Unpopular Stances

19-chuck-klosterman-1.w529.h352I’ve noticed I tend to voice the opinion of whatever it is I’m reading so don’t be surprised if I contradict myself next week. While reading Klosterman’s “But What If We’re Wrong?: Thinking About the Present As If It Were the Past” he sort of confirms an idea that’s in my mind after losing a lot of money betting on sports. Whatever you think is going to happen is probably wrong. I’ll take this idea into a few stances that I have a feeling I’m in the minority.

 

 

untitled23I like Lebron James – I don’t understand where all the hate for Lebron comes from. He’s made the NBA Finals the past 6 straight years and has gotten in roughly 0 off the court trouble. He’s going to go down as one of the league’s best players with stats and even though his finals record isn’t as pristine as Jordan’s, he’s arguably been the best player in the league since he entered. He’s 11th on the NBA all-time points scored in a career and isn’t slowing down. The slights against him are “the decision”, which was 6 years ago for god sakes, and that he’s a crybaby and flopper. If you’ve watched any part of the NBA, every  single player is the latter. I hardly would say that I’m a HUGE Lebron fan but my like for him comes mostly from my next stance.

 

 

16mag-mouthguards-facebookJumboI Dislike Steph Curry & Hate Draymond Green – That mouth guard is the most unnecessary act with regard to functionality that it has to be done for attention. Can’t stand it. I respect Steph’s game like no other. His ability to knock down shots from anywhere on the court is amazing. It’s the smugness from him and the whole hoopla surrounding how revolutionary he is that gets me.  I don’t want to not like him but Klay Thompson is just so much cooler that he shows the appropriate way to behave. Plus, who else brings their kid to a press conference?

2GSVc72If I rate my dislike for Curry a 6, my dislike for Draymond Green is off the charts. I’m not sure why he isn’t getting more of a beating by the media (unless I’m not seeing it which is quite probable). It’s clear he’s a great player by the likes of last nights game in his absence. No one denies that. His dirty plays though are ABSURD. Like straight up bonkers. His play isn’t basketball. It’s the extreme opposite of flopping which people also go nuts over. See what I did there.

Look at how much a pussy Draymond is when LeBron gets in his face.

The Lowest of the Low (I think the first one isn’t that bad fwiw)

 

I like Donald Trump – I know this is dangerous but please read what I write before only reading the headline. Here’s a video of Trump protesters getting violent.

635793546682967201-54052938_3I don’t think that Donald Trump says appropriate comments or knows how to run a country. However, I do know that if people (and obviously this is a small sample size) are willing to attack people based on who they support, I’m against that, which in turn puts me pro people who are getting attacked.

Donald Trump is ludicrous. This comment about Obama after Orlando:
“We’re led by a man that either is, is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind. And the something else in mind, you know, people can’t believe it. People cannot — they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the ways he acts and can’t even mention the words radical Islamic terrorism. There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable.”

So Trump thinks Obama knows more than he lets on with regard to terrorism which seems radical in itself. However, weird shit happens behind the scenes and to turn a blind eye to potential hi jinks in the Whitehouse is equally naive. Hilary wouldn’t possibly take the stance that no new “Islams” should be allowed in the country, as Trump wants,  so she retorts with tighter gun control which is equally stupid because if someone wants to do what happened in Orlando, they will find a way gun control or not. Both sides are solving an insolvable problem to please the people.

2d675712f6e22f08471dd58a1056bb6aI’m not a Trump supporter but the more I see how people react and how “wrong” he must be, the more I’m leaning to the idea that he must be right. I also think you’re equally stupid if you don’t like someone because of their choice of political party. Read this sentence and know that you are a simpleton if you show hate towards another person’s opinion.
