Why LeBron just ran out of excuses playa! “Put Up or Shut Up”

Emily Dickinson once said, “The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.” Winston Churchill gave it to us like this, “I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught.” Then Napoleon Hill put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you ready or not, to put this plan into action.”

Well playas…the Cleveland Cavaliers have been lookin’ for the final pieces needed to make a championship run this season and now it looks like they could be READY to put the plan into action. On Sunday they got word that Deron Williams had cleared waivers and was ready to sign with them on Monday as a their backup point guard. The dun LeBron has been screamin’ about needin’ all season long has finally dropped out of the sky. Then late Sunday boyz found out that Andrew Bogut was tryin’ to negotiate a buyout with the dull 76ers to make his way to Cleveland.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! If these pieces fall into place for the Cavs I don’t want to hear another sound out of LeBron about needin’ anything but a drink of water and a Tic Tac for the rest of the season. He made sure that everybody and their baby’s momma got paid in the offseason. All of his boyz got their bread and was in the car when they left the station in late October when trainin’ camp was over.

Tristan Thompson got his money last year, J.R. Smith got his bread in October with a four year deal worth $57 million. Kevin Love and Kyrie are both signed, sealed and delivered like Stevie Wonder. So everybody’s gettin’ money like Junior Mafia and it’s all the way up like Fat Joe. They’ve got the back up point they’ve been whoofin’ about and now Bogut is about to fall into their lap too.

That team is ready for the back end of this season from a roster standpoint so it’s put up or shut up now LeBron. I completely understood that ole boy needed help at the back up point because the duns they had weren’t cuttin’ it. He was playin way too many minutes in January to be able to play through June and win a championship. LeBron has played more minutes this year than ever before.

However, that was on him playa. He was the dun playin’ GM puttin’ the roster together and pushed for everybody to get paid. Now they’ve got the highest payroll in the history of the NBA. That was on him not Golden State! If ole boy wanted or needed help he should have taken less bread himself and gotten better backups off of the rip.

You can’t push for all of your boyz to get paid when you’re gettin’ paid too and complain that you still need help. It made sense that he needed the help but there’s only so much bread to go around. Michael Jordan understood that concept back in the ’90’s bruh. He only made $3 million per year for years so that the Bulls could bring boyz in to help him win championships. He got his bread from the Jordan brand and then took his money on the back end with the Bulls.

He knew that if he took all of the bread he couldn’t get the right pieces around him to win at the level he needed to win. I’m just sayin’. So maybe LeBron needs to take a page out of Jordan’s book goin’ forward if this doesn’t work.

Boyz are puttin’ a lot of faith into Deron Williams playa and there’s a reason why he’s available. I’m just sayin’ and stop me when I start lyin’!
