Albert Einstein was kickin’ it with the fellas when he said, “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” John C. Maxwell, the famous author, speaker and pastor, hit us off with, “A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them and strong enough to correct them.” Then the O.G., John Wooden, threw his two cents in when he said, “Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who’ll argue with you.”
Well it looks like ole Johnny Football isn’t as dumb as you boyz thought he was playboy. He’s hooked up with the freakin’ Bill Gates of sports, LeBron James, while all of these other cats are sitting around hatin’ on the kid from Akron.
While Manziel was going through all of his foolishness last summer he reached out to LeBron because he figured he was the only person that could relate all of the attention that he was getting at such a young age. Well, six months later Johnny is about to sign with LeBron’s marketing company LRMR ran by his boy Maverick Carter based in Ohio.
For cats that don’t know who Mav is, he’s LeBron’s homeboy that has negotiated several 9 figure deals with Nike for him and controls much if not all of his publicity, marketing and promotional deals. In a nut shell, he’s the engine behind King James’ money off of the court! While all of you duns are hatin’ on LeBron, he’s got his own camp not only gettin’ money but making him even more.
Ole Mav is worth more than $15 million dollars now. Why, because LeBron allowed his partner from the hood to use his God given ability to hustle to flourish while he used his God given ability to hoop. That’s the blueprint playboy!
I see so many of these NBA and NFL cats come into the league with their homeboys in tow and the only reason that they’re in town is to kick it. That’s cool but they aren’t teaching these cats to fish. There is an old colloquialism that says, “If you give a man a fish he’ll eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish he’ll eat for a lifetime.”
Mav already had the ability do get it in when he was in Akron playboy! He just needed a platform and LeBron was smart enough to see that he could hustle harder and better than any cat from the corporate sector because he was from where he was from. The GHETTO! That’s the best classroom in the world!
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Our natural make up is to hustle bruh! Once you have learned how to survive in the hood you can make it anywhere in the world and Corporate America is nothing but the streets on steroids. I’ve been in it for 24 years and using my ghetto instincts have allowed me to become one of the best sales and marketing cats in the country by winning multiple national sales championships with multiple companies playboy.
See when most people outside of the ghetto hear the world hustle they think of illegal activity! The word hustle simply means to get it done, figure it out and don’t allow someone to keep you from winning. That’s hustlin’ bruh! And in the ghetto you’re either going to hustle or starve to death. They don’t teach that class in the suburbs because every kid has a plan B. Parents with bread!
Duns like LeBron and Mav didn’t have a plan B so plan A was to get out of the hood using what God has blessed them with. LeBron had hoopin’ DNA and Mav had a mouth piece! When you put them together you can make millions and nobody is asking to be taken care of.
LeBron’s got power and influence and Johnny Football was smart enough to hook up with a boy that can help him make a whole lot of bread. Cats are sittin’ on subways, city buses and walking to class right now telling you how much they hate LeBron but are rockin’ a fresh pair of Beats by Dre’ in various colors but have no idea that LeBron owns part of the company.
Stop hatin’ on this cat and recognize that he’s giving you the blueprint. Not only is he showing you how to handle your business and be famous without showing up on the police blotter or TMZ. He’s showing you how to create financial opportunities for your inner circle without having to go into your own pockets.
Most celebrities go broke trying to take care of everybody around them. MC Hammer is the poster child for that! LeBron gave his boy a fishing pole and now he can got out on the water by himself! That’s straight gangsta and if you’re still hatin’ on that then you’re the very dun that’s looking for somebody to feed you too. Stop me when I start lyin’!
