|"What else you want me to say bruh?"|
Confucius says, “Old age, believe me, is a good and pleasant thing. It is true you are gently shouldered off the stage, but you are given such a comfortable front stall as spectator.” Mark Twain gave it to us like this, “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind it doesn’t matter.”
Finally ole Kobe Bryant is coming to his senses about the Lakers! After getting beat by the dull Philadelphia 76ers on New Years Day 103-99 the Black Mamba finally admitted what I’ve been telling delusional Laker fans since the summer! They’re old and can’t compete with these young boyz out here.
"'Cause we're old as s---," said the 34-year-old superstar when asked why a lack of energy has been a problem for his team all season. "What do you want? We just got to figure out how to play when we don't have that energy. We got to change things up a little bit defensively. We got to figure out what we want to do offensively, figure out what we want to do on nights when we don't have those legs or have that energy."
There is only one cat that remains undefeated in the world of sports bruh and that’s Father Time! The NBA is a young man’s game and don’t ever forget that. These duns play darn near every night and travel constantly. The older a cat gets the more problematic it becomes. Not only do they have to play 82 regular season games but in order to win a championship you’ve got to play two extra months of playoff basketball.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Why in the world would you ever think that this team would get through the West let alone beat whoever comes out of the East? The Lakers aren’t even the best team in the Staples Center, playboy! I’ve been saying it since the summer, Steve Nash is 147 years old and a liability on defense. Dwight Howard is as soft mentally as drugstore cotton candy and he can’t survive along side of Kobe because he’s too demanding.
As the season progresses, these young boyz are going to start taking more and more advantage of them because they’ll continue to run out of gas. After a while the Lakers will just empty their pockets without a fight when cats roll up on them. Boyz won’t even need a gun to rob these Joe’s. They’re about to start gettin’ DeBo’d all over the league. Give me all of your money, jewels and sneakers bruh and I’ll be back in a couple of weeks to re-up! Next time I want the Presidential Rolex, the new Jordan’s in the box and your newest whip along with your girl in the passenger seat.
If you don’t believe me listen to this cat bruh! "You just saw an old damn team. I don't know how else to put it to you. We're just slow. You saw a team over there that was just younger and just had fresher legs and just played with more energy, and we were just stuck in the mud. I think individually we all have to figure out how to get ourselves ready each and every game to have high level of energy. That's all that is." Does that sound like a guy that’s ready to keep fighting? Not at all! It sounds like he’s preparing the excuse to me homeboy.
Sure, they can make some trades for some young blood but the chemistry won't be there in time to save the season. I told you boyz over the summer that it was a wrap on the Lakers and now you're boy Kobe has just agreed with me. They've got no answer for OKC, the Clippers or Memphis and that's just the West bruh!
It’s about to be easy to run through the Lakers because the Black Mamba has admitted defeat and Father Time is their personal pilot now. They’ll give you everything they’ve got but he’s telling you that they don’t have anything left and he’s tired of wrestling with them to give him more! Anytime a boy gives it to you like that, he’s done playa! He may as well have said “UNCLE.” Kobe just left the front door open and put all of the valuables in a box in the living room. Just lock the door when you leave and don’t come upstairs and bother my family.
It's like the old cat at the club that finally realizes that he's the oldest dun in the joint. He used to walk over to a table full of broads and spit his best line without trippin'. Now that he realizes that they're laughing at him. He's gun shy! That's the Lakers right now bruh.
If you don’t believe me! Sit in the cut and watch it play out. I’d be surprised if the Lakers even make the playoffs this year and if they do, barely!
Holla At Ya Boy!
