    I present to you your latest NBA brain surgeon, Tyrus Thomas.

    Nice spin doctoring by his agents after the fact.

    What a stupid ass reason to be fined. He didn't shit on anyone, or his organization. Besides, whens the last time anyone cared about the dunk contest? Cedric Ceballos? There's only so much you can do. Now it's just uninteresting.

    He best not finish lower than third then! For a team who don't let Big Ben wear his headband Thomas has probably gotten off likely.

    Bottom line is that Thomas has been fined for telling the truth. Whether it is the right thing or the wrong thing to say is a different matter, but I like the fact that Thomas has called it as it is from his perspective. It at least makes for better reading than the bland asinine media trained answer to that question most players would give where they would say what an honour it is to be involved and being round such good players can only benefit my blah blah blah when you know they want to get away from the team hang out relax and have some fun in Vegas!

    If Charles had said that 15 years ago we would have laughed, when a player averaging 3 points or whatever says it, it's a crime!

    Hey Pallister:

    Chicago sucks, and so does Tyrus Thomas.

    It's sad that I would much rather see the judges compete in this contest than the players. But there's good reason for that.

    I'm actually excited to see what Gerald Green is going to do. Tyrus can fly but I don't know if he has enough creativity.

    P.S. They should've brought back Andre Igoudala. He was robbed last year...ROBBED!

    Thomas averages 3 points per game. Why should anyone even been listening to this schnook?
