When I was in elementary school, I was in a play.
I don’t remember much about this play; not the other people in it, not the teacher who directed it, not my lines…shoot, not even my character’s name.
I only remember 2 things:
1- An adult being really impressed by how I acted like I had lost my mind on cue when it was my moment to shine;
And 2- the actions that led to that compliment:
Me jumping up n down and running around the stage after the other character in the scene said the 8 magic words:
“The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”
Yep. We were acting out the story of “Chicken Little” back then, and apparently the sports world and my fellow Los Angeles Laker fans want me to re-enact my stellar performance from back in the day.
The Lebron James-led Lakers have started off The Kaing’s tenure in LA with a 3 game losing streak.
“Oh. My. God. Becky.
Look at this record. It is. So. Bad.”
Now don’t get it twisted. I’d like to see a 1, 2 or a 3 in the first column just like everybody else.
But I’m really gonna need y’all to CHILL.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and there’s no such thing as a microwavable title contender.
Bumps and bruises, trials and tribulations (and apparently, fights and suspensions); this is how things start. Let me remind you that this is a project. A 4 year project. Without a guarantee.
Remember that Miami Heat 4 year project?
Those people started out around .500 in the first quarter of the first season.
End result? 2 titles.
Not saying this is that. But sheesh. 3 games in and people are standing on the 405 Freeway ready to end it all.
In the words of Aaron Rodgers, R-E-L-A-X.
You’re gonna give yourself a whole medical condition internalizing the infant stages of a brand new relationship.
