I watched the rockets kings

I watched the rockets kings game last night.... cousins was atrocious.

Bad body language, no effort in D, selfish (black hole in O and no help in D), poor decision making... I can't stand to watch him. Not only Scola outplayed him but even SAM DALEMBERT (who is not what you can call a good offensive player) kills him every time he got the ball.

Cousins is so overrated, you only have to watch him once to say "I don't want to play (coach, deal...) with this man". Maybe he can put some stat' but no way he can make your team successfull.

Everyone has an attitude

Everyone has an attitude problem in the league... Kobe b*tches a lot, KG is ignorant as f*ck, Rondo is not a saint at all.

Just cause they don't display

Just cause they don't display it doesn't mean they don't have it. It's an emotion, who doesn't have an attitude in this world. BTW Rubio displayed a Diva-like tude during the Draft process.

Memphis Tyger

How did you get all of those points... and how would you know Rubio had a "diva-like tude" during the draft? He never said a negative word. Any comments were from unnamed sources, not from Rubio.

Would you have wanted to play

Would you have wanted to play in Minnesota two years ago? Nobody did. Brandon Knight did that too when he got drafted. It looked like he just got sentenced to death when he heard his name called by the Pistons.

I'll throw in Stephen Jackson

I'll throw in Stephen Jackson and Ron Artest/Metta World Peace. As a Pacers fan, I'm still miffed at them for nearly destroying our franchise. O'Neal stayed around for a little while longer, so I had to root for him, but now that he's gone...yeah. He throws a mean punch, though. Lance Stephenson appears to have a similar attitude, but he hasn't really done anything worthy of a facepalm lately.

Athletes in general appear whiny because they are so emotionally invested in the game. That does not mean they all have attitude problems.

for the rubio supposed "diva

for the rubio supposed "diva like" behaviour after the draft : rubio was very young, from a different culture, was living with his parents playing with badalone (next to barcelone) and had a contract offer from barcelone : that is to say the best european club. He chose to stay home and matured before coming to the nba. Minnesota was not his primary prefered destination but do you have already hear rubio piss on minny ?.... no.

And nobody now can say his choice was bad : he performs well today cause he learn during 2 years in barcelone and faced difficulties. You would have been the first to criticize him if he came earlier and didn't perform. Sometimes staying overseas to mature is the best choice for a foreign prospect : ginobili, marc gasol, gortat, mirotic ...?

Rubio would've been excellent even if he would've come over immediately. The 2 yrs more he spent in europe just aged him 2 yrs. His game transcended and that is why he was selected #5 instead of #55.

Rubio

I'm very tired of hearing that no one wants to play in Minnesota. Step up and tell me what you know as fact about Minnesota before you spout garbage that you have never previously experienced. If you have been to Minnesota and actually experienced what you are speaking of fine it is justified, but if are another ESPN junky talking of things you know nothing of just keep your mouth shut.

I have lived in Minnesota all

I have lived in Minnesota all 20 years of my life and cant imagine living anywhere else. It is amazing here. In fact the city I live in was named the best place to live in america.

I truly think rubio's "semi

I truly think rubio's "semi failure" in barcelone was very important in his maturation : he was a teenager out of badalone. Out of barcelone he was a young man. Facing difficulties is very important for a young player (especially a point guard) to grow up in his game and in his life.

Two more years in barcelone was not a slap in the head of minny. It was 2 more years of learning with experienced players and coaches at the best level in europe. It's also 2 more years of growth : physicaly (and you can compare pictures of rubio between badalone and minny there is some change). That's major if you want to be ready and not to face injuries.

I think playing in a small market like minny (with a little less pressure and more support...) can be a very good thing for a rookie who needs to adjust to the nba game and a new culture.
