Fellow Lakers fans you can miss me with that, “we never wanted Paul George anyway” mess. Losing out on him last summer was even worse than losing Julius Randle this free agency, like All Star (J.R. for next year) D’Angelo Russell the one before. Sure we got the best player in the league in the mid-thirties LeBron James but even a G.O.A.T. needs a sidekick to shepherd. So much so the Magic of this Kings la la land wanted to cast a spell that would have exiled the whole future of Hollywood in an Academy’s worth of promising talent, to roll out the red carpet for one big man in Anthony Davis who has all but vowed to come to the Lakers next year as a free agent anyway.
But the last person to say that was hometown hero Paul George. But after being introduced by Nas this Summer on a cook-out hosted by a certain Russell Westbrook that barbequed the Lakers big night before, it showed us in this business words aren’t bond when there’s a new brotherhood that’s much more strong. But as some LeBronland band-wagon roller fans were too busy polishing King James’ crown, they failed to see that they had to look to the clouds if they wanted to see the full-court forecast of a better chance of reign, when it comes to watching the throne in this game of them.
And with all due respect to the King…and Prince. Purple reign ain’t got nothing on the Thunder right now.
But in the city of stars they can’t see for their singing in the movie musical world umbrellas they dance a round like finding a decent buyout bargain from the current March 1st deadline market.
Forget ‘Space Jam 2’ the real ‘Monstas’ are in Oklahoma.
First off there’s the dynamite dynamo of Russell Westbrook. The epic, most exciting player in the whole association for better or worse. Why not? Shawn Kemp in guard form for the small ball revolution and the franchise that used to be the Supersonics (save Seattle like Sue Bird’s Storm if you want to talk about reign). A UCLA grad they wanted in Hollywoodland, but still no stranger to breaking Oscar records like Robertson’s triple doubles every, single night. A player as Most Valuable and still so underrated as they come.
Just like the new Robin to his Batman, now Victor Oladipo joins Kevin Durant and James Harden in the big-three what could have beens. The best superstar sidekick, more than that moniker since Scottie Pippen having the back of another and the ultimate Jordan Brand. Right now Paul George is in a big-three horse race for MVP alongside the Beard and the Alphabet of Giannis Antetokounmpo. With the new Big Game King James streak of 30 looking to only wilt when it passes Chamberlain, the reigning Maurice Poldoff holder looks to reclaim this as much as the only team standing in his way of the championship, the Golden State Warriors look to do with Larry O’Brien. But our dollars and sense are on the Greek Freak like betting most 1 through 15’s can’t spell his name right. He should get it just for shooting practice jumpers whilst Ja Rule was still performing at the halftime of 90’s night this weekend. Fyre! “Are you with me? I said Are you with meeeeeeeee?”
I guess not!
But even so Paul George and his pure digits of a 38.9 average these last four weeks are the most valuable of the month forget just calling it ‘Western Conference Player of the Month’ this week. And shooting like Clipse at the horn this guy’s a killer in the clutch like the Lakers Horry. The kind of player the purple needs right now to see gold instead of clutching at trade bit straws. This weekend when D’Angelo Russell on the low was showing out with 40 on his 23rd, another Lake Show one time, what could have been showed he was no has been. Even after critically coming back from a should of been career crippling injury that made Gordon Hayward’s foot revolution look like “tis but a scratch”. Silencing the Jazz at the buzzer like that boy to Boston in a O.T. O.T.T. game that was called like when Michael Jackson put on some Halloween makeup one night and got in the booth with music man Quincy Jones for the best selling album of all-time. And this all-star like them for the record has been serving up numbers this last week like this weekends all star is born Hollywood Oscar hopefuls have been serving up looks on the red carpet.
So roll it out because the former underrated great like Mahershala Ali in this game is rolling with his gunning on the road like rifling through ‘Green Book’ page after page. And when Paul comes back to the former Ford Center home to refuel it doesn’t even look like George’s speedometer is running out a gas.
Siphon that. Because by George, Paul is here ’till the wheels fall off.
And with all due respect to Carmelo Anthony like the rest of the league should give him (hello again Lake Show. We’re looking in your direction. Don’t make the same mistakes. Or the same problems of Houston), who needs an OK3 big-three when you have these two? A dynamite duo as dynamic like the best since Shaq and Kobe, or Jordan and Pip. S### they still have a more than O.K. big three with most underrated big-men Kiwi Steven Adams (or how about Schröeder, Grant’s son or dunking Diallo? Pick your poison). Make ‘Aquaman’ an All Star like he is a Hollywood one already. Numbers don’t lie and everyone in this city is putting up the truth. Paul George may have missed you with that Hollywood gloss and may have two first names as regular as my day job (but the name of two Beatles so ‘Let It Be’ as legendary as that), but he ain’t quiting like I shouldn’t mine. There is nothing regular about his game Joe. And that’s why this P.G. leading like a Point Guard’s name belongs in the brightest of association lights.
P.G.-13 not suitable for all. Please! You’d love this grown player to accompany your National Basketball boys.
A Harden way 32 at least average since you were running around doing your last minute Christmas shopping. A running like Valentine’s as the train departs arch teardrop with nothing but 0.8 to go in the desert, that was all water this big weekend. Leaving more than those in Utah with no dry eyes at they departed the Delta.
You’re talking to a Laker fan who wanted Los Angeles son Paul George to come home so bad he tweeted about buying his best in the association Nike sneakers when he was still Pacing in Indiana colors like a troll.
Isn’t that tampering ‘Team Giannis’ (and how about his best in the All Star showcase in Charlotte 360 for Antetokounmpo’s squad?)?
Magic to Kimmel wink.
Lakers cut Cousins for Hollywood Morris vs Morris twin brothers story
Pelican and Wildcat pack connected with Laker superstar Anthony Davis and veteran legend point Rajon Rondo, when the Lakers copped Sacramento Kings great DeMarcus Cousins this off-season it was meant to be their strongest Summer signing. Reuniting D.C. with A.D. after their N.O. year this was just a campaign after Cousins related to a Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, Golden State Warriors superteam that only last season, after the arrival of the big-man — fans around the league were calling not playing fair.
Because Boogie down low was the best center in the league, reminded us of an explosive TNT hybrid of Shaq and Chuck. But his post power productions have been crippled by injury even if he ill-advised but all heart tried to redemption return for his former Warriors’ team in the losing finals against the Raptors.
Now out of California again, even though he is no longer a Warrior, like K.D. you can always dub DeMarcus as one.
Meanwhile, whilst Lakers fans were celebrating Cousins arrival with caution once they knew he still needed time to recover, the Lakers brought back to bewilderment the infamous name of Dwight Howard. It looked laughable and ludicrous to bring back the former Mickey Mouse superstar even on a non-guaranteed contract. Especially when there were other former All Stars and future Hall of Famers on the market (Carmelo Cough Anthony).
It looked like chemistry cancer. But it was as natural as biology. And then so many rebounds, blocks, dunks, one contest and guaranteed contract later and the redemption reunion was set for a season that took everyone by surprise. The epic, emphatic energy Hollywood needed way back when flipped the script, as changing his legacy number 39 dunked all over the legend of 12 with his signature smile.
Just when the Lakers thought their dynamic Wilt and West, Magic and Kareem, Shaq and Kobe following dynamic duo of the beard and the brow of LeBron James and Anthony Davis had a big-three like Miami in DeMarcus Cousins, it actually turned out that the Lakers had a big-three Ghidora like post blocking and dunking monster of Davis, Dwight and of course all-time fan favourite, JaVale McGee. But still fans thought that once D.C. came back to Cali’s capital, another head would grow. But now the Lakers have cut it off like a broken leg in the Wild West wilderness this Winter.
The Lakers have waived DeMarcus Cousins before he ever played a single game or before he got the chance to show that he’s still got it like that. But trust he still will as another team will pick him up (if only it was the Lakers next season as DeMarcus talked about how much he liked this brotherhood 1 through 15 before sharing on Instagram his “tough times don’t last. Tough people do” tattoo following the cut). Forget a Howard’s end in redemption, there’s about to be a revenge reunion. Especially if a rival picks him up in these mind games.
Because the Lakers have just played one whilst hopefully not playing themselves. Cousins could have been that Rasheed Wallace like Pistons’ signing after the trade deadline that could have guaranteed them a chip (and do we remember who that Detroit Bad Boys reboot team beat in the finals that season? I will give you a clue. Even adding the Mailman and Glove of Karl Malone and Gary Payton wasn’t enough). Although rumour has it with him rehabbing at the Lakers facility for the rest of the year (this isn’t the first time the Lakes have made a classy move like this. See, Xavier Henry), after this sacrifice he may re-sign with the Lakers this Summer anyway. But now however the Lakers’ have brought in another former Piston to hopefully fuel their assembly line.
After missing out on ‘Melo and Andre Iguodala the Lakers didn’t want to make the same mistake for one of the best on the buyout, even if they have just added the realest to the free agent pool to get him. The hustle and heart of Markieff Morris is exactly the true grit this Hollywood team needs for the playoffs that they have been missing since they didn’t re-up Tyson Chandler.
Bolstering the Caruso and cook-ed up bench and backing-up and giving more three space for Kyle Kuzma. But what’s more like the dreads and headband, Spider-Man pointing match-up of Harkless and Jae Crowder, the Lakers now have a Morris vs Morris brother Hollywood story perfect for their script ending that should see the Battle for Los Angeles Western Conference Finals closing chapter with the Clippers that much more compelling.
Now the L.A. King one-two punches of James and Davis versus Kawhi Leonard and Paul George have more in reserve for Markieff and Marcus matching-up with twin ambition. And it’s going to make for some epic entertainment come playoff time that we can preview at the start of April for the California clash rescheduled after the tragic death of Kobe and GiGi Bryant. And what’s more Marcus says the brothers after playing together for years are going to live in the same house in Los Angeles. That should make for some awkward dinners after we see who is eating come June.
The Lakers have just gained another brother. But in this Fast and Furious league when it’s all about family, don’t forget about your cousins.
Wade In The Rafters. The Heat Rises To 3
How’s this for a Flashpoint in NBA history?
Tonight the Miami Heat gave us ‘The Flashback’. DeLorean riding back to the future of last season. Were Dwyane Wade rocking a red Heat hot bomber jacket that was all “Great Scott” Marty McFly had his number three jersey under all that retired, as the Heat rose his 3 to the rafters in a flash.
After ‘One Last Dance’ for Dwyane last season were he swapped jerseys like trading cards, Wade and his former coach and President Pat Riley watched his last jersey go up past the nosebleeds to the ceilings he smashed, arm in arm like a proud father watching a home video of his sons wedding on the highlights of the jumbotron.
The relationship is exactly like that. Built on a fatherly foundation.
Miami has had a matrimony with Wade from the Chicago towns own All Star start, championship run on his own and then post Bulls and King reunion return to redemption.
Some may say Shaq. 90’s purists Zo Mourning and Timmy Hardaway. Others the greatest of all-time LeBron James forming like voltron with another Heatle that’s about to have his jersey retired, Chris Bosh. But let’s face it when it comes to Miami Heat players and franchise faces, D-Wade is the G.O.A.T.
Legacy. Legacy. L3gacy.
This is the way of Wade. How its been and how it will always been up in the air of those American Airlines. A father first and always part of the Miami family when the South Beach welcomed him like Will Smith, this guy is for life like Bad Boys and the number 3 that Martin Lawrence’s Marcus has framed in his own living room rafter raise for the latest sequel.
What you gonna do?
This was a Florida city union like pink or turquoise neon, or the ’till death do us part loyalty of ‘Bad Boys II’ and ‘LA Finest’ spin-off star Gabrielle Union. The port of Miami Rick Ross rocked the mic and even King James sent a video tribute from his Californian Lakerland as fellow retired club legends Chris Bosh and Ray Allen were in awe attendance.
“Life is good” Wade said like Nas for this two hour special that seemed ready made for an ESPN documentary. 30 for 30 or 3 for 3.
3 in ’03 to infinity for his sweet 16. The sun will never go down on the legendary legacy of Miami’s adopted son.
And in a tragic start to 2020, like Chi guy Wade embracing an emotional Allen Iverson in a Kobe number 8 tribute throwback this moment was the answer to the pain from our prayers.
Now all that is left is one last step to the Hall.
