Sometimes it's hard find that proverbial silver lining, no?
I mean, like when it's Monday and your weekend flew by and it's Monday and you have a major event in your personal life that you're planning and it's stressing you out and it's Monday and you have a full ton of work to do and it's Monday and the Cavs finally evened the series with the Pacers to date but Friday's loss is still fresh in your ulcer...and it's still Monday. Sigh.
It took me a while but I finally thought of something pretty positive: I hate Draymond Green a little bit less than I did yesterday.
Don't get me wrong, I still hate him (most of the rest of the Golden State Warrior squad, too) but not as much as I hate my newfound nemesis: Lance Stephenson.
Stephenson, a shooting guard for the Indiana Pacers (and not all that an exceptional one, relatively speaking) has surpassed Green on my hate-o-meter. Not since the likes of Joakim Noah circa 2010 has a LeBron James wannabe been more of a total tool toward the King on his court.
Noah has literally faded from the NBA landscape but not before insulting James, the city of Cleveland, his former coach(es), the league and um, I think puppies and babies everywhere. #WhateverHappenedToJoakimNoah
Dude pretty much lashed out at and about anyone and anything in his path. I know he had some injuries but then he also had some suspensions for drug violations. The boy just seemed full of angst--or something-- just sayin'. #ThatsWhatHappensWhenYouHateOnEverybody
Anyway, Lance, I know it must be a real bugger having a brother with the same name as you and everything #HolidayChaos but stop all the crap already. You just hate him because you ain't him. Oh, and you never will be....anywhere NEAR to the greatness that is LeBron. #JamesIsKing
Let Noah be a cuationary tale to you, Sir Lancealot, back off LeBron. #ClevelandHatesYouBruh Either way, you are making Draymond Green seem quasi-human. I despise him at a much lesser rate than in the recent past. BAM! I found a little somethin' to smile about on a Monday.
Oh yeah, then there's the whole, being alive and well thing we've got going for us, too. #Blessed #LifeIsTheSilverLining
So, even though Lance Stephenson is really bad, life is good. Even on a Monday. #LetsGoCavs #WhateverItTakes
Jn 10:14 R. Alleluia, alleluia. I am the good shepherd, says the Lord; I know my sheep, and mine know me. Gospel Jn 10:1-10 Jesus said: "Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever does not enter a sheepfold through the gate but climbs over elsewhere is a thief and a robber. But whoever enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice, as he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has driven out all his own, he walks ahead of them, and the sheep follow him, because they recognize his voice...I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy; I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly."
