Lil’ Wayne’s Take On LeBron’s Decision

Wayne’s take on LeBron’s decision and the upcoming season. As usual, some pretty insightful stuff from Weezy:

Oh Lebron! The recent move by the Miami Heat confirms that we will someday soon have that good ole basketball back with all due respect to the Lakers-Celtics 7 game series. This move reminds me of the days when it was Johnson, Worthy, and Jabbar vs. Bird, Parrish, and McHale, or Thomas, Dumars, and Lambeer. Well now we have Bryant, Gasol, Bynum, and Pierce, Allen, Garnett, and ultimately, Wade, Bosh, and James! Do expect this to become “protocol” to win an NBA title. As for many more teams have and will be stacking their rosters with stars.

I believe that this Miami team will be explosive as intended. Anything less than an NBA championship title will be uncivilized. 72-10 anybody?. Well with Wade at the 1 and Lebron at the 2 or vice versa even, or Mario Chalmers at the 1, Wade at the 2, and Bron at the 3… Wow! Not to mention that I didn’t mention Bosh, who can live at the 4 or 5. Zone defense will be a must against this team. That’s 3 players on the court that commands a double team. Just imagine those guys on a fast break, the defender back peadaling… Wade can take it to the hole or throw it up and you know Bron. Bron is going to get it… or dish it back to a trailing Chris Bosh who will definitely finish at the rim… again, wow! Or how about Wade at the 3-point line, Bosh setting the pick, and Lebron in the passing lane. And if you collapse on them, don’t forget that Chalmers can knock down the shot. I bet that they lead the league in alley-oops. And they’re all young! Scary! Hey, what if Pat Riley returns to the sidelines and it ends up being the Lakers vs. Heat in the finals? Riley vs. Jackson! Epic! Gasol on Bosh, Ron-Ron on Bron-Bron, and Kobe on Wade… wow!

Also, beware of the Bulls. Boozer will fit in well because they’re similar to Utah in many ways. A nice guard surrounded by the shooters. With the addiction of Korrer and Rose should be able to shine brighter. The Bulls led the league in the rebounds last season and I’m sure they will again with Boozer and Noah.

Boston is the team of bad knees! With J. O’neal joining the squad, it adds another big man but his knees are always questionable. So is Garnett’s and now Perkins. But still expect them to do well in the east.

The Knicks are injury prone as well. Not only are their spirits injured from not getting The King, but Amare’s an injury threat as well as Turiaf and Randolph. If they can stay healthy, then expect Amare and Randolph to be beasts in the paint. Raymond Felton is no Steve Nash but he’s a solid point guard. He should do well with Stoudemire. I’m not sure about Orlando in the east this upcoming season. I mean Duhon isn’t exactly a good move but it has potential.

As for the West, Minnesota is stacked now with Beasley, Jefferson, Love, and Milicic. Golden State looks good with Curry and Lee. Though I’m not sure if we can expect Lee to brab all these boards in the west. Too many big men. As for the east is full of guards.

I can’t wait to see how teams stack up next season when those other big name players hit the market. Maybe Melo and Tony Parker to the Knicks? Or Chris Paul and Derrin Williams to the Lakers? They’re gonna have to do something! Good ole basketball.

The Tricks of the Trade.

    (When sober) Wayne is very engaging and a very well spoken, intelectual person. His few semesters @ Univ of Houston payed off…

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    “With the addiction of Korrer and Rose should be able to shine brighter”. WTF? I guess dude would know a thing or two about addictions.

  • Kundai

    Im surprised weeezy such a fan. Im a heat fan but wouldnt it be something if the lakers added a d- will and paul and melo team up. gosh its like christmas

  • chingy

    “As for the West, Minnesota is stacked now with Beasley, Jefferson, Love, and Milicic.”

    Really? Funny how Minny is the first team he mentioned; and no more big Al.

  • http://screwjams.tumblr.com cramzy

    I was shocked he talked about Minnesota as well but I kinda agree with him. Kahn’s moves look crazy but they have potential to work out really. A lot of potential on that team

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    Yeah, chingy… there’s some errors, but they’re worth a laugh.

  • Fat Lever

    It only took jail for Weezy to sound like a coherent and semi-intelligent person.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Speaking of “The Decision”, you guys remember that Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd spoof on the ESPYS? Well, the president of Chili’s saw marketing gold when he watched it – http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ball_dont_lie/post/LeBron-James-decision-ignites-casual-dining-res;_ylt=Av1GOjp8mJxXrGOOojCGvJy8vLYF?urn=nba,257109

    And it just keeps going, and going….

  • The Wize

    Freudian slip with “addiction” hahaha

  • ciroqobama

    Weezy’s “rebirth” album made my ears bleed. Garbage.

  • Bryan

    Does he actually think Minnesota is stacked or was that sarcasm? And he actually doesnt think the Magic will be that good its the same team as last year with minor adjustments. Also he sucks as a rapper. His only good stuff was what he made back in the day

  • c_cantrell

    stop hatin..
    weezy is a bigger fan than i would have thought

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    Did he really mentioned Minnesota as the stacked team of the West? Chris Paul and Deron Williams together on the Lakers? Addition (addiction) of Rose? I think my head just got mindblasted.

  • Yesse

    Like i really wanna hear the opinion of some of the worst artists in the music industry.

  • JTaylor21

    Clowns are so quick to say that someone sucks. Bryan you probably suck a at your job working the grave yard shift at a cemetery. Dude actually knows whats he’s talking about when it comes to sports, so props lilweezyana.

  • slamfan4life

    Chicago is going to be ILL next year

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Somebody put a few extra codeine pills in his syrup….

  • T-Money

    Lots of negative energy in the comments section lately.

  • http://slamonline.com Tzvi Twersky

    @T-Money: Agreed. I don’t get it. Why all the hate?

  • http://www.slamonline.com/online/category/blogs/farmer-jones/ Ryan Jones

    I just like the idea of a guy in prison commenting on anyone else’s decision making.

  • http://aspov.blogspot.com Cheryl

    LOL at all y’all!

  • Darius (Eastern Michigan’s Future)

    I knew Wayne was a sports fan but i didnt know that he was knowledgeable to this point. It’s nice to hear a real opinion, not just “The Heat Will be Good.” I love yall @ slam, keep doin the good work

  • http://www.clownpenis.com Tarzan Cooper

    I cant wait to see derrin williams on the lakers, and minnesota is stacked wow! Haha. Jtaylor, u have always made sense until then. Im disappointed. And betcats, u are aware its a syrup right? Not pills, tho there are hydrocodone pills, not the same. Drank is great, theres red, orange, yellow, and most known, purple. Yellow is the best. wheres my styrofoam cup and sprite?!

    Who is Korrer???

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    I thought Kyle Korver was a house-hold name by now..

  • unrel

    weezy’s a fan like all of us.. big deal.. you guys are all keyboard analysts..

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Derrin Williams?? Somebody get this man a encyclopedia,asap.

  • riggs

    its like that joke dave chappelle said about mtv asking jarule what he thought about the 9/11 bombings….like people actually cared what he thought.

  • riggs

    and by 9/11 bombings i mean plane attacks……let us never forget.

  • http://www.twitter.com/JoshElam JE

    I’d fault him for not knowing that Al Jefferson got traded to Utah for a bag of chex mix, but it’s pretty impressive that he’s as up to date as he is being in the slammer.

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Sorry to contribute to the hate, but I’d be more interested in the thoughts of Matisyahu..

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    I’m not a fan of Lil’ Wayne at all, but what he wrote was harmless, and actually fun to read. So..

  • Jose

    Lil Wayne has spoken!….

    and yes riggs….. Never Forget

  • Holiday

    Wow, terrible just terrible can’t spell and seems like he only see’s sportcenter and never watch’s games! Oh and “Deron” Williams and Chris Paul on the same teams, who needs to pay two of the top PG’s in the league, what kind of chemistry would there be? Man I’m glad T.I. and Eminem came back to put you to rest!

  • Holiday

    And how do you “brab” a board? Somebody get this guy some Hooked on Phonics!

  • hoodsnake

    I think he meant the way the TWolves frontline (minus Al of course) compliments each other. And his music is irritating

  • c_cantrell

    man y the hate? wat harm did he do to u? do u get paid to freakin analyze other ppls sh*t.. man give it a break

  • Jordan

    I’m a Wayne fan…interesting point about the alley-oops…there’s something to that…

  • http://www.clownpenis.com Tarzan Cooper

    Yes, let us never forget…..who profited and who lost…..And what really happened. They scrambled on payne stewart plane immediately. But in 01, jets werent sent to intercept. Plus tons of other items. Uss maine, burning of reichstag, gulf of tonkin.

  • chingy

    Definitely not hating. I’m slightly surprised Wayne follows the NBA this closely. Some of his assessment, tho, quite funny.

  • buccetz714

    Im miss you lil wayne

    sincerely his cellmate

  • ab_40

    who is this derrin williams? I wanna know more about that guy. And I didn’t know that minnesota has a player named jefferson on it’s roster?

    Going for the 4th ring like it was his first
    Gotta get the bling
    Do it for Kareem!
    Two-four so nice, my flow so mean

    Or just drive in the lane and dunk on dunkers
    You know where it’s going, it’s going down yo
    This is the Lakeshow, but don’t drown though
    I call him King Bryant, now let the crown show

    [Lil' Wayne]
    Pass me the damn ball
    I don’t need a pick at all
    And don’t worry ’bout my shot
    ‘Cause I’ma get that off
    Yea, I drops 40 on your double team
    Then I drop 81 on another team
    Yeah, you better guard me with caution
    And watch I work ‘em like an auction
    No such thing as exhaustion
    No time for resting
    ‘Cause I don’t take breaks
    I just break records
    And I prefer the ball with 3 seconds
    And I bet we gon’ win it all in 3 seconds
    Ya dig? That is a guarantee
    And please tell your defense
    Don’t ever man to man with me
    Double team, triple team
    Your defenders sick of me
    But, I never let ‘em get to me
    Step back and give ‘em a three
    Ain’t no defending me

    [Reporter talking]
    One guy certainly envious of the way Bryant’s playing lately
    LeBron James

    [LeBron James talking]
    I’ve been recorded saying that
    He’s definitely the best player in our league
    Um, to me, in my eyes
    The best scorer in our league
    And there’s not another guy in our league
    That can accomplish some of the things
    That he’s doing

    [Lil' Wayne]
    Never take a day off
    Catch you at the top of the key
    And get a J off
    Baseline facetime
    Tongue out like two-three
    Even two-three gotta love how I do me
    Practice while you sleep
    Practice in my sleep
    Straight outta high school
    Tha brackets ain’t for me
    I will be jumping over you
    Like I got a mattress at my feet
    And all the Phil Jackson teams
    Better be passing it to me
    I put the master in the beast
    Attack you like a beast
    I am starving for victory
    And that means I’ma eat
    And when they ask you who’s the best
    Then the answer should be me

    [Lil' Wayne]
    Call me Mr. Clutch or Mr. Automatic
    I can post ‘em up, or Lamar go get the alley
    I’m going for the ring
    I’m going for the ring
    I went to Beijing
    And came back with the bling
    Who they want? They want Kobe
    And what he want? He want the trophy
    The victory
    And the glory
    No Shaq
    No Robert Horry
    Now break ‘em off, Kobe break ‘em off
    You better be where that Laker don’t
    Yea, just give him the ball and he take it off
    Or he properly dishing it to Gasol
    Or give it to D-Fish on the wing, yeah
    Or just let lil’ Ariza do his thing, yeah
    ‘Cause I’m great, and so is my team, yeah

    Do it for Magic
    It’s your time baby
    I see nothing wrong with doing it four times baby
    I’m the best yes
    And he the best yeah
    Don’t worry LeBron – get ‘em next year
    Now what’s defense,
    To an assassin?
    Killer instinct
    Murder the basket
    Then steal the ball back
    Hold it for ransom
    It’s more than a game
    This is a passion
    Been a all-star, been a champion
    Free throw line, you hear ‘em chanting
    MVP, MVP
    Kobe Bryant aka Envy Me
    In knee deep, smash any D
    Whoever he is he can’t guard me
    He can’t guard me

    I hate the miami feat now.

  • Str8in It Out

    is it hate to to point fingers and laugh at all the mistakes in his opinion piece? i thought that was what the comments section was all about. and the piece about the alley oops…wow. poignant stuff. it never occurred to me that wade or bron could catch alley oops. but when wayne mentioned it, something just clicked and i thought “yeah!”…and then it seemed obvious. thanks wayne. sarcasm off

  • ciroqobama

    Lil Wayne should be hated on all day every day- please listen to some real hip hop people… You guys probably think Diddy makes good music too.

  • http://twitter.com/darrellma dma

    Diddy brought us acts like Yung Joc and Danity Kane. Of course he makes good music. Anytime you can be named Yung Joc you’re BAD BOY FOR LIFE. lil wayne could piss for 60 minutes and he’d still be respected as a great lyricist. why? i have no idea.

    Weezy – STOP HATING on the Knick-ers. That is a weak emotion, the lady of a Knick-er.
