21 TIPS Part 12

“Repetition is the father of learning”

-Lil Wayne

It’s the finals baby. You bet there will be a round table discussion of what’s going on here. The Spurs are up one game and are on the verge of ending the Miami streak. I’m anxious to see if Lebron can get the Heat another ring. It will solidify more of the Jordan comparisons and it puts him in another range of greatness. Although Lebron with the juice on him, he is constantly observed and commented on in the basketball world. Fans. Sports writers. Opponents. The list continues but regardless of the outcome the opinions and comments are free. In the end it is time that will determine any kind of logic for who the true champion is.

Juice was one of my favorite movies when I was a little guy. Tupac was all young and he plays a character named Bishop. The movies is about this group of friends that plan to rob a store. Bishop is a maverick and during the stick up he shoots the store owner. Just to feel power he pulls the trigger and it all goes to his head. The title Juice is referring to this fearful atmosphere Bishop had created around his people and once he had ‘”the juice,” he felt like he was on top of the world. Fate is it taken or handed to you?

Basketball and hip-hop mix well and besides watching I do enjoy listening to famous rappers make their predictions about tonight’s game. And the man Lil’ Wayne shocked me with what he said. Besides who he said was going to win, he made a comment about the Spurs team that made me ponder about the way we view things. Regardless of the victory the team is an engine that is made up of many parts. How well that team works together is pretty much our judgment. But overall the players play the game and the coach is on the sideline. Each with a job. But with the availability of sports news and the truth we find that not all players and coaches respect each other. Someone disagrees with another a person and a sports reporter wants to vocalize an emotion through words about a moment for the world to grow opinions on. So we find out players and coaches don’t always get along.

Now the comment Wayne made was that the Spurs camp was one of the few teams in the league, where all the players got respect for their coach. And to bounce another idea of what Wezzy said is that there is an obvious amount of energy and trust among the whole squad. Including the coach even though he isn’t on the floor playing. The players on the court playing got respect for what that man thinks. That’s beautiful.

Wayne predicted that Heat would take the series in game 7. Which is the most heroic way to earn a ring. He does claim to be the best. So I’ll let this post rest.
