Who is the bigger punk?
Between these 2 gentleman, who both have tendencies to be disrespectful, insubordinate, and uncooperative, whom would you describe as the bigger punk? Granted both are high quality players, ignore their skill set when answering, thank you.
ANDREW BYNUM or DEMARCUS COUSINS
Demarcus Cousins, hands down... Ever see him get a foul? Or get fouled? turns to the refs like one of them KO'd his mother...
There's no way a 24 year old man who's been in the league 7 years should continue to act as childish as he does. You'd think a role model like Kobe or D fish or even Pau would of helped him mature at least a little...
Demcarus Cousins is more of a drama queen than a punk. On the other hand, Andrew Bynum pulled one of the biggest punk moves I've ever seen in basketball when he leveled JJ Barea when he was going for a layup last year in the playoffs.
I think Bynum takes this...he's 3 years older, 7 years in, playing on a veteran laden team & he still doesn't get it...the Barea incident, the postgame quotes about shooting 3's, laughing on bench, getting T'ed & high fiving folks etc...what an a$$hole!
Bynum without a doubt. If Cousins was on the Lakers for 7 years with Fisher, Kobe, and Gasol I do not think he would be near as bad. Bynum just doesn't care.
What difference does it make between 24 and 20? Last time i checked you are an adult either way. Bynum never had the problems that Cousins did. Remember Cousins was told not to travel because he had trouble with Donte Green. Bynum never had problems like that.
I dunno if it was a punk move to level Barea.. Try awesome move..
Bynum has been getting a definite attitude. I think he is for the first time feeling like superman and like he can dominate on the court and he's healthy so he's letting it go to his head. He's running his mouth getting lazy on defense, distancing himself from the team etc... But he's still only 24 years old I think. Plus I like thinking to myself as a laker fan whenever I hear about the next young big man prospect or whatever like Anthony Davis, "well just wait until they have to hang with Bynum" he's getting scary good like maybe next year he could be in the MVP race good. And if that comes with some attitude, so be it. Plus I blame Rihanna a little bit. She put Bynum on blast like 2 years ago on a radio station here in so cal when she was asked about dating him and she burst into laughter saying "Bynum? Me and Bynum? Hahaha, he ain't my type" you would think she was talking one of them kenan & kel welcome to goodburger mofo's or something. He probably realized he had to become gangster.
I will say this though, both cousins and Bynum are legit tough guys, they ain't getting punked by anyone in the league.
This really stumped me, but i came to the conclusion that its Bynum. I think Cousins is more a product of his enviroment but Bynum on the other hand has absolutly no excuse. I mean those two techs against the Rockets in a close game the other night were ugly, real ugly.
I'm sorry for not liking JJ Barea...
While Demarcus Cousins certainly is immature, you can't the fact that he had a target on his back from the second he was drafted. If you look at the fouls he gets called for, you see why he has so many technical fouls. Blake Griffin only has two less technical fouls, but people view Griffin as a saint while Cousins is a malcontent.
I'd like to see a triple-threat match between Cousins, Howard, and Bynum right now..... Shaq can even be the ref....
No one cares if you don't like Barea, it's the fact that he did it to SOMEONE, and plus, he's done that crap more than once. He also did it to Michael Beasley. Anytime you go with an elbow when someone is in midair... that's what we call a dirty foul.
Like everyone else said he's been around veterans,he's 7 years in,I thought that right hook Shaq gave him a couple of years ago woulda woke him up lol but nope, just made him pick on little guys like Barea instead of guys his own size, which makes him a punk.
someone said it above which i agreed with.. cousins is a drama queen more than anything.... bynum is just a lil baby and ive been noticing this since a few yrs back... and i know im not the only one who has observed this......
hes dented barea, beasley and also gerald wallace
take a listen
Yeah Bynum's a p*ssy for doing that. Who honestly elbows people in mid air?
jaycee24 - "You'd think a role model like Kobe"
Kobe is the biggest reason why kids today think it's okay to jaw @ refs, he treats them w/ little to no respect... Remember the gay slur last year (it was overblown but still), then Grant Hill and J Dud's commercial haha.
For some reason I don't think Bynum has been that bad, I realize i'm biased but KG and KB24 are everybit as dirty, cheap/physical, and they talk a whole lot more.
Meh as a wolves fan sometimes I wouldn't mind taking an elbow to barea when he's mid-air... Doesn't excuse Bynum, I was just trying to find some amusement in the situation..
Not only is Cousins the biggest punk, he is the whinningest punk. Everytime a calls goes against him he throws a temper tantrum. He is also a spoiled punk. Getting a man fired.
Cousins has so much talent, but he has one of the worst additudes ever to come into the league. The Refs are never going to favor him. The NBA is never going to spotlight him. He will be picked over by coaches for all star games because of his horrible additude.
because he is a fake tough guy. Kobe told him to be or he would be traded a couple years ago. Demarcus Cousins would actually kick yo a$$ if you called him a punk to your face. He kicked Donte Greene's 6'10 220's a$$ in the locker room for taking the last shot of a game last year.
the more i think about it, the more obvious the answer becomes...not only is Bynum an immature punk, but he's also a dirty player who puts others careers at risk...way worse than Cousins!
Griffin be in the conversation. He whines after everything (make or miss), flops, and isn't near the skill level of a Cousins or Bynum. Blake superior gets my vote for biggest punk. But with all this being said i'd gladly want them all on my team.
^But doesn't Duncan whine after every foul call as well? Have you seen his eyes after a foul, looks like they'll pop right out of its socket, but that doesn't make him a punk. Hell doesn't everyone complain after a close foul call?
Like everyone else said he's been around veterans,he's 7 years in,I thought that right hook Shaq gave him a couple of years ago woulda woke him up lol but nope, just made him pick on little guys like Barea instead of guys his own size, which makes him a punk."
bynum's gone at all sizes including shaq. Just got in griffins face the other day.Wallace and beasley arent exactly small. Hes gotten into it with centers. Just got a tech the other day and was thrown out for going after samuel dalmebert. He has in no way singnaled out little guys ala KG.
The thing I have a huge problem with about Bynum is getting ejected in close games, and he did that against Houston twice, and it's obvious that someone(I believe It's Scola) knows how to get into his head. He can't take himself out of games like that and cost his team valuable wins. Those wins could be the difference between a 4 and a 3 seed. They need him to grow up, and I think it'll be very interesting if Houston plays LA in the playoffs, and even though they have played well during the season, I feel very weary abou their chances against a young and fast team like Denver or Houston, even if their not neccesarily up tempo
After Shaq thru that hook at Bynum he backed down quick as hell and you could tell he aint want it to escalate any further than that, cause Shaq woulda put him on his ass.
What about when he cheap shoted Mike Beasley out the air?
Or how about Gerald Wallace out the air?
Bynums a PUNK.
didnt say he wasnt a punk. Just said he hasnt targeted small people. ANd the shaq thing, he had just turned 18 and shaq was a grown man. He didnt back down at all. He got dunked on on one end then picked himself up off the floor ran down the court and got position on shaq, demanded the ball, dunked on shaq then elbowed him becasue he was excited then had to rethink things when he realized shaq wasnt playing around. Hes defenitely been dirty and acted like a punk. i just dont think hes fake or targeting small people. Dalembert and griffin just this past week and i dont hink either qualifies as small.
After that elbow by O'neal he looked scared as hell bra.
How has Garnett not been brought up in this thread?
The dude that would rather pick on Bill Walker while Tyson Chandler and Amar'e Stoudemire and standing around him.
please refrain from calling me "bra" im not a womens' undergarment. And like i said, how many 18 year olds wouldnt be scared against a 34 year old Shaq? Its been 7 years i think hes toughened up a bit.
Rudeboy, Bynum, Cousins, Aamir in that order
23 when he planted Barea on his ass...right BRA?
23 when he knocked Beasley out the air with a cheap shot?
23 when he layed Gerald Wallace out?
Just became a bigger punk.
But I'm the type that don't give a fawk either... I was geeked when he put JJ on his ass... No I don't want to see JJ injured but that reminded of the old NBA days... You think Larry Bird and them would have let fools blow them out like that??? Trying to really push it in your face? Fawk no... Be real... Hell the Pistons didn't let Jordan do ish like that...
Bynum has that edge that Dwight Howard should play with... It's something that Shaq had... Yall call Bynum a punk I can agree distancing yourself from your teammates is bad but dude doesn't care... He's going to go out there and ball out... One thing I hate is he's not pushing himself throughout the whole game though... Taking 3's and not playing defense... Then getting ejected from games... Is stupid as hell... Not really a punk just stupid...
Now DeMarcus is a punk... He talked all that ish and played terrible against Blake... At least back that ish up... Or put that dude on his ass...
whats your point pantyhose?
Lol just saying..........Bra.
i know your just saying, i already said he was a punk and dirty. We agree on that part. Try to keep up pantyhose...
So what's your reasoning for even coming to his defense then....bra?
i said he was a punk and dirty but also a legitimate tough guy. You can be both . You said he was targeting small guys and suggesting he is not tough. I disagree with you...pantyhose
There's nothing tough about trying to end guys careers with dirty hard fouls lol bra.
I know being physical down low and tough are different to many people, but if you pay attention to Bynum battling in the post, he is one of the stronger guys down there. He gets so damn low, and he's really strong down there. He might be a punk, and Cousins might be more of a guy that you wouldn't wanna pick on walking down the street, but Bynum holds his ground, and I've seen him get at it with other centers. KG on the other hand picks on rookies, little guys, and european guys. I love teh guys passion, but he is a "punk" as well.
Trying to end guys careers? Overreacting much pantyhose? ANd i agree there is nothing tough about dropping barea, just dirty(the wallace and beasley ones werent even that bad just resulted in more damage then was intended), but until he backs down to guys im not gonna accuse him of being soft or targeting small guys only. Just admit you were wrong to accuse him of targeting small guys.
I didn't even notice the Lakers Jersey in your avi.
That explains it all Bra. lol you can think what you want, I think Bynums a punk.
well if you think bynum only targets small guys, then you can think what you want to. Like i said, i never disagreed he wasnt a punk. I hope he cleans up his act as well. But you are confusing being dirty and being soft. Bynum is not soft no matter how you want to brake it down pantyhose.
Both a tad bit immature? Anyways I am biased towards Cousins because he is my 2nd favorite player, but I don't think he is a punk. I think punk is a little harsh towards each player. But Cousins seems more immature than punk. He doesn't try to hurt people. That would have to make me go with Bynum. Cousins is getting better every year and by the time he is 24, I don't think he will have many problems. I always thought that this whole Cousins being a headcase thing has been way overblown anyway.
how big men have become the pre modonas lmao
Demarcus Cousins is flippin awesome......stop drafting Jimmer Fridette and that team is cold as a beeeatch...
I know it was a "punk" move but if you know that barea was OK (physically at least) who doesn't have a small chuckle when you see that replay.. Bynums moves on Wallace Beasley and Barea are pathetic, Barea especially because it was so blatant (lakers are down by a ton), then he goes and takes off his jersey just a few steps away and acts like some sort of tough guy when he's walking off the court. That was teen ager esque.. I don't understand the other two shots.. Those just look like he's too lazy to actually go for the block and instead just tries to level them, and with Wallace going through back issues it was so cheap. He's very lucky none of them were seriously injured. I am afraid of it happening again in this years playoffs, because I definitely don't have the lakers winning all of their games...
