A legendary name, but his game must change;
His fantastic skillset, no longer a shock
Tiresome counter-attacks, can’t hide his range.
Father Time has spoken, says hands on his clock.
Instead of evolving with all new tactics,
He keeps shooting bricks with his same old antics.
Throughout his prime, his shots landed with a swish,
Living on by word of mouth is now his wish.
