"He was running his mouth. Don't talk it if you can't back it up," Thomas said. "It's not even MTV, and he got punked." about Paul Pierce obviously.

Tim Thomas, of fugazi fame, needs to produce consistently for an entire season before he starts talking trash. He puts together a nice thirteen game stretch and he thinks he is the second coming of Michael Jordan...

man fans can never give a player props. if he plays consistently for a season, their gonna ask for 2. Tim has been playing great since february.

bottom line, pauol pierce was talking trash, and he backed it up with a 5 point game.
Doesn't matter because TT always does that. For stretches he'll play well and than stink up the joint.

Also PP has shown he can play consistently through out the season. The guys an all-star and is a guy that on a consistent basis gets it done.... No one has ever questioned why he underachieves or why he doesn't give it his all.

TT is the one talking trash (something he likes to do) but in reality he is the one who is getting punked because he really can't back it up. You look at his career and it's such a huge disappointment because he's so talented, yet one of NBA top 5 in under achievers. Pierce most likely will let this game pass him and than consistenlty put up the points that he can.

As for fans asking their players for consistency.... thats what fans want. They want the athletes and put up something on a consistent basis. They don't wnt him to go one night 1 for 30 and socre 3 points and the next night score 30 points on 12 for 20.... IMO the fan has a right to ask his player to give him consistency every game. So if a guy plays consitenlty for one reason, IMO the fan deserves to ask for another... not even that the fan probably deserves to have it as long as the player plays because in the long term aren't we the ones paying his contract? By buying the teams jerseys, sports items, going to games, etc.
