|"I help boyz score and I get what I want too!"|
The Dalai Lama once said, “Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.” The famous sales guru, Zig Ziglar, spit that fire when he said, “If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.”
Chris Paul won the All-Star MVP award by on Sunday night by helping boyz get what they wanted, buckets. CP3 finished with 20 points and 15 dimes to lead the West over the East 143-138. He understands that his job is to help his teammates accomplish their goals. So he was more than happy to oblige because Durant picked up 30 and his Clippers teammate Blake Griffin put 19 into the kitty.
Being a point guard in an All-Star game is like a ghetto thief rolling through the suburbs for the first time discovering that nobody locks their doors, nobody has an alarm and most importantly, nobody owns a Pit Bull. You can completely have your way.
“You just want to play fast. I like to throw the lob. I like to see guys hit 3’s, “Paul said. “When we’re out on the court with all that firepower, why wouldn’t you want to make passes? You’ve got KD filling one of the lanes, you’ve got Blake, Kobe on the wing. There’s nothing like it.”
Now let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! These games are worthless to watch until the last 7 minutes only if boyz have kept it close. Fortunately, it was close in the 4th quarter on Sunday night and boyz started playing defense down the stretch. Ole Kobe was hyped and going all out on LeBron blocking two of his shots and talking a $100 worth of noise in the process. Like he completely forgot ole boy gave it to him when it counted a few weeks ago. It was still great to see the passion was there even though the joint didn't count. It had just as much point as the Bobcats trying to win some more games this season.
What I couldn’t understand was why was Buster Brown playing in the All-Star Game and he’s been battling a shoulder injury? If Dwight’s been hurt then it would have only made sense to use the All-Star break to re-charge the batteries and get healthy. So what’s really going on playa?
Your team sucks right now primarily because you’re not giving 100% every night and, well, Jim Buss is an idiot but that's another story. Your boy Kobe is frustrated with you and you wanna play in a game that means absolutely nothing? How dull is that bruh? Was I the only person that noticed that or what? Mitch, trade that dun before he destroys your team this summer.
Now that the All-Star break is over let’s get back down to business. Coming down the stretch it’s Miami, New York, San Antonio and Oklahoma City. San Antonio’s got the best record in the league at 42-12 but they’ll run out of gas in the Western Conference Finals again. That's even if they've got enough gas to make it that far. So I’m not looking for them to make a serious run. Like I keep saying, New York can’t win with both Melo and Amare’ on the floor at the same time in the playoffs because there aren’t enough balls to go around.
I can hear some clown screaming, “You forgot about the Clippers and the Pacers.” In my Big Momma voice, “Shut up and get out of grown folk conversation!” Notice that she leaves the "S's" off to let you know "she ain't playin'!" Neither of those teams are championship ready. They’re good but not ready. So go sit down somewhere. Where was I? Oh yeah, so again we’re left with Miami and OKC! We'll get the same result as last year because OKC is the same team they were last year. The Beard was hiding in the toilet the entire series so not having him doesn't change anything.
Holla At Ya Boy!
