Soulja Boy Tell Em recently shared his thoughts on NBA superstar LeBron James making a ruckus over the summer by abandoning Cleveland Cavalier fans to join the Miami Heat.
Despite the blockbuster move, Soujla Boy said he was not shocked at Bron's decision.
"I like Kobe [Bryant]," Soulja Boy said in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. "My whole take on this is it's 2010, I've done seen it all because this sh*t is going down. I ain't really too much surprised to see anything anymore. This n*gga LeBron gotta Miami [Heat] jersey on. Like for real though, smiling harder than a motherf*cker. The only thing you can do to define that is it's 2010. Just like when I came out with the 'Superman,' n*ggas were like, 'What the f*ck is going on?,' it's 2007. Last year, Drake came out singing harder than a motherf*cker, n*ggas looking around like, it's 2009. Every year, something happens so I ain't surprised." (Radio Planet TV)
Producer 9th Wonder recently talked with SOHH and said James no longer has an excuse not to win an NBA championship with his Heat teammates.
"We could follow players back then because you weren't only following Magic but the Lakers' dynasty too," 9th added. "Now it's harder because everyone wants a dollar. With LeBron, I wish he would have stayed in Cleveland, I know it's kinda hard for him under the circumstances but I think it's a situation where he could have built a dynasty there. You've been there six years, Jordan was in Chicago for seven. They keep comparing him to that, that benchmark. Everybody wants him to make the noise and make the impact that he did but don't want to work hard like the way he got it. Now it's a situation where he's down in Miami and they can pull it off. Now if they 'don't' pull it off, if you go down there and you got Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, three big superstars down there, and you don't pull it off, there's something wrong. You have to win everything. There are no [excuses]." (SOHH)
Los Angeles Lakers fan Ice Cube believes James made a mistake joining the Heat.
"Kurupt is one of my favorite MC's. He's got complicated metaphors that's still gangsta," Cube wrote on Thursday (July 15). "15 minutes after he left the room in came Snoop. We talked about the Lakers kickin' the Celtics a** in the Finals. We laughed about LeBron joining The Heat. It won't work, Lakers are still the team to beat." (Ice Cube's Blog)
James made his long-awaited decision to join the Heat last month.
In the here and now, LeBron James probably did the best thing for himself. By joining Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami to form an NBA superpower squad, James, who announced Thursday night that he was bolting Cleveland via free agency, will more than likely win a championship -- or two or three -- sooner rather than later. And ultimately, that's what James so desperately wants after seven "failed" seasons with the Cavaliers. (ESPN)
