NBA on TNT took a hit last night, these players are done with them now
I'm listening to Eddie Johnson on Sirius XM- NBA Channel and he's pretty much co-signing Shaq talkin' shyt just like an old vet would. And as he continues to talk it's plain as day.. the old heads are mad at the money these younger guys are making compared to what they made. That's it. That's the whole point of this. Its not even about where they're at or not at in their game play. Its all about the big contracts they're getting point blank
they then went on the rest of the episode to say how poor the play has been this year, and kept taking it further
Imagine if you was a pretty well known and successful accountant. And some older well known accountant in his day popped up and was like, I like how you be crunching the numbers but, you need to work on your amortization skills if you trying to be a legend
You’d be like You had your time, let me do my thing. If I needed an accountant mentor, I would reach out. And I do, Bob from finance
Shaq isn't hurting for money these days though
Who is this nikka that both Bron and KD are responding to him?
Bron is spot on...there is a clear difference between trying to motivate a guy or giving him tips and just shytting on him because you can and because you are envious. The reality is alot of fans are bitter and envious so it's not only acceptable for former players to demonstrate those qualities, but it actually enjoyable. That's why I stopped watching Inside. All these dudes do is bytch or be hypocrites.
Edit: And it's funny that he used a picture where Kobe asked Mike a question and Mike responded in a respectful way without attacking him. Mike didn't just walk up unsolicited and start spewing his "motivation".
I agree with Bron. It's never constructive criticism. It's stuff that's mostly emotional, and always when the young guys are doing something great.
Like when Oscar Robertson woke up one day and spoke out for the first time in forever just so he could shyt on Steph Curry during his 2016 season. Like, you really think the players now wouldn't adjust to the old days? You really think they wouldn't get used to the contact and adjust? And is that the only thing you can say when these players are showing insane skills that makes up for any rule changes (which are exaggerated).
You don't see NFL players shyt on modern guys nearly as much as NBA oldheads do.
The old heads also lack self-awareness. All the arguments they make ("the league is soft" "the players are ungrateful and earn a lot" "no defense") were usually all said about them.
At least Tim Duncan was constructive. He talked about the post game declining and unfair officiating. That's actually constructive. Not baiting someone on live television just to get a response.
I watched some of the show last night. Why shaq hating on gobert so hard? Did I miss something?
True but he's pocket watching though. Its obvious that he doesn't like these max and super max contracts players are getting.
2 best players taking notice of all the old heads hating. It all started when KD basically ignored Chuck in that interview earlier this season.
Donavon and the youngins are gonna follow that same energy too And I don't blame them at all
As Cam Newton once said..the cat is out of the hat in regards to this stuff
As soon as player hate/stannery became the best way to get attention it was always gonna lead here for Nba coverage.
imagine Brett Favre talking shyt about Josh Allen after a big game on some back in my day type shyt
Contract that Gobert got
Plus they don't like how players have taken control of their destiny . Requesting trades and leaving to team up with each other.
Damn shame these guys want the rich white owners to have all the power
Shout-out to Bron, he said fukk that
