JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …

JJBB copy copy copy copy
The more I think about Rick Ross rapping the more I’m convinced that it’s his way of thinking that is the biggest problem with elite basketball players.

Stay with me here.

Rick Ross is constantly trying to be someone else in his songs.

First, he’s MC Hammer then he’s Big Meech then Larry Hoover.

Sir, how about you be yourself.

This is what’s wrong with a lot of young ball players.

Every 6-foot-11 guy wants to also have guard skills and wants to shed the label of a paint lurking big man.

If more players would just embrace what they’re good at and perfect that role they’d be better off.

What really messes a big man up is when he hits a three-pointer or “gets” his man with a crossover.

The next game he’s a “utility” four, which is a fancy way of saying “get ready for rebound practice fellas; I’m firing away!”

What they don’t understand is that it’s the guys who embrace their strengths that have longevity in the NBA.

As you were.

WHAT I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF RIGHT NOW …

“Well, I like rap and country. I listen to both pretty equally. Those are the two things, I’d say.” – Rockwall (Rockwall, Texas) shooting guard Austin Grandstaff
