Video: Mos Def Freestyle in Chicago

Not sure if he’s ever spit this verse before. Below are some photos that TimeOutChicago got of what fans claim was not MF DOOM from that same show on Saturday night.

    Haven’t followed the NBA since ‘01. I win.
    ^^^

    nah dont front, you lost

    hardly. I grew up with Dream Team one and two types of players. What’s that mean, you say? Just like rap, the NBA was a hell of alot better in the prior two decades than it has been for the last. Today’s game has zero fundamentals. Plus the rules have continually tweeked to bastardize the “sport” ever more. Besides, somebody needs to tell these kids that tattoos do not equal talent. And please, for the love of God, don’t get me started on LeBron disgusting existence in the league.

    Son, stop acting like jordan wasn’t a created superstar who refs allways swallow n/h their whistle for. Don’t get me wrong I like the nba in the 90’s better than I do know cause my knicks was actually good back then. But u missed out on a lot if u never seen lebron or kobe in his prime

    Haven’t followed isn’t the same as flat out not seeing something. Needless to say, I haven’t payed any attention to Durant. I’d given up on pro basketball before he came into the picture. As far as LBJ goes, how can anybody not notice that train wreck? I mean, i have been living on earth for the past couple of years. Seriously though, sitting through an entire game is excrutiating. It’s like watching professional junior varsity squads or some shit. Nobody can hit free throws anymore for christ’s sakes!

    Jordan earned his. YouTube some highlight reels for further proof. LeBron was given “the pass” before he even set foot onto an NBA court, whereas Jordan not only earned his pass – he practically invented it. I’ll be the first to admit that LeBron is a ridiculously athletically gifted human speciman. Other than that. . . he still has some accomplishments to . . . accomplish.

    When a collection of weathered has-beens can unite to completely dominate the entire league, a la Boston, then you know the game is damaged. But, yeah you’re right. I don’t really pay attention like that anymore so views are a little skewed.

    Suddenly, I feel the need to retract a previous statement.

    I have not been immersed in everything NBA related for the past decade like I was the decade prior. I used to actually sit through entire regular season games. Now I just catch sportcenter once or twice a week and try to watch a couple of finals games.

    Moment of clarity pause

    or maybe I’m just getting old and simply don’t have the spare time to devote to a sport that I once cherished (deep breath), soooo out of the resentment that grows from my frustration with maturity I actually revert back to my immature ways and wrongly justify my absence from NBA fanhood on “the league not being what it used to”.

    Kobe is jordan with fewer rings but will have the same amount by the time he retires. People say kobe is selfish well so was jordan. Jordan never made any of his teammates better. Pippen wouldve avg 25 points on any other team. Who did jordan make better? Kerr, amstrong, lol. And we all saw jordan push russell to hit that game winner in the finals.

    ^3 massive statement failures in a row.

    Had to do a double take and make sure my bifocals weren’t upside down.

    Bricktop Says:

    February 14th, 2010 at 9:31 am
    The only person to get rings with AND without Jordan is Rodman, though several of Jordans teamates definitely tried. That kind of means that Jordan had some sort of positive influence on the guys around him. This next statement is gonna suck b/c I feel he was arguably the greatest #2 (whoa!) (as in option, not position) ever, buuuutt Pippen did play for another team – a fairly decent team mind you – but he just couldn’t make the magic happen without his ace (no Gary).

    I’m just sayin. . .

    Bricktop Says:

    February 14th, 2010 at 9:35 am
    And here’s the kicker: no matter what they accomplish, Kobe and LeBron will always be compared to the great one. There’s really nothing they can do to step out of his shadow. Jordan, on the other hand, doesn’t have that problem.

    The problem with the nba is that its too predictable. You know who will be the last 4 teams in the conference finals before the season even starts. I just hate when people say the nba is the thug league and that’s why they don’t watch. The nfl has more criminals than the nba but they don’t call it the thug league. Well will never see another iverson dude was coperate thugging for real

    The NBA probably wont reduce the number of games because of the amount of money that not only they make but ESPN and other TV networks. NBA broadband is a big money maker as well because some people want to watch every game everyday. There’s too much money to be made. They need all the story lines and drama plus the statistical aspect of the game too. Another reason they wont reduce the game amount is because of the cyclical nature of the sports world. As one ends another begins as to continue the great distraction.

    As far as all-star weekend…they could throw horse in there however that could take a long time to complete. Dunking is limited. It all depends on the athlete hence Lebron always being begged to compete. Anything else is probably going to be shot down because of injury concerns. With that being said we just have to keep it moving.

    The league needs to find a way to enforce fundamentals and basics. Not saying go overboard, but some type of balance is needed. It’s like everybody wants to be like Mike – even benchwarmers. But there’s s reason that there was only one Mike. The league has shifted too far in this direction. And yes, I blame Jordan’s success. He filled seats like no one before. Can’t blame the league for catering towards this type of business model – bottom line, right? Kind of like the way the NFL cateres to QB’s. Anyhow, balance in roundball is needed. As much as it kills me to say it, an emphasis needs to be put on the way the 90’s era Jazz and Spurs played (and I’ll throw Duke in there for good measure). I really feel that if this were to happen, then the overall quality of gameplay would evolve and increase dramatically. Just my opinion.

    Nobody wants to watch either of those teams play Basketball…. and if it is such an improvement Karl Malone and Johns Stockton would have a ring ….. Go watch the all white league they’re making LoL

    ^hey jitbag, you totally missed the point. Trust me, I despised watching those teams more than anybody else. But whereas that style of play is one extreme, today’s version of basketball is the absolute other extreme. When things lean too much towards either extreme, the overall quality of the game suffers. Thus, balance is needed.
