Welcome to the blog of B Daht Obama! I've taken a new approach to MY blogs - I write letters to people. Hopefully one day some of the people can actually read the letters I write. If you have an idea of a letter you'd like me to write to someone (they don't HAVE to be in Sports) send it to theescore@yahoo. Hope you enjoy, and comments are STRONGLY encouraged!
If LeBron James Could Read This:

Wow. Thatâ€™s how you do? No handshake, no head nod, no â€śgood luck in the Finals Olympic teammateâ€ť, no â€śrepresent the East wellâ€ť? Nothing?! You just put on your headphones and leave the building? WTF?
You donâ€™t think MJ had to face the media when he lost to Detroit in 6 in 89; what about in 7 the next year? Did Kobe speak to the media after losing to the Celtics in 6? You donâ€™t think he was upset? You think he WANTED to be asked how he lost, why he lost, and blah, blah, blah? Had Kobe pulled that stunt heâ€™d STILL be getting crucified.
And for you to use an excuse:
â€śItâ€™s hard for me to congratulate someone after you just lose to them. Iâ€™m a winner. Itâ€™s not being a poor sport or anything like that. If somebody beats you up, youâ€™re not going to congratulate them. That doesnâ€™t make sense to me.â€ť
Thatâ€™s the most ridiculous foolishness Iâ€™ve ever heard.
CLEARLY youâ€™re not a winner, but an Eastern Conference Finals loser; in 6. It most definitely IS being a poor sport. If you get beat up, in contest, AS a competitor you show respect when youâ€™ve been beat up all over the basketball court. When boxers get knocked unconscious, they get the smelling salt, wake the hell up, and shake the manâ€™s hand that put them to sleep. You shouldâ€™ve shaken the hand that put you to sleep, or hugged his massive shoulders.
The reality of the situation is, you were embarrassed Baby Bron. Awww. Weâ€™ve all been there. I remember coming back from a school trip in 3rd grade; I pooped my pants and had to blame it on other people the whole way back to school. Pretty embarrassing; guess you kind of pooped your pants too huh? Difference is the whole world saw your stains.
The Magic were just better LeBron. Beat yaâ€™ll 5 straight times in Orlando, and beat snot out of you and your â€śteamâ€ť in 6 in the Eastern Conference Finals; to walk off the court without speaking is Bad Form Baby Bron.
We watched you throw chalk in the air before EVERY game, we watched you take faux pictures with your teammates when blowing out Detroit, Atlanta, and all other games en route to 66 wins. We watched the MVP Puppets, we watched you accept your MVP award, we watched you shoot half court shots in practice and games alike. Weâ€™ve had to stomach ALL the LeBron theyâ€™ve shoved down our throats â€“ pause â€“ now we get to throw it up.
Now go home and watch DISNEYWORLD vs. DISNEYLAND like the rest of the world.
Your brother in Christ,
