LeBron, If You Nice Let Them Say You Nice. Don’t Puff Your Own Chest
Written by Danny P Ocean on June 15, 2015
After 5 games in the NBA Finals, a couple of things stand out for me.
A) LeBron is a cold muthafucka.
B) LeBron and all of his coldness can’t do shit with the Warriors if they are on.
And that is no slap against LeBron, once Love went down and the young Kyrie popped a knee-cap we all knew it was wrap. Even though LeBron and the Cleveland Slackers are putting up a valiant effort, it is only a matter of time. Similar to quicksand in the cartoons, you can go down fast or slow it don’t matter. Your ass is going down. Except unlike cartoons, there will be no superhero to save the Cavs. Kyrie Irving won’t come hobbling down the aisle with his Nike cape on to bail the Cavs out. No Kevin Love either. But should it really matter if they help out or not? LeBron James is the best player in the world and he should be able to work his magic to save his team, shouldn’t he?
After Game 5 LeBron had to let us all know how HE thinks he ranks in the world.
“I feel confident because I’m the best player in the world. It’s that simple.”
Is it that simple LeBron? I was taught that you let other people sing your greatness, you just go out and prove them right. For LeBron to make this declaration after being down 3-2 and on the brink of losing his 4th Finals, it reeks desperate. That shit stank don’t it? It almost sounds as if he is copping his pleas already, on some when we lose don’t look at me…. “I’m the coldest dude in the entire world, Earth, solar system, and in your modern day mortal dreams! I’m LeBron James bitch and welcome to my Finals!!”
Maybe this ego massage will be enough for his team to realize that they are rolling with the best and inspire them to get their acts together. Possibly LeBron will come out Tuesday and drop 60-22-19 and force a game 7. Or maybe the Warriors will put the dog to sleep and end it right there in Cleveland. If I was a betting man I would roll with Golden State wrapping this thing up and sending LeBron down the street with nothing more than possibly a Finals MVP to go along with his ego and the fact that he is the coldest cat in the world.
