Niccolo Machiavelli once said, “If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.” Then Alexander Pope, the 18th century English poet, fired back with, “On wrongs swift vengeance waits.” Well playas…on disses swift come backs by LaVar Ball waits for no man. Earlier this week George Raveling, the International Director of Basketball for Nike and first black coach in the Pac 12 (Washington State), dissed ole boy durin’ the World Congress of Sports in California.
Raveling jumped out of the birthday cake butt naked foamin’ at the mouth and told boyz that “Ball was the worst thing to happen to basketball in 100 years!”
So you already know that ole LaVar got butt naked too, oiled up and dove off of the cake stand into the punch bowl on this dun. And you know the dun went to social media with it because that’s where the masses are. He posted a joint on Instagram tellin’ ole boy, “Let me tell you something: I know I’m on the right step because if nothing ain’t happen like this in 100 years, guess what? We in a new lane, baby,” LaVar Ball said via Instagram. “That Big Baller Brand about to be your competition.”
Oh he didn’t stop there either. Since Raveling wanted to break the skin with tellin’ boyz that Ball was the worse thing to happen to hoop in 100 years ole boy ripped the skin too. He called ole George out for stabbin’ Sonny Vaccaro in the back.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! For all of you cats that don’t know who Sonny Vaccaro is, he’s the cat that’s responsible for gettin’ Jordan to sign with Nike. Nike didn’t really want Jordan and Jordan didn’t really want Nike. However, it was Sonny that convinced boyz to make the deal happen and the rest is history. Well, Sonny and George were best friends and now they can’t stand each other because accordin’ to Sonny, ole boy stabbed him in the back by tellin’ duns that he wasn’t as responsible for Jordan gettin’ to Nike etc. Now the dun actually works for Nike. Ain’t that a blip?
So back to dissin’ a loose cannon. I guess Raveling hasn’t been payin’ attention to the foolishness that LaVar is capable of. You don’t go at a boy that simply doesn’t care what he says and he’s in it for the pub anyway. Any pub is good pub playa you should know that if anybody. You work for freakin’ Nike who owns the Jordan Brand that’s been sellin’ boyz the same darn shoes for years!!!
All you did was help promote the brand he’s hypin’ cats up to buy. Whether you think he’s crazy or not he’s goin’ to sell this foolishness because he’s buildin’ a huge followin’ off of this type of foolishness. Kim Kardashian is sellin’ EVERYTHING based off of bein’ famous for a darn sex tape playa. Not only is she famous with more than 98 million followers on Instagram but she’s got the ENTIRE family rollin’ in money and NOBODY has a stitch of talent.
So to say that LaVar is the worst thing to ever happen to basketball is ludicrous. As long as something is popular it’s goin’ to sell regardless of how you feel. Why? Because duns will buy whatever they deem is HOT. There are ENTIRE rap empires that have been built where none of the artist could rap. There are singers that can’t sing but have platinum records. There have been clothin’ lines where the clothes look a hot mess but they sell off of the shelves. There are CEO’s that can’t manage but run major corporations. There are presidents that can’t govern but they’ve been elected to govern.
So don’t tell me that someone isn’t goin’ to take a chance on this cat’s brand because he’s crazy. He’s smarter than you think he is and it’s freakin’ workin’ as long as duns keep givin’ him air time by continuin’ to acknowledge him. Naw playa, he won’t get a billion dollars but whatever he’s offered is better than what he has right now. And if fools are buyin’ it now on his website. All some manufacturer needs to know is that they is a demand for the product and it’s Chris Brown up in this piece. “On and Poppin!” 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) Chris Brown: noun – famous R&B singer with a hit record called “On and Poppin'”
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!”
