|"Get off me son!"|
Well, the Boston Celtics are doing just that! Let's keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! They have outplayed and out hustled the Miami Heat to take a 3-2 led in the Eastern Conference Finals with an amazing win on the road 94-90 in Game 5. Coaches always say, "Well son, they just wanted it more than you did! There are no substitutions for passion!" Kevin Garnett is my favorite player in the league and always has been for one reason, his passion.
He's been in the league for 17 years and he still plays with the same intensity as he did back in high school at Farragut Career Academy in Chicago. Every time he's on the floor he's talking $100 worth of noise and backing it up! I explained to you guys in the Hot Joint entitled "The Game Inside the Game" that I had no problem with LeBron laughing in his face and that it was standard hood protocol. I also told you that it would only motivate KG down the stretch too. In Game 5 he talked, woofed and barked his way to 26 points and grabbed 11 rebounds putting the Celtics on his back. He was the guy in the hood that the rules never applied to. He was VIP before you understood what that was. They just called it being "That Dude!"
When you mess with the neighbors dog because she's locked up, you've got to be prepared for the day that she brakes the chain bruh. Either you've got to be a flat out sprinter or run with cats that are slower than you. Unfortunately, LeBron is tied to the hip with boyz that are slower than he is. So they all got bit!
KG's my guy but I pull for LeBron because folks hate on the kid so much. What more can the freaking guy do? Pretty much during the playoffs he's consistently put up 30 points and 13-18 rebounds! He put up 30 and 13 in Game 5! Not to mention he's playing 44 plus minutes a night and he's playing multiple positions in the process. The cat left Cleveland so that he wouldn't have to shoulder ALL of the responsibility and he's doing it ALL over again.
It's like asking Adrian Peterson to play running back for two quarters then move over to tight end for part of the 3rd, only to play the rest of it at offensive guard. Then in the 4th they need him to line back up at running back and rush for 92 yards to win the game! It's outright foolish what this guy has to do to win a freaking game!
|"Stop whining bruh and just play!"|
The Heat can only blame themselves because they just didn't want it more than Boston. It's just that simple bruh! After every missed called they've cried and complained for calls that they thought they should have gotten. While the Heat have been looking at the refs and whining the Celtics have been getting down the floor to get easy buckets this entire series.
If you learn nothing else in life understand that there's no substitute for effort! Talent many times will fool you into believing that you don't have to put in the work! Miami thought that they could just roll their jerseys out on the floor and win a championship and it doesn't work that way bruh! You've got be able to grind every night!
Holla At Ya Boy!
