|"Durant & LeBron at the Annual Corn Balls of America meeting!"|
People in this country are fascinated with superstars! They set the tone for what's hot and what's not in the world of music and fashion. It's amazing that if a famous cat puts on a shirt or wears his hair a certain way. Joe's will co-sign it as being the new lick! Justin Bieber had the silliest hair cut I've ever seen when he first came out and every white kid 12 to 24 was rockin' it over night! If Kanye West puts on a tight sweater all of the black kids go out and buy the same joint to wear to school looking the same way! I'm still questioning whether he's from Chicago cuz he's Cornyyyy or should I say extra corn chip! Chi-town cats don't get down like that. I know because I'm from G.I.! His music is hot though! I can't hate but I know he got beat up everyday on the south side! Now even the NBA players are looking like corn balls with cheese now!
We wanted superstars so now we've got them in the NBA Finals which starts on Tuesday! The league and the network got it's dream match-up. The lovable "Young Bloods" vs. the Evil Empire! The world has fallin' in love with Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder and they simply hate LeBron James and the Miami Heat! The two best players in the league going at it for all of the marbles! It's like the neighborhood street fight between the two cats that ran the school, brawling over the finest girl in home room! Winner takes all! My only problem with these cats is that they both look like squares off of the court! It's like "Kanye West meets Urkle meets Sponge Bob meets I would get beat down in the hood twenty years ago for wearing that" guy!
These two guys have set the standard for what a real basketball player plays like. LeBron is the reigning MVP and Durant is the reigning Scoring Champion! You couldn't ask for any more drama than that! The ratings will set all kinds of records bruh because the world wants to see LeBron lose to the so-called nice guy. That's always been the formula for television and movie success. George Lucas made a fortune off of that recipe with Star Wars and Vince McMahon did the same thing with WWE. This is even more amazing because it's not scripted.
Do you realize that last Thursday night’s NBA Eastern Conference Finals Game 6 on ESPN Heat vs. Celtics generated an 8.2 overnight rating? That was the highest overnight for an NBA game ever on cable television (records back to 2003), according to Nielsen. The 8.2 for Game 6 surpasses the previous record, a 7.9 for Game 4 of the same series, as the best overnight ever. The Finals will be ridiculous in terms of interest.
|Look at these dudes bruh!|
These Joe's are coming in with plaid shirts tight enough for you to see their hearts beating in them with glasses on that would get your sneakers pulled off in the alley bruh. The crazy thing is that women are falling for the Oakey Doke! D. Wade showed up in pink skinny pants with pink shoes during the Semifinals and has a beast on his arm! Wheredeydodadat?
You couldn't get anywhere near a woman dressed like that back in the day. Now superstars at dressing like the Revenge of the Nerds and taking over the party. I realize that money trumps all but Steve Urkle would be a 1st Lieutenant in the hood now! I'm just glad that we've got Superstars in the Finals because everyone wants to see the very best go at it. Even if it does mean that our kids will get even more corny as a result of it!
Holla At Ya Boy!
