    So proud of Mike three years ago
    Said he was letting the NBA go
    New challenges await me
    I've done it all
    Going out on top
    Won't slip, won't fall

    Said he's gonna be a real dad
    Spend time with his boys
    Drive the mini van
    Got enough money
    He was going to be a family man

    Bullshyt
    Mike just another "Can't do nothing else jock"
    Ego needs to be fed
    Hungry for too long
    Tracy, Kobe, Allen
    Young boys getting too much light
    Number 23
    Needing to get back in flight

    Got to have the applause
    Got to have folks pulling on his jock
    Gonna save the game
    For the love of the game
    You disappoint me Mike
    What a ******** crock

    What about your boys
    All the time you said you'd spend with them
    That was bullshyt when you said it
    Like you'd have time
    Being a GM

    Ali. Sugar Ray, Willie Mays
    Just to name a few
    Hanging on too long
    Not knowing what else to do

    Yeah you probably still got game
    But ball is like life
    Nothing stays the same
    Young players can't wait to bust your ***
    Snickering at every missed shot
    Every turnover
    Every errant pass

    Think of your boys
    They don't need your money
    They need your time
    Sorry Mike
    You've gone down a peg or two
    Is this what you really need to do?

    Feeling how much all this means to you ~ and I know how compelled you were to write this....

    We have no control over current events...and we certainly have no control over our strong need to express ourselves concerning them.

    Speak, Poet. Tell it like it is; I hear you.
