Default Tyrus Thomas is a moron

http://chicagosports.chicagotribune....ulls-headlines

What a dumbass. He shouldn't be allowed in the dunk contest. Who trains these kids to speak to the media. Tyrus Thomas = clueless athlete.

Quote:
Asked if he were excited about becoming the first Bull since Scottie Pippen in 1990 to participate in the event as part of All-Star weekend, Thomas barely looked up from untying his shoes.

"Not really," Thomas said. "I'm just going to go out there, get my check and call it a day."

Asked if an opportunity to rub elbows with some of the game's greats could be beneficial for a rookie, Thomas kept unlacing.

"I'm just into the free money," he said. "That's it. I'll just do whatever when I get out there."

I'm hoping for his sake he is. Have you heard him in interviews though, he makes Amare Stoudemire sound like einstein.

I haven't really heard him talk in interviews, but if you want dumb find a interview with Joey Graham.

Most of the time he just says the average pointless crap that most players say, but once in a while he'll come up with absolute gems.

Before the season started I posted one of his quotes that basically amounted to "Last season we lost by single and double digits."

Unbelievable.

I don't see the big deal. If Charles Barkley made those same remarks, it would have been brushed off with laughter.

I doubt charles would make those remarks as a rookie. The guy has respect for the game.

nice to hear a player considered a project by many let everyone know what's on his agenda as an NBA rookie... not improving his game, not trying to get more minutes, but all that free money...

aldridge was clearly the best fit for the bulls... paxson ****ed up.

This isn't surprising after that hissy fit he threw in a DraftExpress interview after they projected him to go #7 to the Celtics.

From what I've heard and read of him, I consider him a punk.

The fact that he went to LSU doesn't help.

Idiot alert.

Don't be mad "cuz" we absolutely whipped your ass THIS season in basketball (Says a lot because we aren't that great). Oh wait, everyone's getting a piece of pie.

Get rid of our #1 QB and WR? Marcus Monk still plays for Arkansas. Damien Williams can't hold his jock. And Mustain? That is comical. Kid is overrated and no better than Casey D-i-c-k (they both suck). You obviously nothing of the Mitch Mustain situation. If you did, you wouldn't be saying that we got rid of him. He chose to leave to run one particular style of offense (yeah, that'll help you develop as a QB, dumbass). See ya.

The dunk contest is hardly serious though is it? Who cares what Tyrus Thomas thinks, if he pulls out good dunks then it doesn't matter what his motivation for participating is.

Um obviously I meant #1 rated from high school you idiot. Mustain and Williams were your future

I like McFadden and Jones but like the game against Wisconsin proved, they can be contained since your QBs can't do anything. Also you lost your stud DE.

Basketball for LSU has been horrible because Brady is an idiot and doesn't recruit good guard prospects like DJ Augustin.

I look forward to LSU beating Arkansas once again next season.
