Bertrand Russell, the famous British philosopher, once said, “Indignation is a submission of our thoughts, but not of our desires.” Henry Miller, the famous writer, gave it to us like this, “True strength lies in submission which permits one to dedicate his life, through devotion, to something beyond himself.” Then the big homie John F. Kennedy shut the buildin’ down by sayin’, “The path we have chosen for the present is full of hazards, as all paths are. The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.”
Well playboy…ole John F. sounds good talkin’ about American patriotism and never givin’ up on the quest for freedom. However, when Father Time jumps out of the Range Rover and tells a boy to go sit his “A” down somewhere he’s gotta surrender. This is the NBA playa not the quest for freedom and you can’t defy the laws of age.
Now Kobe has gone down with yet another injury that will sideline him for the rest of this season too. On Friday the Lakers made it official after ole boy met with team doctor, Steven Lombardo, where he found a significant tear in the rotator cuff in his right shoulder.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I’ve been tellin’ all of these diehard Black Mamba fans since before last season bruh; I’m talkin’ about before the 2013 season, that Kobe needed to go somewhere and sit down. I told you boyz that the Lakers were out of their freakin’ minds to pay him not only the $30 million he got last year but the $48 million that they extended him with for this year and next season. Why? Because FATHER TIME IS UNDEFEATED!
That dun tore his Achilles in April of 2013 before they were scheduled to pay him $30 million dollars for the 2013-2014 season bruh. I told you boyz then that they would be better off amnestying him and movin’ on. But Jeanie Buss and Co. fell for the Oakey Doke even before the dun recovered from the Achilles tear and signed him to a two year extension for $48 million.
When he tried to come back from that injury he suffered an upper tibia fracture and was ruled out for the remainder of the 2014 season too. Now he’s gone again playa! Father Time is not playin’ playboy! They’ve paid this cat $54 million over last year and the remainder of this year and they still owe him another $24 million for next year pimpin’!
Now keep in mind that they will have paid one cat a total of $78 million over three seasons and they’re still one of the worst teams in the league.
Now I’m not mad at Kobe for gettin’ his bread but the Lakers look like some complete suckas at this point for payin’ him all of that bread and he can’t play. He’s 36 years old with crazy injuries and he’s really like 39 because he’s been in the league since he was 18.
Let me put it where the goats can get it bruh! Kobe is his own worst enemy! He still thinks that he’s a first option and he’s not! Why? Because he’s freakin’ 36 years old with too many miles on his body to be the first option. He can’t play every night! He can’t take all of the freakin’ shots! He can’t play extended minutes. Heck, he can’t even practice! Why? Because FATHER TIME is UNDEFEATED!
If he would take his pride off and realize that if he’s still gonna play he’s gotta come off of the bench and play 15 minutes a night. But he can’t try to be the man and keep up with these young boyz because now they’re gonna start takin’ shots at him and we don’t wanna see that. Sure, he’s still got flashes of greatness but it’s only flashes bruh! Why? Because FATHER TIME is UNDEFEATED!
That’s the problem when boyz hang around too long. He’s already one of the top 5 players of all-time. Sit down bruh. If he doesn’t go sit down like right now he’s gonna need a closed casket at his retirement. You know how boy gets sick or dies in an accident and they have to put a picture on top of the casket because you wanna remember that dun when he was vibrant? That’s what they’re gonna do for Kobe if he keeps hangin’ around. Boyz will put the Kobe with the nappy fro on the casket bruh.
Remember, they had to do the same thing for Jordan. That dun hung around in that dull Wizards uniform and couldn’t dunk, lookin’ bad comin’ down the floor, gettin’ crossed over by boyz half his age. It was dull! We didn’t wanna see that but we were forced to watch it. All he had to do was bounce and stay gone after he hit the shot against Utah in 1998. He retired again in January of 1999 but that dun came back lookin’ crazy in 2001. By the time he did pull the sneakers off boyz had to act like they didn’t see him in a Wizard’s uniform. They had the old pictures of him in his Bulls joint not the dull 45 but the 23 on top of the casket.
Kobe is gonna be the same way because he’s not goin’ to retire! Why? Because the Lakers still owe him another $24 million next year and he’s not leavin’ that on the table. So you already know that it’s about to be dull! Stop me when I start lyin’!
2) Dun: The person in question, guy, dude, etc.
3) Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st!: Let me be straight up with you.
4) Oakey Doke: The shady game bein’ run, the foolishness.
5) Let me put it where the goats can get it bruh!: Let me put it on the ground for you. Makin’ it plain and simple.
