Smoove Gotti the buzzing rap artist from Cleveland, Ohio recently spoke out on Lebron James in a TigerHoods exclusive interview. Here is what he said:
TigerHoods: Do you feel Lebron left because he knew he couldn’t win unless he rode the coat tails of another player?
Smoove Gotti: I definitely do believe that. It’s sad because he is a great player but that’s why Kobe was always my favorite over Lebron. Kobe Is a proven winner. He rebuilt without Shaq and took wins and losses. You got to respect that. I use to root for Lebron vs. the Lakers but inside I knew Lebron had to develop that killer instinct that Kobe had and after some time I saw that it wasn’t happening. He probably saw it too. It was many rumors around our city that Delonte West was hitting his mom and he was upset that the Cavs coaches played Delonte in the playoffs. If you playing like a girl they got to play somebody who wants to play. The Heat lose last year because of Lebrons alleged Girl problems, leading into him having to propose to his baby mom, who everybody knows played him when she was here, plays him now, and that’s probably why he isn’t in Cleveland. I tell all my artist all the time control your hoes. It isn’t easy but you got to teach them to swim. I hate even talking of dude. He depicted an image of a soft. I'm telling the world that there isn’t a lot of soft dudes from Cleveland or Akron.
