Snoop Dogg, aka Tha Doggfather, aka Snoop Doggy Dogg is without doubt one of the best MCs and one of many coolest dudes to ever stroll the earth.
And I used to be prepared to place up with an limitless string of mediocre albums and shameless product endorsement. I even watched Doggy Fizzle Televizzle.
However this I can not abide. (Warning: language NSFW).
I perceive that this has been an enraging season for Lakers followers. However Snoop I’m afraid has fallen too deep into LeBron stanhood to see that the primary factor that has gone unsuitable with the Lakers this 12 months is LeBron James.
For one factor, LeBron bought injured. That’s not his fault, however it does usually occur to gamers after they attain their “re-appearing hairline” years. He has missed 18 video games this 12 months, and the impact has been devastating. Because it all the time is with LeBron’s groups, the Lakers identification orbits totally round James. With out him, the premise of the workforce collapses.
In order that has been a significant blow. However it’s the sort of factor you just about know goes to occur with a 34-year-old athlete.
This downside is compounded by the truth that LeBron is enjoying terribly. Each night time there’s a brand new video of him standing in the midst of nowhere whereas his man shoots an open three, inbounding the ball off his personal backboard, having actually to be shoved by a teammate simply to shut out on a shooter.
Yeah, LeBron continues to be adequate to place up numbers. You’re all the time going to have the ability to take a look at Lakers stats and conclude LeBron is carrying the workforce. However he has nuked any sense of workforce or identification the Lakers ever hoped to have this season. He botched every part about Anthony Davis and the commerce deadline, and in spite of everything that he’s criticizing teammates for not being 100 p.c targeted on basketball. In the meantime he’s bought a chat present on HBO, he’s A&R for a 2 Chainz album, a number of documentaries and who is aware of what else.
It’s true that the Lakers want higher gamers. Snoop is true about that. However he might actually assist the Lakers by sitting down LeBron and explaining a few of these issues to him, earlier than guys like Anthony Davis begin doing the mathematics and deciding that enjoying with LeBron isn’t value it.
