Metaphor Blazer Class Style - Hypothetically :
Say you and your twin brother are entering the same year of grade school. You are the older wiser brother to the taller and more athletically gifted brother. You being Older and Wiser have been on the Honor Roll twice already while your brother is good at sports and P.E. But he is the ying to your yang. You need him to have your back and he needs you to be the older wiser brother to keep him in line. Your parents, while loving you both, show you how proud they are by giving you, for your achievements, a brand new Ipod Touch during the summer.
School comes around and your brother suddenly gets sick for a couple weeks right before the start of school. You're not sure if he is faking but he is hurt that your parents dont think he can make the honor roll like you and dont love him as much as they love you. They had offered him an Ipod Nano but he wanted the Touch and now was gonna show them up by making them and his teachers concerned about him.
This not only affects everyone around him, including those he plays with everyday after school because they miss him and it isnt the same without him, but it effects you. The Older Wiser brother. You begin to worry about him as well and it starts to affect your grades. He isnt himself and you want him to be happy and get things back the way they were with him having your back and you leading the way.
Everyone notices your not the same without him walking you to school and having him around. They are worried about him and want to make it all better. They go on craigslist and surprise him with a Ipod Touch 2nd generation used model on his sick bed. It isnt a new 3rd generation model but he is stoked that him and his brother can share music and games and not worry about who doesnt have an Ipod Touch.
Suddenly he is better. The days are brighter. The brothers are together again and everyone around them notices the extra spring in both their steps and happiness when around their playmates. You and your brother work as a team...you are brothers. On the way home from school that day, you turn to your brother and say..." See LaMarcus..I told you we could get them to fold to us." Both of you laugh. " Dont worry man...I never had a contusion and that story about me telling them I was afraid of the that painted area at school so I drifted away from it but with an Ipod Touch I wouldnt mind running through it to class and make that honor roll with you brother...It all worked Brandon. "
P.S. - I was at the game last night and Nate should have stood up for his players, no matter who is playing, and got T'ed up at least once if not thrown out to show them he had their back. The refering was ridiculous to say the least but if Nate isnt going to show his players he has their back then he wont get the respect of Andre Miller and other new comers and Roy will be forced to yell And 1 every time he penetrates the lane trying to get a call.
