learn to take your beating

New Orleans and Dallas are wondering how this guy has been eating their lunch.

NBA playoffs is very exciting. The intensity is something Hollywood cannot reproduce. Most of the top teams are really just coasting through the regular season. For them this is the first time they actually discover the limits of their abilities as a team. This can be a frustrating situation. Imagine winning the majority of your games, and always thinking "well if it really mattered we could have won that game we lost to Charlotte on the road last week."

Then finally you make the playoffs and you have Glen Big Baby Davis and Brian Scalabrine humiliating you. You got a guy nobody thought could measure up to his teammates in Rajon Rondo going for another triple double (practically in the first half alone), and then a journeyman, formerly coached by Van Gund himself, Eddie House going off for a career high tally.

I can certainly understand how that would get under your skin.

This explains how in almost every playoff game in the second round, grown men just refusing to take their medicine. Deal with it! Lakers, Mavs, Magic, Cavs. They have to just be professional and take their beatings when they come. Boston has learned that long ago. It doesn't bother them. What does KG do when someone does a bitch move to him? HE PUNISHES THEM ON THE SCOREBOARD. AGAIN. AND AGAIN. AND AGAIN. AND AGAIN.

Of course with that said, I think if a player assaults someone where it is not part of the game. The punch, elbow, high kick, hockey stick to the neck from behind, etc. that has nothing to do with a play - should elicit criminal charges brought against them. But that's just me. I've never been there myself in real competitive action like this. It could save some issues you see at college games though where people are killed over sports altercations. That is really stupid!!!

Learn to take your beating, and we can all get along!
