I met a white dude a few weeks ago while i was at Tiltled Kilt who played sports when he was in college back in the 60s. He ran track and field for Rutgers and after college he got a job working for the Celtics. He said Red Auerbach would call the black players niggers and say some racist ass shit. I Googled the dude too to make sure it was legit and he was legit.
Yes he is. If Yoa can get in based off of a billion chinks voting him to the all star games and never accomplishing shit in the playoffs, then yes T Mac deserves it. At one point it was Kobe and TMac 1a and 1b. The nigga has more all star appearance and averaged more points, assists and rebounds than joe Dumars. He was just not on a great team to get a title.
I honestly don't know how i feel about LL. I get he has classic albums and records, but skill wise has he ever really been great. I think he is an example of a good songwriter, but mediocre rapper like how Drake is. He doesn't excel lyrically in any aspect (worldplay, double entendre's, etc), flow isn't all time great like a G Rap, etc. I'll give LL stage presence, one of the goats.
I think his biggest problem is he became formulaic with the female songs and alienated hiphop heads.
