Renardo Sidney

Just saw the video of him fighting with his own teammate (yeah, Im late on seeing it)

That incident just might have cost him a shot at being a 1st round draft pick, players in the past have had their stock drop because of alleged fights with teammates, but damn.. they have this guy on footage... what a shame, he played fairly well in his first 2 college games. hard to see teams taking a chance on this guy in the 1st round... will he even get drafted? who knows all I know is I'm hopping off the band wagon.. how you gonna get into a fight in front of fans... and with one of your team captains??! what a damn shame

After sitting out a year and

After sitting out a year and a half..Sidney should've been trying his best to stay away from trouble...Getting into 2 fights and receiving a suspension all in 1 week..,kind of tarnished his chances of being a lottery pick...Attitude ,weight issues & immaturity is the reasons why teams drafting in the top 3 avoided Cousins last year...

I felt Sidney was the only guy in the 2011 draft..That could've been a franchise type player..But nobody will be willing to use a top 15 pick on a troubled guy that sat out almost 2 years and also has trouble getting along with teammates...He can be a type Chris Webber type or another Chris Washburn......He might slip into the late 1st round and teams like the Spurs,Mavs,Magic or Heat might take a chance on him...

yeah hopefully he gets a shot

yeah hopefully he gets a shot at being a late 1st round pick.. coz to me he doesnt really deserve it. he's a talented guy... franchise type player? im a little skeptical on that but he really does have a chance to be a very special player... the only way i see him sneaking into the 1st round is if he doesnt get into anymore trouble and has an awesome combine.. the latter we know we is very capable of doing so.. but this guy is just so immature, so we'l ll see what happens.. did they come up with a punishment for renardo yet btw?

Physically he reminds of Zach

Physically he reminds of Zach Randolph but hopefully these action are not signs that he will have the same reputation as Randolph early on but Randolph was very talented and finally seemed to have found his niche and is staying low of the radar.

i wanna see what might happen

i wanna see what might happen if Sidney and Cousins are locked in a room together for a day....And in order for them to get out..There's a big sign that says '''To get out you must hold you pee for 2 hours''' i wonder who will hold it for 2 hours and who will try peeing on the sign....

Renardo

It's a shame he has lottery pick talent when he is in shape, has all the tools, he just hasn't put it together because of all the off the court issues. If he just had a worked out hard to be in good shape and forgot all this extra stuff and did the right thing by ncaa rules he would be a definite lotto pick possibly one and done

High High risk

I would not touch him early in the draft. Once he gets money what do you think is going to happen? If he behaves it's great, if he goes south you could lose your job because the signs are there. The owner will be like WTF. I said Lance Stephenson was a gamble,but Indiana took him late so if he is a pain it does not kill you.If he is a lottery pick he will come in feeling entitled. Yellow lights blinking, slow down, proceed with caution.

kicked of team

Renardo might actually benefit from getting kicked of the team. Sometimes when drastic things happen in your life your forced to grow up and I think gettin kicked off the team could change his attitude and life around. If he got kicked off the team I think he should go to the dleague show an improved attitude and work ethic while playing pro players ala latavious williams except he is way more talented. This route could get him a second round look and I can see him making a nba roster as a second round pick just like Derrick Caracter difference Sidney is a bit taller and more skilled. If he were to transfer he'd have to sit out a year he has gone throught to much with the ncaa sometimes people just need a change of scenery. I'm just sad he doesn't get to play out this season because I think he is every bit as talented as Perry Jones because unlike Jones he demands the ball and he finishes exceptionally well.

Just want to know.....

I know that it seems like a moot point, but did anyone know what the fight was about? Yes, he should never have been in a situation where he fights with a teammate in the crowd during a game, much less just in general, but I would like to know the details behind the action. That being said, his draft stock was only going to get higher based on his playing, and him not playing pretty much means he turns into an even longer shot to get into the first round than before. He is big, he is talented, but he has not proven much at all, he is not in great shape and I think he is a big risk. Remember, Caracter was one of the last picks in the draft, and he rarely plays, even if it is for a stacked Lakers team. Sidney has even more size than Caracter, but why risk a pick on someone who has shown very little as far as being able to contribute at an NBA level? I had high hopes for Renardo, I know he has size and a skill set that make people at least pay attention to what he does, but so far his choices have been disappointing. Even without his fighting with a teammate, who for all we know could have been bitter that Renardo stole his job/minutes, he still seems like he was a long ways away from getting into optimal playing shape. Guys who get labeled as in poor shape or lazy need to do a lot to get that label taken away, and Sidney is nowhere close. I mean, at the HS level Kevin Love would have been comparable to Sidney in terms of size/conditioning level, though Kevin was probably always a better player. My point is, that Kevin worked his butt off and has improved his conditioning constantly, he is in amazing shape as compared to what he was in HS/College. Sidney has yet to show the ability or work ethic that warrants him in even the same class as Kevin Love, and I would say he should take an example from Derrick Caracter and work his butt into shape if he wants to be drafted/answer questions about his attitude.
