Karma?

Everybody in Atlanta, don’t be alarmed by the annoying sound you hear out your windows tonight. That’s just the Hawks heading to the arena for Game 3 in their fleet of Wahmbulances.

Apparently the fellas weren’t happy with the Cavs for pumping in 25 three-pointers on them in Game 2.

I get it. I’d be mad too. It was humiliating. But there’s being bent, and doing something about it. And then there’s being butt hurt and whining about it. Paul Millsap told Cleveland.com “It’s a certain way of being a professional. I’m not mad about it, but just being professionals’ man.”

Who wasn’t being professionals, man? The team that buried 25 three-pointers, or the team that LET them? Seems to me that being a professional is about doing your job and earning that check.

If anything the Hawks were the amateurs. And I love a guy saying “I’m not mad about it, BUT….” Sounds like Al Horford’s “not mad about it” either. “We probably wouldn’t do anything like that [if we were in that position].. It’s hard to say.”

No it’s easy to say. You guys would never do that. Because you would never BE in that position. Check the big swing forward Kent Bazemore took. This is my favorite response. “I’m a firm believer in karma. Maybe we’ll be the team to break that record soon.”

Yeah, and maybe I’ll throw down a windmill dunk from the free throw line, Baze.

The Hawks are going break that record? LOL Kent. The only record you hold is for most players to fall asleep on the bench in the middle of a playoff game. ONE. It’s you.

How the hell do you have an opinion on what happened in that game if you were asleep for half of it. Because THAT’s pretty professional. Baze- I know you missed it, so I’ll fill you in. Tyronn Lue pulled his starters off the court with 4 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter. Bron and Kyrie didn’t get that record. You let bench riders like Dahntay Jones and Mo Williams get that record.

And if you’re a firm believer in karma, you should at least know how it works. If you cry about something that’s your own fault, it will come back to bite you. You better hope Karma is BS, Baze. Because they got you’re for 25 threes, and karma is real- tonight they’re going to do you for 40.
