The Book of Sacrifice (Chapter 27)

Hello America,

I am going to break my own rules and write a bit today.............

I am doing this during worktime, so if my employer asks........  I wasn't here. ;)

I saw the first quarter of the game.... I had no need to watch the rest... for the lessons that the Thunder were going to have to learn... I have a heart, I didn't have the strength to bear, so I worked on the paper.

Let me just say this....  as I did watch halftime.  Magic, JB, CB, it's all love, baby you get paid to say your truth, so do I.  You all not going to lose your jobs.

Michael B.  I saw the defiance in your eyes, I felt it in your tone...

You were right, the heat were playing like a team that knows it was supposed to win.

My question is love...........no disrespect........

Who in the hell told them?

I thought the score did........  but what are you supposed to think when you get call after call to get you to the finals, to get home court advantage back.......  You should start thinking something ;)

It ain't personal......

See the courts reminds me of the cut.... Folk that get appointed by a dude who hasn't ever put in work... regardless of whether the appointed does.........

Never that key ruby in their crown........

called respect of their peers.......

regardless of the rings they may wear.....

It ain't about you.

The only reason I wrote today Michael, ain't to brag, ain't to say all praises due Lebron.

Aint to say I won.  Holder in contempt, Rubio's VP aspirations is a crack dream, I gained about 200 followers, just running my mouth, got my work done and Romney know sees why I focused on the Midwest LAST YEAR..... to reduce Sarah Palin back to the factor she needs to be.........

That ain't the reason....

It is because of Russell Westbrooke and Kevin Durant and Kendrick Perkins....

It is because the choices of David Stern is on the verge of breaking a man's spirit.

Because when you do everything you supposed to do, when you follow the rules that your MOM AND DAD instilled in you, when you don't make rap entities who speak of selling keys but never get charged with things that result in pleas........., when you don't have baby mama's, when you strong enough to kiss your mama letting all potential wives know baby I am man enough to love in public.......

When you strong enough to stay, I am may be young, but I am going to be my own man because that's all I know how to be.  When you strong enough to be on the world's biggest stage one of them, and say... Baby, I rose to places............ you ain't meant to know exist...........

When you pour your heart out, and put your emotions in your alter ego.........and still up short.

and you called for bull, for another m*** to make it not because he earned it because other m***s outside of him decided we need him to sell our brands, we need him to cross market with Jay and Beyonce and things of that nature.........

David Harold Stern.......


It can break a young man, that can break a strong man, that can break an emotional man's spirit.

So you see, Michael B.  no need to take it personal........

not about you.

you report, the shenanigans that happen on the court.

the courts I play on, ain't televised, the ones this young team does are.

It is travesty and a shame of the black community and the American community that we shame Kevin for hugging his mama.  Mike Tyson may not have the boxer he was if he had some hugs, but damn may have been a lot better husband to wife #1 and his kids.........

It is a travesty and a  shame that when Kevin Durant did is earn his..  I see more pub and pictures of him down and hurting because he is realizing in his young age.  It ain't just five heat players on the court, its marketing of Jay... of the NBA... of Obama, don't think he won't find a way to put Treyvon Martin in the acceptance speech and reward the Heat for politicizing an issue, they had no business in.

It is a travesty and a shame, Kendrick gotta hang his head down and ask what else could we have done, and David ... you nor nobody else got the balls to tell him why but if the Heat win tonight, you will never tell them the "Man, I hurt, I've been waiting for this..., the draft don't work..."  Focusing on 3 and f****** the over 9 works sports illustrated DVD was already written two months ago.

You know Thunder, you can't see it right now but it wasn't no calls the other day, that won that game for the heat... You did.

Cole needs a job... he used you all as a chance to say Coach keep me on the roster.

Mario needs to keep his job.  he used you all as a chance to say Coach don't give him my spot.

Lebron needs to keep his job in Miami, he ain't built for the type of criticism that will come if he falls short.

But I simply ask you to do this Thunder.

You don't have to be Christian, I am not turning nobody into converts.

Just listen for a brief moment.

Yesterday, I found out another school, as I am in my second master's program, tells me one term from graduating, I don't have the aid to pay for my last class....

My ex-husband is having amnesia from all of the beatings, my food stamps mysteriously got cut off, I can't keep my mama from hitting me up for at least a G each month, I need to move, frankly men... just life.....

My feet having doing well, but yesterday my blood pressure was so up, hell, I can barely walk.

It seems like for every pound, I lose God allows the devil to put ten more worth of stress on my back.

It took me 37 years, to do what I did yesterday.


I didn't get mad....  I didn't yell and holla, frankly, I am tired of fighting with God, I never win... ;)

I didn't worry about what others were going to say or do, I didn't steer off course.

Me and my nephews read, we talked to Jesus (praying) they still babies.

And I watched the Rangers game with my mom.

#11 is a fiesty character... He got heart.  Yu Darvish, been going through a little... as all young great players do.

But you know what Russell, and Kevin...

He got better as the innings went on... You see my point.  You running out of gas just before your exit.

By the time of the 6th inning before the umpire even called the strike, he was already off the mound, literally jumped off the mound, because he relishes the delight in finishing....

He relishes the delight in hitting, which he shouldn't even be focused on.

Why?

He want Josh, Cruz, and Wash, Andrus to know he's the real deal.  He worth the money.

Russell and Kevin.....

you may not be able to take rings home....

But God and I refuse to let Miami take your dignity and your pride.....


Whatever happens tonight, don't mean s*** if you can't hold your head up and show the world, wasn't no fluke why we here, wasn't without reason, officials got the spirit of fairness in Game 4, if Mama D got to worry about her son's spirit of being simply a righteous man is broken, if we gotta worry about Russell spirit being broken, if we gotta worry about Kendrick spirit's being robbed of his fire.


Two men to pay attention tonight fellas.


Derek said all it takes is one play.


And Russell baby to focus on that one play, means to let the last go.  Baby boy, we all make mistakes (big hug, b/c you too damn too tall for me to kiss you on the head * big smile).


Do you understand?


We all make mistakes at times we think we can't afford to, but our brothers, our teammates, our God loves us this same because they know had you not played the game of your life, wouldn't be no close game at the end.


The path to be the point of the West with only Rondo on the East... to serve as comparison, aint without bumps.


Kevin D.


pay attention to Nick... hell Sergio and James to...


Nick don't give a d***, he rode and held his own with Bosh, why?


Not because he has the stats, Michael B. is going to break down.


Nah...


its because he's a fighter, he's that man that may be a 100 pounds soaking wet against the Goliath named we need the heat to win because we can't afford the marketing dollars to lose......, gets his ass whopped,  shrugs it off, wipes the blood of his mouth, and 


says...


in the Oklahoma way...


"that's all you got?"


tonight ain't no battle for ring.


Thunder Men,


its a battle for your souls....


You will not leave it in Miami,  you will find it here.


for its too many Nicks, and Scotts, and Maurices, and Kevins, and Russells, and
James, and T.S. and others 



that ain't going to be "chosen" and given crowns before the war ever starts from the Davids of the World......


and they gotta know when they down 3-1 in life... 


damn a game.


that when they hit the battlefield as our soldiers, hell as a citizen.


that whatever happens.... 


only thing that EVERYONE AND ANYONE CAN AGREE ON... IS


"The Fighter"
(feat. Ryan Tedder​)

[Bridge]
Until the referee rings the bell
Until both your eyes start to swell
Until the crowd goes home
What we gonna do ya'll?

[Chorus - Ryan Tedder]
Give em hell, turn their heads
Gonna live life 'til we're dead.
Give me scars, give me pain
Then they'll say to me, say to me, say to me
There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter
Here comes the fighter
That's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me,
This one's a fighter


Everybody put yo hands up
What we gonna do (hey!) [x4] y'all?
What we gonna do (hey!) [x3] y'all?

If you fall pick yourself up off the floor (get up)
And when your bones can't take no more (c'mon)
Just remember what you're here for
Cuz I know Imma damn sure

Give em hell, turn their heads
Gonna live life 'til we're dead.
Give me scars, give me pain
Then they'll say to me, say to me, say to me
There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter
Here comes the fighter
That's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me,
This one's a fighter

'Til the referee rings the bell
'Til both ya eyes start to swell
'Til the crowd goes home,
What we gonna do kid?




Until the clock stops, until the bell rings
You put in work on every play... so everytime, anyone thinks about tonight.
They know some fighters came and they took something that publicity, Pat Riley, ABC sports, NBA marketing can never EVER get for you....   
PRIDE, RESPECT AND DIGNITY.
I'll be back tomorrow
told you Gym Class Heroes... I would use it again ;) y'all thought I forgot
