The old timers in the hood would always say, “If you want to know who a boy is just sit in the cut long enough and he’ll tell you who he is. You don’t have to ask him anything! He’ll tell you LOUD and CLEAR exactly what he’s on!!
Well playas…on Thursday the New York Post obtained a copy of George Karl’s upcomin’ book entitled “Furious George” which is his personal memoir to be released in January. In the book the dun goes in on his former players in Denver, Melo, Kenyon Martin, and J.R. Smith. Now it’s cool as long as the dun is talkin’ about basketball and stayin’ on the floor. However, he jumps off of the court and into some personal foolishness. He literally wrote this in a book for the world to read and put it in real alphabets, “Kenyon and Carmelo carried two big burdens: all that money and no father to show them how to act like a man.” What!!?
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Bruh…if you’re a coach and you wanna write a book about coachin’, winnin’ and losin’ games, winnin’ or losin’ championships and why. By all means do that!! Tell the world how much of a jerk certain players were and how hard or easy it was to coach them etc. But when you start talkin’ about a boy’z personal life then those are fightin’ words playa and once you shoot the gun understand that you can’t get the bullets back.
To say that they carry burdens because they’ve got all of that bread and no fathers to show them how to act isn’t for him to comment on. Especially publicly!!! If you wanna have that ignorant conversation behind closed doors then be my guest. It’s still ignorant but we all have dumb conversations behind closed doors.
But guess what playa? Everybody that has or had a father didn’t necessarily learn how to become a man. Just because a boy had a daddy livin’ in the same house with him doesn’t mean that he was a father! Understand this pimpin’, the word father is a verb not a noun. It’s an action word. To be somebody’s father you have to do something and not everybody’s father, unfortunately, did that something. I know cats that have become great men that didn’t have a father and I know some cats that have turned out to be trash that had one.
But to act like you’re God and to say that out loud in a freakin’ book was the ultimate player haters move. That’s literally a move that could get a boy jawed in public. Everybody’s got issues bruh, includin’ you George Karl! So don’t sit up on a high horse and act like you’re beyond reproach. The nerve of these cats!
You would think that some of these white coaches that have been coachin’ black players from the hood that come in with all kinds of baggage would at some point begin to understand their nature. You would think that after bein’ around cats for decades that they would learn the culture of what’s appropriate and inappropriate behavior when dealin’ with certain groups of people. What’s acceptable in the suburbs or rural America isn’t always acceptable in urban America.
If you’re in locker rooms, on buses, planes and in hotels with these cats for years!!! Then you should understand where the boundaries are set on foolishness. Just like Dabo Swinney down at Clemson when he spit in the face of black folks earlier this season when he said that if Kaepernick and others don’t like it here then they should move to another country. When he’s got a team full of black players that feel the same way about racial injustice, inequality and duns that look like them bein’ killed by police officers at traffic stops. And they’re UNARMED!!!
It’s insultin’, to say the least, that the Phil Jackson’s, Bobby Knight’s, Mike Ditkas’, Dabo Swinney’s and George Karl’s of the world are coachin’ our kids and they don’t care jack squat about them. How do I know that they don’t care about them? It’s because they keep makin’ ignorant comments about them. As long as they can win games they could care less about them or their families. Stop me when I start lyin’!
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) Jawed: verb – to get hit in the jaw without warning.
