Social media is great.
I was in the middle of working in my usual spreadsheets and sipping on coffee on a typical Thursday morning when I saw this tweet scroll down my timeline on Tweetdeck:
If you do an NBA draft all-time,,, there’s no way LeBron is in the top 30
— Juicy Jr. (@Hananymous) December 19, 2013
It was by far one of the more absurd things I’ve read in a long time. I sat here and almost spit my coffee out while simultaneously laughing my ass off. I was in mid-tweet when I got hit up by Tinsley and was directed to listen to a new song that had just released by Rick Ross and Jay-Z.
So I clicked it.
(music begins playing…)
(the beat drops…)
Any concerns I had in regards to debating whether or not to debate that simpleton in regards to The King quickly vanished. I mean, yes, there is no way in the world LeBron isn’t in the top 30 all-time in the ranking of the greatest players in NBA history. However, there also isn’t any way that I won’t be listening to this song as least 30 more times today. Whoever made that beat just made themselves millions. It completely altered my day. Give it a spin and see if it doesn’t do the same for you. (Pssst, you didn’t get this from us, but here’s the download link too.)
