stag·nant
   /ˈstægnənt/ Show Spelled[stag-nuhnt] Show IPA
–adjective
1.
not flowing or running, as water, air, etc.

He's not complaining. He is saying that when he doesn't get the ball the offense is not flowing, which is COMPLETELY true! He said they were under preforming. Nobody disagrees. He's not complaining. He's saying the offense doesn't work when he doesn't get the ball, which is true. On a trash talking, referee arguing team, he is very classy. After a bad call, he gives the ball to the ref. KG, haha well watch Celtics games. When was he complaining? If he said "My teammates are doing terribly by not passing it to me. I deserve WAY more touches" That would be complaining. Well, there's my rant for the day ;)

You sound so stupid, he hasn't been getting enough touches since he joined the Celtics. He was averaging the most out the big 3 before he got there, and was on the better team. He has one of the best attitudes to ever play the game. Get your head straight.

Hell most superstars will be lucky to sniff this list because well 90% are egomaniacs. and Hellcrooner Pau whines and complains with the best of them no way does he even get a chance here.

the Lakers needed to win more than the Suns did..Lakers lose and they are officially in a tailspin.. you dont build confidence beating GS, SAC or Min.. thats why they are the best team in the western conference.. with that being said the Suns gave them a fight without Channing Frye, (His floor spacing, helps the Suns get into their rhythm offensively) Robin Lopez dissapearing ( 0 rebounds ) and a BS Call by the refs ( No flagrant on Gasol, Gentry gets two techs, Fisher hits two free throws, amundson misses 2 free throws ) that changed the whole game..so even in losing to the Lakers I believe the Suns can still make some noise in the playoffs. Do I think they'll win the Championship? Not really... Do I think they are capable of beating L.A. Denver, or your precious Mavs? YOU BETCHA!

Chauncey Billups (always a leader, his calm and maturity is the reason why the Nuggets have been so together. he sets the example in a lockerroom full of short fused or colourful personalities.)
Brandon Roy (he rather gets 20 and 11 and than 30 and 5)
Shane Battier (carries himself like a professional on the court and doesn't get caught up in grudges)
Tim Duncan (if every superstar had his selflessness and uncanny ability to make his teammes grow, there would've been more different NBA champs last decade)
Manu (in his prime he was arguably the most productive SG on a per minute basis, but has always accepted a bench role for the good of the team)
Steve Nash (few players can not only lead a team like him, but also fuel their teammates with the same passion for the game. Few NBA players display more intelligence and class off the court...if any.)
Yao Ming (a humble giant)
Jarrett Jack (his toughness and will to win make him ready to do anything that is asked of him...wether it's to score in the clutch, facilitate or guard the opposing teams best perimeter scorer)
Anthony Parker (another vintage pro who does all the little things quietly, but with great impact)
Grant Hill (alot of players would've hung 'em up to avoid any tarnish...but not Grant Hill, who truly loves the game).
Delonte West (just shuts his mouth and let's his play do the talking. his legal woes are not because of his bad attitude, but because of mental illness. The guy is all heart on the floor.)



It's too bad good attitudes are in vast minority in the NBA.

Can't really say I could consider that a very compelling argument for him having a bad attitude.

--------


Can't really I overall that I agree with the basic tone of this thread, either. (That, roughly put, all the "nice guys" of the league have the "best attitudes" by default).

For example, I think Kenyon Martin has a fantastic attitude. And I'm not joking. I understand full well why fans around the league would dislike him, because he's a button pusher. But he's an excellent guy to have on your own team. And although I would agree with anyone who said his attitude used to be worse, since coming back from his two microfracture surgeries he has grown into a veritable team leader who steels his teammates' resolve and passion to win, who has worked tirelessly to turn himself back into the caliber of player who could earn his over-bloated salary (when he could have just coasted instead), who leads by example... etc.

A lot of people see his chest thumping bravado antics as just egoistical buffoonery. And he does have a huge ego, no doubt. But I think that stuff comes more from his passion and fire than anything else. And there's no worse attitude a player could possibly have than not caring.

If it was one of those things where like, you could go hang out with a team, they might be it, haha. Maybe even the Magic though, just so I could hear Jason Williams Freestyle, lmfaoooo.
