HOW SOCIAL MEDIA IS MAKING LEBRON’S SEASON EVEN MORE SAVAGE!

HOW SOCIAL MEDIA IS MAKING LEBRON’s SEASON EVEN MORE SAVAGE!

In this day and age legacy is formed just as much off the court as on the court.

Imagine if Jordan could’ve chronicled all of his pinnacle moments via social media, during his NBA reign. It would’ve made his status that much greater because we would’ve really felt like we was on that journey with him.

Now let’s turn our attention to Lebron and that’s exactly what it feels like is happening now.

This finally strike me on the head, when I seen Lebron’s post about time stamping his Zoom Soldier 11s as the “ejected game” 11s.

Since the beginning of the summer Lebron has taken us thru his journey of what he call his #SAVAGESEASON15. Through his displays of grit and godlike talent we’ve seen a Lebron that look like he’s out to accomplish something for the ages and nothing will go unaccounted for.

First you have Bron rocking out to Tee Grizzley’s first day out, which launched Lebron’s instastory being the stamp of approval for artists singles.

To relentless posting of his workouts, the inside jokes(Arthur fist meme), and to the now INFAMOUS, KING OF NEW YORK photo.

That Young Man Went to THE GARDEN [!!!!] and proclaimed himself as the KING OF NEW YORK!!

 Not to mention he called the active Chief of Staff a bum, who else does that?

 It is clear Lebron is substantially seperated from mankind in physical capabilities, but his active use of social media platforms (especially using them to combat injustice) makes the superstar feel that much more human, thus making him more connected to the people and his journey more intiment.

The king continues to strive for greatness, as we witness his attempt to capture his 4th ring in one of his most notorious seasons yet!

THE POWER OF STUPID

THE POWER OF STUPID

IMG_1769.JPG

Being in law school has been one of the most fun and challenging experiences of my life. All my life I’ve been deemed as a smart and intelligent person by myself and others. However as of late, I’ve never realized how refreshing it is to feel stupid.

Being surrounded by people much smarter than me made me realize how little I know. So many different backgrounds equipped with different experiences, these people have become possessed with knowledge I wouldn’t have attained on my own path.

Stupidity and ignorance are usually associated with negative connotations because these words make you think of fools set in their ways; unwilling to change and these words are said as if they’re the permanent state of the person that is being described with such words.

Being ignorant and willing to learn is probably the best position to be in, in order to ensue growth. Admittedly knowing nothing and actively seeking to acquire knowledge shows you’re more than ready to contribute to and absorb the world around you.

Ironically stupidity can only serve as a driving force for smart people. In accordance with the words of the Lovely Ms. Erykah Badu: “The man that knows something knows that he knows nothing at all”

WHAT IS KNOWN IS WHAT IS SHOWN

WHAT IS KNOWN IS WHAT IS SHOWN

Today was one of the first days I decided to "dress up" for class and the reactions were quite surprising. Everyone inquired on which occasion I was dressed for in which I promptly responded "life".

Then again I had to remember everyone don't know about my days of high school/undergrad in which, I dressed to the tee almost everyday. And today's situation made me realize people only know what you show.

For example, Kanye West may have the most misunderstood personality in existence. In the eyes of the public most people see arrogance,anger,unfiltered passion...qualities which may make someone very not personable.

But those who are closest to Ye always speak of his joking nature and often try to reassure the public , Ye is not as exaggerated as he seems.

Taken from Big Sean's verse on Kanye West's "See Me Now" 👉🏾 https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/my-beautiful-dark-twisted-fantasy/id403822142

However until a person see those said qualities for their self the only logical action that can follow is assumption.

So if you are seeking to be known/perceived as something else, then that something else is what you must make an effort to show. If you never show we'll never know!

SHORTCUTS ARE EARNED

SHORTCUTS ARE EARNED

My mantra of #ANTISHORTCUT, still stands, in terms of there is no easy way in achieving what you want. But as you move closer to your achievements, you'll find they'll be things you could do to make the process much easier.

Allow me to explain.

When I first started briefing cases for law school , I used to spend hours briefing one case! This is because I didn't know what I looking for in the material and I haven't spent enough time with.

Think of a first time driver. Their always extra cautious and tend to stick to preferred routes. But when there's someone experienced behind the wheel, they know places like the back of their hand and they can conduct an entire orchestra at the same time while driving.

Inexperience can't lead a person to taking alternatives (shortcuts). It's particularly the reason why taking shortcuts lead to failure because you haven't even put in the work to take one!

Recently KAWS(one of the most successful visual artists in the world) was posting old graffiti pics from the archives of his sketchbooks. It made me think of how those pictures are of much more valued now after seeing the level of success KAWS had reached.

Those postings started a shift in my mind and made me sure that I should keep my creations from earlier periods as they are sure to have more value over time.

Hearing a JAY Z record in 91 definitely fails in comparison to a JAY Z record of today. But think about hearing an unreleased JAY Z record from 91' in 2017? It's much more intriguing to engulf yourself in the growth and differences between The Old HOV and the new HOV.

People will always appreciate the journey, even if they don't appreciate it in the beginning. This is why they say the destination is the journey because when people finally learn of your journey they will be left in awe in how you evolved,grew, and achieved!

WHY WE LOVE HOODIE MELO

When one thinks of the name Carmelo Anthony what comes to mind? Nuggets, Knicks, Champion (nope not yet) but a recent change of attitude may be enough to make that word more synonymous with the veteran hooper.

When Melo was drafted in 03' we saw a young superstar who we knew was destined for a ring. He won the FINAL FOUR tournament in college and we just knew that competitiveness would transfer to the elite level. Yet it's hard to recall if Carmelo ever made it past the first round.

Even with promising rosters with the Nuggets and more recently the Knicks, Melo gave off a "I don't care I'm just here" attitude that wasn't taking him far, alongside off the court relationship drama, it wasn't looking too good. Then a change started to occur, people started to notice a different animal was released when a certain article of clothing was donned.

What we saw was the birth of Hoodie Melo. That's the nickname given to Melo after seeing him dominate and return to his competitive edge during off season runs of pickup basketball and training regimes.

Hoodie Melo transcends the literal fact of Melo wearing a hoodie, its about the attitude , the promising look of a winner, the hunger, that is what makes the Hoodie Melo persona so compelling.

Of course Melo will not be allowed to wear a hoodie while on the court so as silly it seems we are poised to ask ourselves "will Melo be the same without the hoodie"? Time will be our only determining factor but once the hunger for success sets in the only thing that can settle that appetite is more success!
