With the crushing loss in this year’s NBA finals, it seems only fitting that the Cavaliers would go out immediately after and look to add another superstar like Paul George or Jimmy Butler. If they are going to be able to compete with them next year they are going to have to do exactly what they did and stack that lineup with as many threats as possible. Right now the Cavaliers are pretty lackluster in comparison to the Warriors when you see KD, Curry, Klay, Draymond, and Iggy I guess. So for them to add a threat, hopefully Butler rather than Paul George, would enable them to actually win more than one measly fucking game in the NBA finals. As good as Lebron is, and I believe he is one of the top 5 players to ever play the game already, he cannot carry a team in the league in today’s day and age. No one can. Curry has always had help. The Spurs are the Spurs. Dirk had help and as did Kobe. Its just the way it goes, and yes they have Kyrie Irving but Kevin Love is washed up and a wildly inconsistent shooter to consider one of your “Big 3”. So you’re left with JR who seems to show up when he wants to and I cant help but root for you regardless and Tristan Thompson. Thompson can be an absolute beast down low so as a big man I dont mind him at the 5. With all of these thoughts swirling I can’t stop myself from picturing the scoring frenzy that could occur with a starting lineup of; Kyrie Irving, JR Smith, Jimmy Butler, LeBron James, and Tristan Thompson…damn. Maybe over/under for round 4 in the 2018 NBA Finals of 280? 285? It could be very interesting to see how the Cavaliers make their trades but I know K Love is gone and a can’t help but hope the door hits him on the way out. Hopefully next they can work on not having fucking Deron Williams and Richard Jefferson out there in the 4th quarter of a game 5, win or go home game. Just a crazy fucking thought I had. This could be the super team that LeBron needs to finally win another title because as we all know and as he stated he’s never really played for a super team, not even in Miami! I know! I thought that was a superteam too but apparently not. Not even Cleveland was considered one. Now I hate the Warriors even more for inventing the damn super teams! But now King James can make a run and finally get back the title, there is hope in this world. I don’t know about you but I’m fired up to see what next for the NBA. -( . )
One of the biggest storylines in the last decade for basketball has been Lebron James. As a youngin coming in the league he had to do what he could to prove himself and now as a solidified legend in this game he goes for his 2nd title against the Warriors. This is Round 3, the big battle, and taking a backseat to this monstrous event was the NHL playoffs and the Stanley Cup. As a series of home wins, the Cup was fought back and forth and the Penguins were able to turn the Predators into their prey and take the ‘ship in 6 games. This makes it back to back Stanley Cup winning seasons for the Penguins which is exceptionally rare in hockey. So much it has only happened 4 times in the last 30 years. The Red Wings in ’97 & ’98, the Pens again in ’91 & ’92 and the Oilers in ’87 & ’88. Now oddly enough these years happen to also be years when the NBA champion has won back to back titles…interesting…
And to add fire to the ridiculously high flames of the whole ‘JORDAN VS BRON’ debate two of these back to back champions that coincided with the NHL were led by none other than the OG himself. IS this just destiny? fate? whatever you want to call it is is a very big coincidence and I am not putting anyting past the best player in the fucking league right now. Only 1 team in history has come back from a 3-1 deficit in the finals and only one team has ever given up a 3-1 lead to lose the finals and both are playing on the court tonight, just saying. Cavs in 7. -( . )
Billboard– Over the past week, Lil Yachty’s debut album Teenage Emotions has garnered a lot of attention. After blaming his A&R for allowing him to keep his cello line in “Peek A Boo”, the 19-year-old admitted to lying about the lyric during an interview with Hot 97. “No, I actually thought it was a woodwind instrument,” Yachty told the morning crew. The debacle stemmed from Twitter calling out the Yachty lyric — “My new b—h yellow/ she blow that d–k like a cello” — as the cello is a stringed instrument that can’t be, well, blown.
Yachty also addressed the slip-up during an interview with Genius last week. “OK, let’s stop for a second. Before you come at me, I’ma let you know. I’ma blame my A&R. Because he listened to that song many times and he allowed me to say that. I guess for a second I thought a cello was a woodwind instrument and it is not. And nobody ever said shit. … Nobody ever pulled up a pic and said, “Hey man. I don’t know if you know what this is, but it ain’t that.” … I f–ked up. I thought Squidward played the cello. He don’t. That’s a flute. I f–ked up.” (For the record: Squidward plays the clarinet.)
This dude is as real as it fuckin gets. He drops a line in his song about gettin blown like a cello thinking that the cello was a woodwind instrument. I’m admittedly on the Yachty Yacht right now cause I love what he’s pumping out and the vibes he throws out with just being happy and doing what he loves. So he didn’t know what a cello was, he’s not a fuckin music teacher, he’s a rapper and on top of that he openly owns not knowing what a cello is. Take me as I am he’s screaming, he’s not trying to front and make up some bullshit for the lyric because he is just young as hell and learning, along with everyone else, as he stumbles through life. One of his boys kinda dropped the ball maybe as they could have been like, “yo whats that line all about?” and then explained to him what a cello actually is but I can see his A&R just staying out of it and not wanting to question his artists work.
Props times a hundred for doubling down and dropping the Squidward reference. I am dying laughing trying to imagine myself watching Spongebob all those years and not knowing that Squidward is playing the flute. Thinking he’s playing a cello and taking that as a fact. Fuck maybe we should just change the name and make a cello the woodwind instrument formally known as the flute. Anything for Yatchy. Whatever man, this song has millions and millions of views and listens so who gives a fuck if he wasn’t completely literal with one of his lyrics, it wouldn’t be the first time in rap history. Still plays. -( . )
