Default Arenas: Thornton Was Snubbed

This reminds me of when I was in the Rookie-Sophomore game. I was a starter. I started at the two over J-Rich I think. It was me and Tony Parker in the backcourt. But anyway, it was an All-Star game, so before the game we were over on the court messing around and our coach, Mike Fratello came in and cusses us out. I was over there thinking, Man, are we in the playoffs? Ive never been in the playoffs but I hope its not like this. He was just giving it to us.

You guys are having fun! This is not for fun! You have to go out there and play serious!

So he made an early sub and subbed me out once the game started. Oh man, I was livid. I was hot on the bench, I was mad on the bench. So Im sitting next to Jamal Tinsley and Im like, Yo, when we get in, I want the ball every time.

And you know Tinsley, hes like, Aiight.

Now Im not even laughing no more. Im mad. Im on the bench ready to cry boo hoo I got subbed out boo hoo and Im the only one that got subbed out boo hoo. So we get in the game and Tinsley passed me the ball every time and I scored like 21 points in the second period and ta-dah, MVP! So I want to thank Coach Fratello, I dont think I would have been holding up that MVP trophy if he hadnt gotten mad at us and subbed us out. I dont think I would have been mad enough to go out there and ball like that. So, players out there, take some of this coaching stuff and use it as motivation, like the kid Al Thornton. He had the same mentality I had. They snubbed him and he went out and had 33 against the Hawks. He went out there and showed the other rookie, Horford, this is how I do!

The difference between N. Young and Thornton's snub is Thornton is second in scoring among all rookies. Keep pouring in on Al and hopefully he can make ROY without making the All Star Team.

It'll be nice if Thornton has Gilbert Arenas like in his career. If Thornton can be a SF version of Arenas, good shooter, big scorer, clutch player, along with his athletecism, etc. that would really be nice.
