist and radio broadcaster, once said, “Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict – alternatives to passive or aggressive responses, alternatives to violence.” Jiddu Krishnamurti, the famous speaker and writer, gave it to us like this, “A man who is not afraid is not aggressive, a man who has no sense of fear of any kind is really a free, a peaceful man.” Then Jose Mourinho , the famous Portuguese soccer player, got excited and started makin’ up words on a boy when he said, “The world is so competitive, aggressive, consumive, selfish and during the time we spend here we must be all but that.”
Well playas…I beg to differ with ole boy on that! There are times when a boy needs to be competitive, aggressive and selfish! Now I’m still tryin’ to figure out where he pulled the word consumive from. That’s not even a real word playa. I guess when he gets fired up they just start comin’ up and out. But anyway, Sunday afternoon was one of those times when LeBron needed to be all of those freakin’ words if he and the Cavs were gonna get out of Chicago alive. He finally took control of the joint and hit a game winnin’ shot to even the series at two games apiece.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Lebron drives me nuts!!! He’s the most talented basketball player that I’ve ever seen. He’s 6’8” 250lbs. and at his heaviest he’s been 270lbs. Let me put it in perspective for you playa. He’s 2 inches taller than Jordan and 50lbs to 60lbs. bigger and just as athletic. The dun can play all five positions if need be and has the basketball IQ of a genius. Jordan could only play the 1 and the 2! However, LeBron has one flaw! He’s too much of a team guy and he’s too freakin’ nice. He grew up in the hood playa but he ain’t hood. He’s missin’ that fire that boyz from the ghetto have. It’s just not there bruh!
What does all of that mean to a boy? It means that when it’s time to be selfish and take over a freakin’ game he won’t. Sure, is LeBron always lookin’ to make the right basketball play? Yes! Does it drive a boy crazy when you just wanna see him take over? You darn right it does!! And that’s the edited version.
I get it bruh, he’s lookin’ to always do what the team needs for him to do and we’re so used to duns like Jordan or Kobe just takin’ over at the drop of a hat that when LeBron doesn’t we start pullin’ our teeth out and puttin’ them back in upside down.
There isn’t a cat on the floor that can guard him in this Chicago series. Well…in any series but let’s stick with this one. He can get to the rack any time he wants because he’s either gonna make the shot, get fouled or both. It’s imperative that he’s aggressive from here on out because Kevin Love is out and J.R. Smith’s a freakin’ idiot that might do anything at any time to hurt the team. So guess what pimpin’? It’s all on you!
Instead of goin’ to the rack at will that dun was settlin’ for a jumper that wouldn’t fall all day. He was a freakin’ 10 of 30 from the field and 1 of 7 from downtown. He was 4 of 4 from the foul line but he should have taken at least 10 to 15 foul shots in a game like that bruh. No way should he only have 4 free throw attempts.
Yeah, I know that he put up 25 points, destroyed them with 14 rebounds and threw 8 dimes! But a dun of his talents could score 35 a night at will if he’d just be a tad bit more aggressive and selfish! I still haven’t figured out what consumive is but he can be that too.
I know boyz are focusin’ on the 8 turnovers that he made but not understandin’ that if he’s gotta do more for this team that becomes a part of it. When Magic led the league in assists he also led the league in turnovers. So it is what it is playa. I will say that if the dun would stop lookin’ for a boy to pass it to he wouldn’t turn the joint over as much. Especially, in big games!!
I guess that I’m spoiled after seein’ cats like Jordan and Kobe take over joints for so many years that when a boy actually plays the game the way Dr. Naismith actually invented it to be played , it’s frustratin’.
For all of you simple minded individuals that means that LeBron is playin’ TEAM basketball on EVERY rip down the floor like Dr. Naismith intended him to do. However, some times you’ve gotta be selfish with the rock and make something happen like Jordan and Kobe did.
You’re sittin’ there like, “Take that dun to the rack! He can’t stop you!,” all night long. The Bulls shouldn’t even be in these freakin’ games even without Kevin Love or J.R. Smith bein’ an idiot. If LeBron would just take over when he needs to Kyrie, Triston Thompson and Mosgov would be enough to get by these boyz with no problem.
It’s just frustratin’ to watch a cat with all of that talent not destroy boyz at will EVERY night! We need to see the LeBron that completely obliterated the Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals in 2010 when it put up 45 points, had 15 rebounds and threw 5 dimes. Now he doesn’t need to score 45 a night playa. He just needs to play with that type of aggression every night.
Ole boy was puttin’ his back to the basketball and bullyin’ boyz at will. He settled for way too many jumpers in Chicago on Sunday afternoon bruh. If that joint ain’t fallin’ turn around and go to the rack and stop drivin’ boyz crazy out here. I’m not a Cavs fan, I’m a basketball fan! I just wanna see a boy do what nobody else can do. LeBron has more talent than any basketball player that I’ve EVER seen and I was born in 1967! So that covers a lot of cats. Just do what you’re supposed to do! Maybe I wouldn’t be so hard on him if Jordan and Kobe would have been born after him. Then I’d have a completely different view of the game but that didn’t happen so stop me when I start lyin’!
