Just saw on SportsCenter that he got in a fist fight with one of his teammates in the stands after their game today and had to be separated.
Is time to say enough is enough and just cut ties with him and let him go? or Suspend him again?
What do you think should be done?
I think they should dismiss him from the team. I think it's time. He really has problems. It's worse than I imagined it'd be too.
This can't be true he looked really good today against san diego I was there in person he has a nice touch and can finish around the basket. If he was to get into good shape and stop fouling so much he has lottery potential. He is to big and to strong for most college players and I see him being as good as demarcus cousins looks like he has same mental issues as cousins though. If he did get in a fight I'm guessing it was with agustus the guy just look hard to get along with. If Sidney manages to stay on team and they get bost back they can run three man game with johnson bost and sidney.
Its time to let it go. Hes gotten more than enough chances. Constantly giving him opportunity after opportunity will make him worse and worse. Talent is God given, but you gotta put in work to be skilled. Thats in EVERY aspect of the game be it mental, emotional and physical.
Definately gotta let him go. I can't believe this dude. He gets suspended his whole freshmen year plus part of sophomore year, plays one game and gets suspended again. Then he goes out, plays, and looks pretty good but then gets in a fist fight with his teammate? This kid doesn't get it. He is nothing but a punk. Regardless of how that fight in the stands started, he clearly has taken advantage of the opportunity that has been presented to him. Mississippi State needs to cut ties with him and cut ties with him fast.
IT'S TIME. They need to dismiss him. Yes, he is a very talented kid, but his problems outweigh his talent. He's been known as a troublemaker since HS, and he hasn't matured one bit. He brings too much baggage to the program on-and-off the court, and is a bad influence for other teammates.
For this i say he doesn't get suspended. this is pretty common it just doesn't happen much out in the open
Toney delk vs Ron mercer while at Kentucky
Steve Blake vs Juan Dixon Twice while out in Maryland
My Brother and teammate Ted Allen out in Colorado
Stackhouse vs Brian reece
Both will probably be disciplined some how after all the facts are found out , like who started it.
He won that fight man.
Did any of those guys have problems like Sidney did Quincey?
I think he gets dropped from the team as well. He's a headache at this point. Sad, I guess he goes the Character route.
The only reason i can see him getting kicked off the team is because it happened in public, thats a nono, gotta have fight behind closed doors in practice or a gym. The fact that no one was arrested may help
Stackhouse had fight problems worst then Sydney had. Sydney has only had one problem though, when he got suspended from the team for a game. The ineligible thing wasn't a personal attitude problem
^^ That's wrong. He's had problems since HS. This is a section of a write-up DraftExpress had on him at the Amare Stoudemire Invitational Classic in Januaray 2008.
"For one, Sidney’s body language is as poor as you can get, and disrespectful. He regularly screams at his teammates, the referees, his coach, and anyone else that stands in his way. Looking at the way he executes plays, it doesn’t really look like he wants to be out there for the most part, and you’ll see that with the non-existent effort he puts in regarding everything else besides his scoring. Defensively would be the main one, not even attempting to put a body on his man half the time. His conditioning is pretty poor as well, leading him to call his own substitutions whenever he pleases from what we saw from the bench, entering and exiting the game virtually whenever he pleases.
His behavior was so bad in the finals that the refs finally had enough and kicked him out of the game. Sidney was ejected for pushing a player who had fouled him out of bounds, drawing a well-deserved technical, and then a quick second technical after throwing a temper tantrum (kicking his legs in the air, pulling his jersey, voicing his displeasure) immediately afterwards. His parents were not happy at all, nor were the organizers, and the head coach of San Diego High School then proceeded to heckle the referee loudly for the rest of the game. It was a complete circus as you can probably imagine. No one seemed to have any issue with what Sidney did, all we heard were complaints about the nerve the referee had to eject him from the finals of such an important game.
Will Sidney mature as a player and person and grow out of the many extremely concerning issues we’re currently seeing? Maybe, maybe not. It’s pretty much up in the air if history has anything to say. There is no denying his talent, but you have to wonder if he really has what it takes to help a strong college program win games. The NBA is another story altogether at this point."
And it doesn't seem like he's matured since then.
The kid has talent and is probably going to waste it
This is what happens when ADULTS give-in to a KID: His dad or some other man (hell even his MOM) needed to step-in and give him a royal ass-whoopin- has nothing to do with being immature, is about conducting yourself the right way (things most kids learn early) he only knows one way and that's his way-
knowing all the things he had been though and the recent suspension from the previous game..Sidney should've walked away...no matter what his teammate said or did..he's the 1 with the most to lose...
This singular act isn't the biggest thing in the world. It happens all the time in the other team sports, and even happens at times in private in basketball. With it being on camera and in public, the university has to suspend the two of them. Not for the entire year, but a couple or few games.
With the accumulation of his nonsense, though, I would be stunned if a team touches him if he declares for the draft this year. He doesn't have enough going for him to mature on an NBA team's dime. Certainly, no decent club oversees will waste an American spot on him. Maybe the Dakota Wizards will slurge and sign him for $300 a week if he decides to come out.
what a dumbass plain & simple
the funny thing is sidney & the guyng are or were roommates.....someone better sleep with 1 eye open...
but everyone that was near them said sidney,didnt start the fight...but he could've walked away
I don't think it matters who started it or who won it. The fact is he got in a fight with one of his OWN TEAMMATES. These are the guys he is supposed to get along with in order for chemistry to work. Chemistry is so important to a team's success. He doesn't seem to care to much about the game or he just seems to like being suspended. Cut your losses before its too late, and let Sidney just sit at home and not be able to play a game until learns to control his anger. This is starting to get worse than Cousins in Kentucky.
I doubt that he's gonna waste his talent. The only time that would happen is if he quits. He will still get a 6 figure contract over in Europe just like qyntel woods and many other talented ballers who couldn't get there head on straight if he doesn't make a change( and if he's kicked off the team) even if he doesn't change much he can make it to the NBA ala Rober Whaley
Turns out, even the bench isn't a safe place for Renardo Sidney to be. The troubled forward kept his nose clean long enough to play two games for the Bulldogs, then was benched again for an outburst in practice, and last night was hauled away by Honolulu police after participating in a brawl in the stands at the Diamond Head Classic.
Talent or no, can Rick Stansbury ignore the fact that Sidney is a huge distraction to the team? If the sophomore is out at MSU, can he make it in the NBA, or should he try to find a DI program that will take a chance on him?
ESPN.com's NBA Draft page has Sidney pegged as a mid to late first round pick, but this current trend of immaturity could lower that number into the non-guaranteed danger zone. Still, we tend to believe that NBA scouts will give him a long look based on potential alone.
- Eric Angevine
he shouldve took the jeremy tyler route to the NBA...
"even if he doesn't change much he can make it to the NBA ala Rober Whaley"
Because that example worked out so well for Utah.
This guy is just a consant problem....an nba team would be stupid to even draft him, he'll end up in jail a few times before his life is through.
Sidney pulled a Artest SMDH.......
I am highly upset/disappointed because I was so high on him as a NBA prospect. He can kiss the NBA goodbye
Will a NBA team use a draft pick on Sidney come June?
Its a Shame..Becuz Sidney has top 5 talent and 3rd Round Intelligence
can you imagine if wade & lebron get into a fight in front of cameras? lmao
