Note: After posting this, I realized that maybe I listened to just a couple bad segments and Napear was for the most part positive about last night and Kevin. Just wanted to write that to be fair. I still believe I had a right to rant about some things that I heard so here it is...
I don't usually rant like this but I have to get something off my chest and didn't want to mess up other thread. The following paragraphs have no order, no though process, lack of proper grammar, and no purpose whatsoever. It's just me ranting
So I get out of work and listened to Peaches' show (first mistake). They're talking about how great the comeback was and taking a lot of calls. A couple callers do the same 'why does everyone think Kevin Martin is a star, we should trade him BS' and I'm getting pissed because neither Peaches nor Mike Lamb say shit about it. Then they start questioning is Kevin can 'adjust' to Tyreke and take on a secondary role. Are we idiots here, that we're the only ones that see that Kevin has close to 0 ego and will do whatever it takes to help this team. Yes, it may be tough at first to incoorporate because he's gonna be big part of the offense but come on, Peaches and Lamb act like he's this ballhog who will not accept to take a couple less shots because he wants to be 'the man.' Doesn't the scarlett douchebag travel with the team and witnesses firsthand how supportive Kevin (and Cisco) are of this team and how it'd be stupid to question's Kevin's character. Is there really a reason not to be positive about his return?? I don't get it.
They get another caller later, when Lamb was by himself, and the guy says how Kevin's injury was a bit of a blessing in disguise because Reke had to step up and be the guy. He also says that once Kevin comes back, that backcourt is going to be sick, which most of us agree. Unfortunately Lamb opens his mouth and again says, "that is (backcourt being awesome) if Kevin can accept and adjust a secondary role." I lost it there just because of the way he kept saying the same shit. Are you saying he can't adjust because he's an Allen Iverson type player who only cares about his stats and being 'the man.' Are you fucking serious Lamb? I'm sure those who listen to Sportsline know what I'm talking about. It was so frustrating.
After a huge win, all these idiots, who are suppose to be supporting the team, do is question how our second best player will 'adapt' to coming back as if he was a selfish prick. Of course they were saying great things about Tyreke and rightfully so but while doing that they were forgetting something. Last night, it was a team effort. The Kings are better because of the team being better, every single part. I loooooovvveeee Tyreke and pray he's the superstar we've been waiting for, but while being a big part of our success, he's not all of it. It's also the coaching staff, it's also the new and improved Beno, it's also the development of JT, it's also Casspi and Brockman, i'ts also Donte's bright spots, it's also Kevin winning that game against Memphis, it's the whole team. Peaches and Lamb are like little Jonah Brother's fans who just want to talk about their new star while they forget the big picture about this team (at least that what I got from listening to their crap tonight).
Sorry for wasting your time but just had to get this out.
