Glenn Robinson III is a Cry Baby and the Sixers Should Bench Him
A few weeks ago, Glenn Robinson III didn’t know his role on the 76ers. After a terrible loss last night to a depleted Golden State team, GR3 is still crying. After the game last night – GRIII again, spoke about being on the 76ers and his “new role” with the team.
“I think just taking it one day at a time is the thing that I’m trying to focus on now in what happened, as far as the year I was having or the team I was on. It was a whole new team. I have a whole different role. I’m just trying to execute that and just take it one day at a time.”
“My role on the Warriors was, I was guarding the best player every night. I was coming off shooting threes and getting my game to help the team. What can I do best here? That’s my main goal, my main thought. Obviously, the other stuff that lingers in your head is your value of this summer, but I try to just take it one day at a time because that’s all I can control at this point.”
Give me a break, Glenn. Here’s the reality:
You were on Golden State on a “prove it” contract because the team was down Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and at times, Draymond Green. In 6 seasons in the NBA – you have been on 4 different teams. No one even wanted you last year. The only offers you got were from Golden State and the Rockets. You wouldn’t have touched the floor on the Rockets so you went to the Warriors.
I understand the 76ers are in a bad place right now. You haven’t gotten to experience what it’s like to play on a team with a healthy Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris lineup. That sucks. But to act like you had it so much better on Golden State on a team full of 10-day contracts and in full tank mode is just stupid.
I am 100% done with him crying post game about his role on this team. How can the coaching staff continue to allow this to happen? After his current team just lost in embarrassing fashion, GR3 stated that he wouldn’t rule out a return to Golden State after this season because they “treated him well”.
Seriously…? Sit this guy down for a game or two. Let him ride the bench in street clothes and think about if he wants to play period. This type of talk is unacceptable from a new player on a team that needs nothing more than a united locker room to battle through the tough times as we hopefully get healthy for a playoff run.
