Freddie Gibbs is a rapper from Gary, Indiana. He's hardly received much mainstream attention, but around the hip-hop Internet world (there's no such thing as "underground" with the world wide web in existence), he gained a lot of notoriety for "National Anthem," (NSFW language warning), the first single off his "Str8 Killa" EP released last August (I'm a bigger fan of "The Ghetto," but to each their own; This is going somewhere somewhat relevant, I promise).â†µ
So, Gibbs, like a lot of people, likes sports, and often posts his thoughts about it on Twitter. Rap Radar noticed and now has him writing those thoughts down in a weekly column. His most recent effort featured his response to Mike D'Antoni calling out Rajon Rondo (told ya it would come around):
Unless you coach the team to play defense you'll never win against grown men in the NBA. Mike criticized Rondo this week, saying that he wonders how good he would be if he played in Minnesota. Newsflash Mike: The best thing going in Minnesota is Adrian Peterson and he ain't suiting up for the T'Wolves.â†µ
Put Carmelo on that team and it'll be the Nuggets all over again. No disrespect to Kevin Love, it ain't your fault you got drafted to such a horrible team with such vicious winters. D'Antoni win a playoff game this year before you talk shit about an NBA Champion point guard, I mean he does have one more ring than you do.â†µ
