Who said I'm comparing him?
Laker fans need to stop getting all defensive and butthurt about it and realize. Every team has players that get involved in stuff outside of basketball. Zach Randolph did more than most people in his Portland days, when he was still a kid (he was there since he was 19 years old). He didn't get into much trouble in New York and here with the Clippers he's having a very tough season. But since he's not named Kobe Bryant or Carmelo Anthony or any other player that messes up all the time, you guys give him a hard time.
If you guys get ESPN texts or even half wittedly listen to any kind of NBA news anywhere, you'll realize stuff like this happens all the time. The only thing that seperates this incident from the others is that this is Zach's second time. No matter what he's going through he should have known better than to get his second one.
But sheesh guys, lighten up a bit. Yeah I'm sticking up for a Clipper. But all you guys do is "Oh he was bad before so he is now" and yet when people say anything about Kobe Bryant or anyone else you say "UGH THAT WAS SO LONG AGO that doesn't even matter".
I'm not comparing, only showing you guys how it feels being in a bubble. I know I'm in a Clipper bubble but guess what, you guys are all in your Laker bubbles as well.
Well, Zach has improved over the years, but he still has a lot of negative personality traits that just reflects upon his work ethic.
And yes, his work ethic is very very questionable. He, like Lamar, has the potential to be insanely good, much better than he is now, but doesn't commit to it. And yes, I just compared him to Lamar, THAT was a comparison.
Speaking of, Lamar got busted for smoking weed twice, and hasn't exactly been a class act himself. Yet you guys would say "that was the past" and defend him in a heartbeat wouldn't you?
Well so would I. That's what bothers me that you guys are so hard on other players that don't wear purple and yellow.
