Road trips in NBA are nothing like they used to be.
ESPN’s Tom Haberstroh recently took a deep dive into how NBA players’ party lives have changed dramatically since the late ’70s and ’80s, when drinking and drug-using was at an all-time high.
“Tin-der-i-za-tion,” he repeated to Haberstroh, “like the dating app. No need to go to the clubs all night anymore.”
The changing NBA culture has completely altered the home-court advantage. Haberstroh noted that back in the 1987-88 season, home teams won a staggering 67.9 percent of their games, winning by an average of 5.8 points, the highest ever.
By 1996-97, home teams won only 57.5 percent of games, winning by an average of just 2.6 points. After home winning percentage neared 60 percent in the 2000s, it has dropped to an all-time low of 57.4 percent this season.
In Drake’s song “Pound Cake” he has a lyric, “Tables turn, bridges burn, you live and learn” which is eerily similar to Lamar’s opener. Using Drake’s lyrics against him is what Lamar has done with his previous shots in the past.
Jumped sides is obviously referring to Durant leaving to his rival, but in terms of Lamar and Drake it likely refers to Drake switching up the sound of his music. Instead of rap, Drake’s latest projects have featured more dancehall sounds.
Your team refers to Durant’s Warriors, and also Drake’s Pittsburgh Penguins Cheap Jerseys Warriors. Drake constantly raps about both Durant and hanging out with the Warriors, so it’s Oakland Raiders Cheap Jerseys not a stretch to see this connection.
In addition with the previous lyric, Lamar is referring to the success of Drake’s overall OVO team compared to Lamar’s Top Dawg Entertainment. While Drake’s team achieves more commercial success, Lamar is saying one-on-one, Drake wouldn’t stand a chance with him.
