Benjamin Franklin once said, “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.” Nikola Tesla gave it to us like this, “It is paradoxical, yet true, to say, that the more we know, the more ignorant we become in the absolute sense, for it is only through enlightenment that we become conscious of our limitations. Precisely one of the most gratifying results of intellectual evolution is the continuous opening up of new and greater prospects.” Then Stephen Colbert kept it real enough to eat off of when he spit, “In order to maintain an untenable position, you have to be actively ignorant. One motto on the show is, ‘Keep your facts, I’m going with the truth.”
Well playas…I’m in the ride with ole Stephen on this one bruh! Over the past week all I’ve been hearin’ is boyz callin’ LeBron a coach killer! Not just the “blinded with hate for LeBron” fans but duns that actually call themselves sports journalists. Duns that work for major news outlets and that have real radio and TV shows bruh. These clowns are actually sayin’ out loud that LeBron James is a coach killer since David Blatt got pushed out of the limo like ole Eddie Cain.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! LeBron got drafted No.1 OVERALL in 2003 by the Cleveland Cavaliers! Do you know why they had the No.1 pick? Because they were the worst freakin’ team in the NBA!! That’s how it works pimpin’! The teams with the worst records draft at the top of the board. So the dun that was coachin’ the team at the time, Paul Silas, was doin’ a HORRIBLE job. LeBron was 18 when they drafted him and Paul was fired when ole boy was 20 and the Cavs were still HORRIBLE! How is that killin’ a coach? He was consistently losin’!!!
Then Mike Brown showed up and within 2 years LeBron had a team full of bums in the FINALS!!! Mike Browm benefited from coachin’ him. Not the other way around. Are you serious? After 7 years of complete foolishness from one of the worst run organizations in the league LeBron was about to dip and Dan Gilbert, at the last minute, decides that he needs LeBron’s input on whether to keep Mike Brown or not but LeBron never returned his calls. Why? Because Mike Brown was longer his problem because he was on his way out of the door pimpin’.
So how was LeBron responsible for Mike Brown gettin’ tossed? Hey, didn’t he get pushed out of a limo like 5 games into the season in Los Angeles? Then didn’t that dun get fired again in Cleveland when LeBron was in Miami? Is he coachin’ now? How is that on LeBron? I’m just askin’ playboy!!
Erik Spoestra, who nobody and their baby’s momma’s momma, Ms. Jackson, even knew before LeBron, went to 4 straight NBA Finals and won two championships messin’ with this dun. And when LeBron left South Beach he couldn’t even make the playoffs! How do you go to 4 straight Finals and then don’t even get invited to the party the followin’ year?
Then David freakin’ Blatt, who had NEVER coached a day in the NBA, got in the car with this cat with no help because of injuries in his first ever NBA playoff appearance and went to the FINALS foolin’ around with LeBron. There is a reason why the dun has coached his ENTIRE career in Europe bruh! If he were any good owners and GM’s would have swooped him years ago!!! But they didn’t!
Sure, did LeBron influence the firin’ of David Blatt? You darn right he did! LeBron was coachin’ the darn team anyway!! David Blatt didn’t know his butt from a whole in the wall and everybody associated with basketball knew that. He was a deer in headlights all season and if it weren’t for LeBron’s talent and extraordinary basketball IQ he would have crashed and burned as an NBA coach. All you had to do was pay attention to what that dun did comin’ out of timeouts and plays he would try to draw up at the end of games. Blatt had LeBron takin’ the ball out at the end of a game bruh! I would have fired that dun too!!
What LeBron should have done was tell Dan Gilbert that he wanted his guy, whoever that is, to be his coach before he signed with Cleveland again. Yeah, I know that Blatt had already been hired but that was on LeBron to flex his muscle in makin’ the decision to come back. Either give me my guy or I’m goin’ somewhere else. That’s his fault. I would have had that dun fired before he started because I’m LeBron. But LeBron bein’ LeBron wanted everybody to like him again and that’s on him!
He’s not the first and surely won’t be the last superstar to get a boy fired! Magic Johnson got Paul Westhead pushed out of the limo and nobody blinked. Stop actin’ like LeBron is a demon when he’s makin’ these boyz careers. Why don’t you ask all of the assistant coaches that have gotten head jobs simply by bein’ in the whip with him. Go holler at Mike Malone, John Kuester, Melvin Hunt and Tyronn Lue if he’s killin’ coaches. As a matter of fact, ask their wives. Again’ like Stephen Colbert always says, “Keep your facts, I’m goin’ with the truth.” Stop me when I start lyin’!
