After noticing Freddie Gibbs’ insightful and often humorous observations on sports through his Twitter account, Rap Radar decided to give him a forum to express his thoughts on the thrills of victory and the agonies of defeat. It’s Gangsta Gibbs Wide World Of Sports. The black Bill Simmons is here. And for his seventh column, Gibbs provides another NBA Playoff update. Better luck next year, Knickerbockers.
I’m tired of this first round shit so it’s time to show the bustaz the door and move on to what I call the real playoffs.
I remember when they expanded the playoffs to 16 teams in 1984 the first round was a best of 5 series. Meaning that you really had to play your ass off or get an early exit. But with dickheads like David Stern running the money-hungry National Basketball Association, you know they had to throw that extra game in to get more ticket money (and you thought they did it for the fans).
My BULLS had a chance to show the Pacers the door but we dropped the ball in game 4, making me the target of all sorts of Twitter rants by these wack-ass Pacer fans. Face it, Reggie will never come back, Bird will never coach y’all again, your team will never win shit, KYS.
LeBron had a chance to close the door on Philly but a 30-foot-shot by Lou Williams kept the Sixers alive for one more game. A shot that would’ve for sure landed him a spot on a D-League roster next season had he missed it.
It was great to see one of my favorite players, Brandon Roy come back from his injuries that plagued him all season and make some heroic shots to tie the series up with the Mavs. Dirk just can’t catch a break in the playoffs. I picked the Blazers to run they old asses out the gym anyway, sorry Jason Kidd.
Memphis is looking good against the Spurs and my nigga Z-Bo ballin’ out the gym to put them up 2-1. Let’s see if the Spurs experience will get them over the hump.
Chris Paul showed Kobe that he ain’t no bitch and the Hornets ain’t just about to lay down and let the Lakers use them as a doormat on the road to a 3peat. CP3 even fucked around and got a triple double puttin’ up Oscar Robertson playoff numbers. For all you young bucks, Oscar Robertson is the only man to average a triple double for the entire season.
The only team that got the broom so far was the Knicks. Even though I slammed him in my last column, I love Carmelo. I think he’s one of the most talented scorers in the game, and with Amar’e by his side they’re certainly gonna win some playoff games. But not this year, not without a solid point guard and maybe not with soft-ass Mike D’Antoni. Go back to the Euro league, bitch.
Unless you coach the team to play defense you’ll never win against grown men in the NBA. Mike criticized Rondo this week, saying that he wonders how good he would be if he played in Minnesota. Newsflash Mike: The best thing going in Minnesota is Adrian Peterson and he ain’t suiting up for the T’Wolves.
Put Carmelo on that team and it’ll be the Nuggets all over again. No disrespect to Kevin Love, it ain’t your fault you got drafted to such a horrible team with such vicious winters. D’Antoni win a playoff game this year before you talk shit about an NBA Champion point guard, I mean he does have one more ring than you do. I’m out this bitch, ’bout to watch Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook sweep Denver tonight before I do my show in Pittsburgh.
ESGN all day everyday.
