From the second
You started shooting this season
After you had no interest in meeting us
or making an attempt to recruit expertise
We knew one factor was actual:
It’s essential go. Instantly.
Nothing towards your legacy
Nothing towards you as an individual
You simply make it in order that we will not win basketball video games
Subsequently our jobs are meaningless.
We have been six yr olds too
Dreaming of profitable basketball video games
Not being a part of a better-paid Washington Generals.
We have performed by way of your airballs and turnovers
We have handed you the ball figuring out you’d miss
Not as a result of we needed to
However as a result of YOU stored shouting for the ball
Barking “I received it! I am Kobe Bryant!”
We did that for YOU
Additionally as a result of if we did not, we’d get fired.
You made us all need to play basketball
and we’ll all the time love you for that
However, Christ, you said yourself that you aren’t a good basketball player
This season will be garbage because of you
Our followers can take one other dangerous season
The franchise will proceed to earn money
However OUR CAREERS are depending on having good stats, notably
+/- scores, and also you chucking photographs, not passing the ball, and blowing
video games makes it unimaginable for us to barter future contracts.
And that is NOT OK
You have to let go.
You have so much money.
And a few of us wont have jobs after this season.
And we each know, it doesn’t matter what we are saying
You will play out the rest of this season
And take 20 minutes waving to the gang after capturing Three-45
Or, God forbid, being on the courtroom throughout crunch time
Ball in your palms
5 … four … Three … 2 … 1
