|"They don't give these joints out for Christmas bruh!"|
Albert Einstein once said, “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” Malcolm X broke it down like this, “You’re not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it.” Even the old jicks hanging out in front of the liquor store would say, “Man if we gone talk don’t lie to me. Otherwise, just give me 42 cents on this 40 ounce. As a matter of fact, just go head and buy the joint for me.”
This time last year all you saw or heard on TV, sports radio and every form of social media were boyz hatin’ on LeBron because he hadn’t won a title yet. Now after he and the Heat completely destroyed OKC in the Finals boyz have been as quite as a church mouse. I kept telling these clowns that it was just a matter of time. He was only 27 years old and up to this point he was the greatest basketball “PLAYER” (not scorer or finisher) we’ve ever seen. Yes, that includes Jordan too bruh! Like I’ve been saying for years Jordan didn’t sniff a Final or a title until he was 28 years old.
LeBron has been to 3 Finals won 3 MVP’s, swooped up 2 Gold Medals and an NBA title all by 27 homeboy! Not to mention that he’s 6’8” 260lbs with a 42 inch vertical, can run like a gazelle, play and defend all five positions all with a smile on his face. Y’all know the drill. I’ve said it a million times and even broke down all the facts in the Hot Joint entitled "Bamboozled" last summer. Now all of the experts are slowly coming around to my thinking on this cat. Coach K said shortly after the Olympics that LeBron was the MOST UNIQUE player he’s ever seen. Stop talking in code bruh!
Phil Jackson came out and said that he had all the tools to become better than Jordan. For y’all that can’t read between the lines. He’s saying just sit in the cut and watch this boy change the game because we’ve never seen anybody like this before. I’ve been telling boyz for years that you can’t compare an unfinished resume to a complete resume. It simply isn’t fair. You have to look at the careers by age in order to have the argument. That’s like me telling my 15 year old son that I make more bread than he does and I’m 30 years older than he is and been grinding longer. Lebron’s got 1 and Jordan’s got 6! Sounds stupid doesn’t it? Just be patient. Jordan didn't win all of those joints over night!
All you gotta do is pay attention to this cats game and it’ll tell you everything. He told you last week that it’s not his job to lead the league in scoring so he doesn’t. He only takes 18.2 field goal attempts per game. Why? Because he plays the game the way it’s supposed to be played. However, he has put up at least 20 points in all 24 games this season!
Ole boy said in that same interview, "If I wanted to, I could lead the league in scoring, but that's not my job here.” My job is to do a lot of everything -- rebounding, passing and defending so that takes away from my scoring. I've done (the scoring title in ‘07-’08 with 30ppg) before. I'm capable of doing it, but my game sometimes doesn't allow me to have those big nights."
That’s gangsta bruh! He’s telling you that scoring isn’t as important as winning to him. So he’s doing what it takes to win games and not lead the league in attempts or points. He’s currently ranked 5th with 25.2 ppg behind Kobe, Melo, Durant and Hardin.
When you look at career numbers LeBron is more concerned about getting other cats involved than just scoring. That's why boyz keep getting in line to play with him like Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis. If they win it again this year you'll see another influx of duns in Miami wanting to play with him too. It won't stop bruh!
Over his career he’s averaged 27pts, 7 dimes and 7 Rb’s. Kobe is 25-5- 5, Melo is 24-3-6 and Durant is 26-2-7. My point is this stud could take over as a scorer but the game is bigger than just one cat scoring. Like I keep saying, “Just sit in the cut and wait for it. LeBron hasn’t even reached his prime yet bruh! I’m just sayin’!
Holla At Ya Boy!
