Anthony Tolliver was quoted in the Kings vs Wolves recap as saying that "many players on this team do not bring effort every night." He went on to say in the article that the entire team is responsible for Beasley's pouting early in the Kings game because they tolerate it and allow it to happen. I think these are two different issues that need addressing seperatly. First the issue of players on this team (Tolliver is an insider remember who goes to war with these guys each game) not bringing it every night. I will attach a poll to see who you guys think are the worst offenders on that one. Because I think Tolliver is right, there are guys who do not bring each and every game, and that is pathetic given the fact that these are professional athletes being paid millions. Second, I am not sure that the team needs to feel guilty because Beasley thinks a few calls went against him. Like it or not, the NBA is a league that protects it's stars call wise, they have for years. I hate this about the NBA by the way, a foul should be a foul regarless of who commits it and regarless of how many fouls the offender has. Anyhow, Bealsey is a man who wears his emotion on his sleeve, is still young NBA wise, and isn't going to get the calls that starts get YET. He may get their someday, but he isn't there yet. So, I think Tolliver and the rest of the crew shouldn;t feel guilty for Beasley's behavior. Beasley's mental development of being able to "get over" a bad call is going to be part of his maturity as a player and will help him take a huge step towards becoming a star player in the league.
