Brendan Haywood Spouts Off


Lose.  Lose.  Get ejected.  Act like a fool.  Win.  Lose.  Make a complete joke of oneself while speaking to the press.

That would be Brendan Haywood's course of action over the last week and change.

That latest part had to do with the labeling of LeBron James as a 'crybaby.'  As reported by ESPN:

"Awww," Haywood said, in a whiny, high-pitched voice to mock James. "They are trying to hurt me."

Haywood, who was called for a flagrant-two foul and ejected from Game 2 after shoving James, believes it's time for Cleveland's superstar to stop complaining.

"I mean come on man, this is the playoffs," Haywood said following Monday's practice. "He wears 23, he wants to be Michael Jordan, I can respect that, he's a great player. You saw what Mike went through. Mike got fouled way worse than this. No one is trying to hurt him, everybody is trying to play basketball, trying to play tough. Play basketball and leave it alone."

Completely unnecessary and uncalled for.

Do these Wizarding folk learn anything?

It wasn't bad enough that they have had their heads handed to them all series despite the premonitions of DeShawn Stevenson and friends.

It wasn't bad enough that Haywood clearly took a potshot at James in Game 2.

It wasn't good enough for Haywood that he was only ejected and not suspended for the shove to the airborne man.

Nope, he had to call one of the league's two premier players a crybaby.  While his team is sitting on the brink of elimination.

The over-under on points scored for LeBron on Wednesday is 87.5.
