The French poet and novelist Anatole France once said, “It is well for the heart to be naïve and the mind not to be.” Julius Erving said it this way, “One of the most predictable things in life is there will be change. You are better off if you can have a say in the change. But you are ignorant or naïve if you don’t think there will be change, whether you want it to or not.”
The Los Angeles Lakers under Jim Buss has already made countless mistakes this season. They started the party off wrong by firing Mike Brown 5 games into the season without already having Phil locked down. So they had to hook up with the chick at the club that boyz always see but never holler at because she was a 5 at best and you could really wait and holler at her in the parking lot after you strike out with all the bad chicks.
Mike D’Antoni was 388-339 which was a .533 winning percentage when they hired him. Now the Lakers are 10th in the Western Conference which is 2 spots out of even making the playoffs. On Tuesday general manager Mitch Kupchak announced that the Lakers WILL NOT trade Buster Brown on or before the February 21st deadline.
Now I don’t know where these duns have been for the last year and a half when ole dull Dwight played Orlando like a fiddle only to bounce anyway. It’s like committing to the broad that has a serious reputation of playing the field because she promised you that you were the one. The crazy thing about it, Dwight isn’t saying a word so he‘s like the chick with a "TERRIBLE" rep in the streets that won‘t kiss because she says that it‘s too personal!
On July 1st he has the option of packing his bags and bouncing with no strings attached. So why would the Lakers as an organization take the chance of letting him walk and getting nothing for him? Like I said before in my Bernie Mac Playas Club voice, "Notin!, Notin!" It’s Cleveland and LeBron all over again pimpin'. Now I’m not mad at the player for keeping his options open and doing what’s best for him but the team has to protect themselves too. You saw how Cleveland got left at the alter didn’t you? For less money I might add!
So why give Dwight all of the power when you already suck as a team and Kobe’s only got another year or two left if you're lucky because he's already frustrated. Why put the franchise into a cats hands that is gonna burn you for sure? It’s LA playa! Showtime! The Lakers! It’s Hollywood homie! Who wouldn’t want to play for an organization that has won 16 titles which is the 2nd most in NBA history behind Boston? He'll be the king of a city full of celebrities and he's sitting in the cut? No way! You gotta cut 'em loose now or pay dearly for years to come!
It's like the dun that's dating the finest and richest chick in the country and she's settin' it out baring no expense to make him happy. However, he's unsure that he wants to commit long term! Instead, he'll pull a Jermaine Dupri and run down to the hood spot and get a stripper pregnant. There's something wrong with him bruh and she refuses to see it but Big Momma's been saying it for years.
Not only is it LA but the Lakers can offer Dwight the biggest contract out of all the possible suitors this summer. Those that will be looking to snag him are Atlanta, Houston and Dallas. They can only offer him roughly 4 years at $88 million and the Lakers are sitting on 5 years, $118 million to throw his way! So you do the math pimpin’! It’s LA, $30 million more and this dun is hee hawing around? You gotta trade him because he’s gonna screw you in the end.
Let's say you trade Pau, Kobe retires and Buster Brown walks. You're left with Metta World Peace and the Five Heart Beats and oh yeah, 147 year old Steve Nash.
We’ve already seen this movie before! When this cat walks you’ll be even worse off than before. Then how do you explain that one to Big Momma? If Momma ain’t happy nobody is. I can hear ole Buster Brown pulling into the complex now bumpin' that Ice Cube, "No Vaseline." In my Huggy Low Down voice, "Waaait for it!"
Holla At Ya Boy!
