|"Momma I don't know why he keeps messin' with me?"|
Well ole Kobe Bryant could learn a thing or two about how to handle people from all three of them. Y’all already know how I feel about the Black Mamba and if you didn’t let me say it again! He’s a straight up "Mark" because he violated the G Code years ago when he put Shaq on blast! Boyz wanna give him a pass because he’s won 5 NBA titles but he never would have won them without Phil’s ability to manage egos.
The Zen Master, as he’s been called, had the uncanny ability to keep major egos in check in order to avoid teams from imploding whether he was in Chicago or LA. Folks quickly forget that Mike was a fool too before Phil calmed him down. Remember, Jordan was constantly fighting with teammates literally and being thrown out of practice before Phil showed up on the west side of the Chi because he wanted more from his teammates but MJ didn’t know how to handle people.
Think about it playa, Phil kept Mike, Scottie and Rodman from killing each other. Especially Mike and Dennis because Rodman was a train wreck all of the time and he was able to keep that joint on the tracks without boyz all in the media talking crazy and throwing hands in the locker room.
Now that Phil isn’t in LA, Kobe is turning into Jordan pre 1989, the dun with great talent that couldn't win because he was a fool. On Thursday before they played the Celtics Kobe throws Buster Brown Dwight Howard completely under the bus by saying, “We don’t have time for Dwight’s shoulder to heal…We need some urgency.” Now did he say anything that wasn’t true? Not at all! However, you can’t say it publicly pimpin' because it ruins team chemistry! Then a couple days later he’s trying to act like boyz in the media are overreacting.
See if Dwight was a real G he would have body slammed Kobe already and then ole boy would know how to handle him. See a real cat isn’t gonna be toyed with regardless of how many rings the other guy has. I bet Kobe wouldn’t have called out duns like Charles Barkley, Kenyon Martin or my homeboy Glenn Robinson because he would have been playing with a swollen head and through one eye. Let him try that foolishness with Joakim Noah! That’s real talk!!
Let me give it to you where you can feel me playboy! If a dun pulls up in the ghetto pushin' a Phantom and gets out talking crazy to boyz because he's got more bread than anybody in the zip code. Will he get a pass because he's rich? Not at all! He'll get tore out of the frame and get his pockets emptied! So why do you think Kobe can talk crazy to a another grown man just because he's got 5 rings?
Kobe knows that he can talk crazy in the media about Buster Brown because he’s as soft as drug store cotton candy bruh! He obviously doesn't live by the G code which is, "I DEMAND respect because I don't hesitate to give it!" If I don't get it, in my Ray Gibson voice, "It's gone be some consequences and repercussions!"
Every time they stick a mic in his face he starts whining. “Well, they don’t know how much pain I’m in. He’s not a doctor. I’m gonna just leave it alone.”
Any time you’re a grown man and your old man has to come to your defense that’s a problem playboy! His dad told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that he was disappointed in the way Kobe came at his son and that D’Antoni didn’t do anything to stop or curtail it.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! If a cat steals your sneakers out of your locker at school and you gotta go get your dad to get ‘em back for you it’s a wrap for you bruh! You may as well put the "Kick Me Please" sign on your back. At some point you have to stand up for yourself and this dun is like a marsh mellow in that locker room and the biggest buster of them all, Kobe Bryant, is walking all over him.
Don’t try to act like you don’t remember when Kobe got caught up on the sexual assault charge and the night he was arrested he violated the G Code by throwing Shaq under the bus and ole boy wasn’t even in the state.
Now I don’t condone cats cheating on their wives but I was taught as a toddler by my own mother that nobody likes a tattletale! As we got older the slogan became, “Keep my name outcha mouth homie!” In the new millennium it has become, “Snitches gets stitches!” Once a boy shows you who they really are you can’t mess with him regardless of how many rings he’s got. That's why Shaq left him alone years ago! A mark is a mark is a mark! Do you really think Kobe would have won 5 rings without Phil playing in Denver? I'm just sayin'!
Holla At Ya Boy!
