Weezy writes more than Bill Simmons these days. And here he is makin more thoughts rain on the NBA (in Sports Guy mailbag style no less). This is his advice to guys like Kobe and LeBron being wooed by deep-pocketed international clubs:
if you get one of these big clubs overseas offering one of these guys $150 million for three years? Absolutely, take it. Hell, Kobe already speaks a trillion languages, so it wouldn’t be new for him. LeBron should really go ’cause he’s got so much time. He could spend three years over there and come back $150 million dollars richer. Who wouldn’t take that? Come, on. The NBA better get it together or else they’re going to lose some marquee players, and it’s going to hurt bad.
On his pick for Rookie of the Year:
I’m a Beasley fan. He’s straight up. He’s real. He plays with emotion and drive and physicality. He gets to where he needs to be on the court. And when he gets to his spot, if he’s not gonna shoot it in your face man, he’s gonna dunk it in your face. And if he’s not gonna dunk it in your face he’s gonna dish it to the next man. There’s not a player in the game like Michael Beasley.
On his boy Chris Duhon:
I love the move they made naming my hometown dude Chris Duhon the starting point guard over Stephon Marbury. He is like, the man at home, and I just want him to know I’m pulling for him. So shout out to Chris Duhon, you’re the man.
