What the hell, Charlie Bell?
I didn't think the Bucks should have matched Miami's offer to G Charlie Bell this summer. Nothing against the guy, I just didn't think he produced enough to warrant the money. Plus, he overtly indicated he would rather play anywhere but here. I was more than willing to oblige him, but GM Harris felt he was worth it. Fair enough.
He actually started the season pretty well, but that didn't last. Since about the third game he's delivered exactly bubkus.
But here's the kicker. I just read in a three day old article on JSonline that part of the reason he's playing poorly is he's not in shape!
"Right now, I've been working out like crazy the last week or week and a half on a treadmill, running before games. I'm trying to work myself into top physical condition and help this team win."
The last week to week and a half?? What the f#*k?!
Well, hold up, I'm missing the bigger outrage here. How can he be out of shape? How can that be true? Is this the 1950s? Does he smoke like Vlade Divac? Was he selling insurance or automobiles to supplement his income during the offseason? How could he come to camp out-of-shape?
And more to the point, how the F can he still be out-of-shape? We're a month into the season!
Bucks fans, I can't even tell you how pissed I am at Charlie Bell right now. Apparently I'm not alone. Coach K is so mad at him he can barely speak his name.
What do you guys (and gals) think, Antlerheads? Have you had enough of this guy's antics or what?
