|"Yeah bruh, I did come at these boyz sideways didn't I?"|
Obviously I clowned the Lakers yesterday in the Hot Joint entitled "Hypnotized" for chasing Phil and forgetting about why they broke up with him in the first place. Boyz got a kick out of it but it was some real talk. Twenty four hours later now Phil is acting like the victim! “I was told that it was my decision to make by Monday!” Bruh, it's never your decision to make unless you own the team!
He’s acting like the woman that told a boy that she wanted the world or bus and now that he’s walked away and swooped up the chick that didn’t ask for so much she’s upset and back tracking on her previous demands. “I didn’t say that I wanted all of that!” The Lakers and the Boston Celtics have won more than 50% of all of the NBA titles in the history of the game. The Lakers aren’t going to let a boy just take over the joint with idiotic demands even though they did play themselves by firing Mike Brown prematurely.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! If you owned a company and some cat you were interviewing made it known that he not only wanted serious bread but he wanted significant say in all personnel decisions along with naming the replacement manager and he was going to tell you what days he was going work. You would have been arrested for jumping on him in the interview. This dun just told you that you were going to pay HIM to take over YOUR company. How much sense does that make?
You have to respect the fact that Phil has 11 championships to his credit but he doesn’t own the team and the fact that they didn’t hire him was a power move and ego trip on the Lakers part and you can’t blame them for that. Now they hired the wrong cat in D’Antoni but it is what it is.
What did Phil really think they were going to do? Did he really think that he could coach from the crib on road games? Was he going to tell his assistant coaches to keep their cell phones on and I’ll call you on timeouts? How stupid does that sound bruh? At least JoePa sat in the press box, had a Diet Coke and listened to the other coaches make decisions. This dude is talking about sitting at the crib and still being the head coach!
Yeah, I know that Jerry Buss has given the reigns to his son Jim and he’s a rogue cat right now just like Steinbrenner’s son with the Yankees but they’re still in charge like it or not. I will admit that they aren’t handling business like their fathers did but that’s even more of a reason as to why they aren’t going to be punk’d. They feel like they’re entitled because of who their fathers are/were. So on GP you know that you can’t come at them sideways and Phil did just that even with 11 titles under his belt! Unfortunately, egos and money run the world bruh and there is no getting around that.
So unless you've got the biggest wallet and an ego to match you can't jump off of the deep end with demands because billionaires will lose money on purpose just to make a point. Ask ole Jerry Jones if I'm lyin'! Just because you’re the best at what you do doesn’t mean that you can ask for some foolishness in the interview because the ego monster on the other side of the table WILL come out, put his clown shoes on too and everybody loses.
Holla At Ya Boy!
