Syracuse Orange fans got a special treat yesterday when noted basketball fan Kanye West decided to share some lessons on embracing the Orange. It might be a long time until next November, but you don’t often get free wisdom like this so you need to take heed.

Right here Kanye’s promoting the idea of the isolation offense because if you don’t have the ball in your hands, how can you create? Sure the shot clock might be running down and you might get double-teamed, but that’s when the real artistry happens.

This goes along with the previous advice. If there are too many players running around it’s a distraction. If you can’t ignore everything else besides Syracuse basketball, you are the enemy. Remember that next time you decide that something else is more important than an Orange game. Don’t be a #DisloyalIdiot

Well let’s see, two players and a top incoming recruit. I think we’ve got that one covered Ye. Let’s not push it with everything.

Real talk....we love this guy, but there’s still a bit of fear when you think about it right?

Stop worrying about the pick and roll. Make decisions based on love. The love of the zone, the color Orange, watching Georgetown lose. Don’t fear the future, the unknown transfers, the early NBA departures, or the occasional inexplicable loss. Open your Orange hearts to the possibilities in front of us and then we shall prosper.....and lastly,

You hear that Coach K. That’s why switching to a 2-3 zone didn’t lead you to a Final Four this year. Get some originality and stop swagga-jackin’.

Did you take anything differently from Ye’s message? Drop some knowledge in the comments.
