Cheers To Lou...

If you’re reading this too Drake… there’s no 6 Man like Lou Will.

How sweet a sixth he is.

Last year Lou was put in All Star consideration off the pine. This calendar as of last night, blowing out the storied Boston Celtics he’s just boxed Charlotte Hornet legend and Steph and Seth with the shot pop, Dell Curry’s, all-time history record for most points ever off the bench.

Talk about a buzz.

Talk about making a splash brother.

No bench player has every varnished the hardwood as good as Louis Williams.

He used to be the north. So much so Toronto Raptors team owner Drake rapped about him with CN Tower like perspective views courtside. He began his career in Philly with everything at stake with Sixers storybook Allen, rhyming with Iverson at his side rap hustle. But his true bars kicked game with a whole other type of balling. It turns out after Bubba Chuck, Sweet Lou was the answer to everyone team and crowds spark plug. This writer once came up with a Top 60 Microwave Players of All-Time countdown. To which the swag of P, Nick Young at the reverse top spot sixty responded on Twitter quotation with the word, “weak”. But come to think of it I may have literally come up with this list in a minute in-between microwaving meals as I may have missed out L-Will, even if back then he may have started more.

Now THAT is weak Nick.

Oh how I and anyone else doubting would be proved so, so wrong. Catching one of Kobe’s last games at STAPLES against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder in his last season I saw live this purple reign come to an end as Lou Williams poured in a Jerry West 44 points off the shooting shirt and ripped off sweatpants. Your favourite bench player doesn’t ball like this. And now crosstown, court and arena with the Clippers. Cleaning up like brushing all the hair in barbershops where he’s the talk of the cut. This L.A. king of the pine time primetime is making the Lakers and everyone else pay like the furious defensive passion of Patrick Beverly and his man to man maze and what soon we will all see even more with the post career of the young big, Ivica Zubac for your draft picks you chose not to nurture.

Like Stephen A. Smith of all people got right. Soon if you compare the West Coast and East big cities of Los Angeles and New York, the Clippers will be the Yankees and the Lakers the Mets.

Strike one.

This guy gets buckets like leaking roofs. And just like that precipitation this time of year, he’s all water. Newsflash that stuff is wet. It may not be new news here, but it’s nothing fake. This consumate teammate and player and contributor is as real as it gets. And when he makes history like this it’s all for the record that will never forget, even if our timelines day to day do.

Strike two.

Lou eclipsed Dell’s old like a PC record of 11,147 points off the pine in this new world, smartphone social reacting age with his 34 points. That he recorded in just a Michael Jordan 23 minutes of burn as he torch turned into a flame thrower, human torch, rolling like a cannonball run. As the Clippers of all names, beat the Celtics of all franchises, 140-115.

Strike two.

Forget just Sixth Man of the Year, you don’t think this guy’s the bench G.O.A.T.?

You’re out of here.

Swish.

6 God.

The King’s Garden Bites Forbidden Fruit In The Big Apple

LeBlocked James...

Super Mario smashed ‘Bron.

On a Sunday afternoon in New York’s Madison Square Garden this St Patrick’s Day (side note: Nike need to bring back those great green Paddy’s Day NBA uniforms), the Lakers where in their East Coast equivalent big city to pay a visit to the Knickerbockers Mecca.

M.S.G. usually plays host to the greatest games from the G.O.A.T.’s over the generations out the service elevator. M.J. Kobe. And now L.A.L. legend to be L.B.J. against the N.Y.K. And LeBron James didn’t disappoint with a Kareem 33 points off devastating dunks off rampaging runs down the floor of the World’s Most Famous Arena like a raging bull. Shouting “AND ONE” on foul calls that even people with bleeding noses sitting up in the Gods could hear (and how about a couple plays before an equally as loud Caurso yelping for the lay-up as hilariously as his “what’s up man, I’m Alex” Ringer soundbite spoof? But 5 steals and 3 blocks to go with that many rebounds plus add that up “AND ONE” for 12 points in the game? Never send him down to the G again). That was until he took the final shot at the horn that blared in his face.

It’s been that kind of season for the King by royal appointment. Anthony Davis and potentially missing the playoffs and all that.

Heavy is the head in this Game of Thrones.

Like Jordan vs Kobe, the Knicks came away with the 124-123 win. And in the clutch, the King going for the games crown slipped as he ended up looking as good as one of his free throws. Driving the lane and taking it to the rack before being denied by the Knicks Mario Hezonja. Who with this big block became the Knicks new right hand man.

Off Broadway the King tried to Kong his way up the Empire State but this time the Bi-Planes normally swatted away shot him down.

‘Bron isn’t the only one who makes clutch blocks as big as a buzzer beating basket. Sometimes others hold it against him.

The Lakers 31-39 record is staring down elimination on the wrong side of .500. And with the game down the barrell L.B.J. went for the fadeaway like M.J. but couldn’t come up with ‘Space Jam’ too. As a matter of fact after a big game against the rotten 14-56 Knicks (on the free falling off the Chrysler wrong side of .500) where he also collected 8 rebounds almost on his way to a double/double, LeBron went fourth and colder in the final quarter than a text back from your significant other that just says “fine” when you ask if they’re ok and how their day was. With just four made baskets in the fourth period and the Lake Show missing their last six attempts it was all fat lady in Manhattan come the early evening afternoons end.

Right about now with most teams claiming their playoff berth, last year’s finalist and all the King’s men are just getting worse.

Even with a Garden state of mind in New York, New York, the King couldn’t keep his Empire going like Jussie Smollett.

Now there are only a few more notes before she sings again, but this time for the last time.

And that will be all she writes.

Time for Hollywood to hit the road and flip the script.

Every good movie ends with a twist.

The Lakers Couldn’t Randle The Truth

Published

on

Otc Randle
Who Got Shot Of J.R.?

45 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists.

I don’t mean to go on about this but DAMN!

A career high 45 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists.

That’s MVP numbers right there.

And that’s just the kind of king season Julius Randle is having.

I mean right now the Lakers should probably trade their whole roster for this New Orleans Pelican and not fellow Kentucky ‘cat Anthony Davis (who was out last night in the 122-110 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Probably with “load management”). But I know who most Lakers fans would love to trade him for just to get this guy back.

LeBron.

But after bringing the King to Hollywood this Summer, Magic and the Lake Show didn’t think they needed to match the restricted hustle and muscle of Randle, who they are sorely missing in their palette dry paint this season. Despite pleading from the coaching staff, President Johnson and his Hollywood agent of assistance let both Randle and big man from downtown Brook Lopez (who is really affording more with the Bucks alongside…Pau Gasol of all underrated and underappreciated Laker greats) walk. All because the thought the former Heat talents of Michael Beasley was enough on a team of McGee, Stephenson and Rondo vets behind the young core that really are now turning into a meme.

Remember this is the same Magic man who traded All-Star…ALL STAR D’Angelo Russell because he didn’t think he was a leader. As the purple and gold Lakers faithful now have no sleep watching him in Brooklyn as he LEADS the Nets.

This is the same Magic man who after offering his whole future to the Pelicans for a free agent to be with desires to come here for nothing (at least before all this drama and disloyalty really showed him something), will soon surely watch the legendary likes of Lonzo, Ingram and maybe even Kuzma and Josh Hart walk when they’re free to go, after the way they have treated them. Because like it’s been shown before time and time again in Laker history (I would name every example, but then I would be naming every other player not called Kobe), there is no price on loyalty. But there is one to pay when you treat these teammates like a commodity and not the individual assets that they are.

There’s only so long someone treated as bait will let you off the hook.

Magic Johnson may be the greatest player of all-time in my opinion. In some ways even more gifted than the other M.J. He could effect a whole game and result without even scoring a basket. But now he’s really playing. Effecting the whole team and franchise whilst trying to make a point. Just how long will he last running this s### show. Remember how long he lasted when he was actually a coach?

Exactly!

And he wants to fire Walton?!

Exactly!

And soon the likes of Ball and his boys will end up All Stars like Randle will too. The Lakers need to make sure that they do this in purple before the Lake Show turns into the ‘Lame Show’. As once the gold goes out the crown, the Lakers legacy will be down to the hands of more than one legend.

A legend they could have had in Russell and Randle. With guys like they have now and the ones they also shouldn’t have let go. Like Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Thomas Bryant and Ivica Zubac. Paul George would have been a better fit with all these core guys. But the Lakers didn’t even really need him either. With all due respect to the King and the next chapter in storied Lakers/Celtics history the NBA tried to build, both these iconic franchises and their great expectations have imploded this season. Ones of win big now or else, manifest destiny over pure personnel development. The real rivalry of the future would have been the lottery pick rebuilds of the old young Laker and the history making right now Philadelphia 76ers. Look at the stakes they have now. There’s a reason they call it a process.

Still the Lakers loss is the flying Pelicans gain. And even if they do lose Davis they have a big future in the big man Julius. And if New Orleans do end up taking half the Laker team for him, maybe along with Julius Randle it will all end up being the Basketball Gods master plan in the karma (it all goes around like a basketball spinning on your finger) of showing the Lakers what they could have had and won in the end.

How many stars of future fame will Magic’s Hollywood let walk?

45 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists.

Damn.

Sometimes you can’t handle the truth Jack.

And that is Julius Randle.

Believe that.
