Hmm, someone sounds bitter about not being missed in Westwood:
Real classy Reeves. Not.
Let's see. Ben Howland throws crybaby Reeves Nelson off the team on Dec. 9. Since then, they're 8-2, with the only losses coming on the road to an average Stanford team (the fact they are near the top of the conference tells you how bad the Pac-12 is this year) and a Cal team on its way to the NCAA tournament under Mike Montgomery.
Since Reeves was tossed off the team for being a petulant child, the Wear twins have greatly improved (especially Travis, who has scored 20, 16, and 19 in the last three games, respectively). But most of all, unlike Reeves and his "me-first" attitude, the Wears are doing what Howland wants them to do, not getting in trouble, and not getting suspended for their attitude.
Reeves could have congratulated his friends on the win over hated U$C. Instead, he decided to throw in a shot at the Wears. Is Howland fair in the way he plays them? Maybe not and maybe someone like Brendan Lane should be seeing more time. But that's on Howland, not the Wear twins.
And of course, knowing how classless his Twitter jibe was, he went and deleted it, but not before it made its way around the UCLA blog-osphere. In typical Reeves Nelson fashion, rather than be a man and admit making a mistake and apologizing for it, he simply tries to pretend it never happened. How weak. Chump.
But, are we ever surprised when Reeves does something stupid?
