|"I'm hustlin' these boyz bruh and no one's the wiser!"|
So just how much bread did the Dominican Republic put in Kentucky head coach John Calipari's brief case bruh? This cat is the head coach of the Dominican team and nobody's blinked an eye! As I watched the U.S. Team boot up to play on Thursday night. I kept hearing the announcers mentioning Calipari's name but I didn't see him on the American bench with Coach K or his assistant Jim Boeheim from Syracuse. No, this dun was the head coach of the Dominican joint and his pockets were so swollen that he couldn't sit down!
Let's keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I would have understood if he were coaching the Italian team and he were a citizen of Italy but the Dominican team bruh? He may as well have been coaching the boyz from Ghana, West Africa! We all know that Cal is a hustler and he ain't just doing it just for the bread either. He's recruiting a 6'11" freshman in high school named Karl Towns Jr. from Piscataway, NJ. that is a member of guess what? The Dominican National team. Straight up G move Coach Cal. I love it! He gets to coach a kid that he's recruiting and it's all legal. Straight Gangsta! He's getting all the best players because he's out working all of these boyz out here. I'll never knock another man's hustle but just tell me does the matter of being unpatriotic only apply to the players and not the coaches? Just let me know bruh!
I wrote a Hot Joint entitled the "The Dream Team Hustle" explaining how that team basically got taken advantage of and now everyone that has followed them has become a pawn in the game. Basically everyone is pretty much forced to play for free while the Olympic committee makes a fortune off of them. According to Forbes the Brits stand to make an estimated $26 Billion off of the Olympic Games from 2012 thru 2017 because of new construction etc.
When guys like Ray Allen and Dwayne Wade said earlier this year that they thought that they should be paid to play on the Olympic Team boyz in the media went nuts saying, "You should be proud to play for your country etc." Even though they are completely getting used and pimped because every one involved is getting paid but them. The media isn't working for free during the Olympic games nor is it free to attend the events! The jerseys they're selling aren't free, the hotels and restaurants aren't free, the airfare to get over there isn't free. Everybody is gettin' money but the players. Sucka's in my opinion!
However, Coach Cal can go over to the Dominican Republic for a boat load of money and nobody says a word. If it's about loyalty and American pride why isn't he on the sideline with Coach K and Boeheim? Now don't get it twisted, I'm all about boyz getting money but don't use two sets of standards for the same argument. If the players have to be loyal then the coaches should be too. So if cats say that they'd rather not play because the bread ain't right. Then it is what it is and you have to respect that!
Let's keep this real bruh! Blake Griffin got hurt fooling around with the Olympic Team last week right after he signed a $95 million extension, so in that regard he's all good. But what if he'd blown his knee out before signing the deal and it was a career ending injury, he would have ended his career essentially playing a pick up game in the projects. Now what? Stop me when I start lying bruh. But the coaches can go pick up millions for a month or two worth of work and it's cool? Ya'll don't see anything hypocritical about that?
When Blake got hurt it was reported on ESPN that Anthony Davis has been "Summoned" to Las Vegas to take his place! You read that right. They used the word "Summoned" bruh! To summoned is to call for the presence of, as by command or to appear at a specified place, especially before a court. In other words they made it sound like he had no other choice but to show up. How bogus is that?
What if A.D. had said, "Naw, I'm cool on that!" Folks would have destroyed him for being selfish and unpatriotic but he would have had every right to decline. He just saw Blake get injured and could have said, "I don't want to risk injury before my career in the NBA even starts. The rookie deal only pays $10 million and I believe that I'm worth over the course of my career more than a $100 million. So I wanna give myself that opportunity." He would have been a G for saying it but boyz would have killed him for. However, Calipari can coach the Dominican team and it's all good. Now you tell me who's gettin' hustled bruh?
Holla At Ya Boy!
