Charlie Villanueva Trash Talks Isaiah Thomas About Hard Fouls

Just because Charlie Villanueva’s wallet is a little lighter following the $25K fine he received from the NBA for elbowing Isaiah Thomas’ mug, doesn’t mean he’s got any less bravado. Charlie V took shots at the diminutive Sacramento Kings point guard through the media today. Per the Detroit News: “Charlie Villanueva, dirty player? According to Sacramento Kings guard Isaiah Thomas, Villanueva qualifies for that label, after Villanueva’s hard foul Tuesday night resulted in a flagrant 2, an automatic ejection. Villanueva was incredulous when the notion was presented to him. ‘Dirty player? Not at all,’ said Villanueva. ‘It was an open lane, I tried to block it, he’s 4-foot-11, 100 pounds soaking wet so it looks bad.’ Villanueva felt Thomas, who is 5-foot-9, doesn’t have the NBA experience, as a second-year player, to differentiate between a hard foul and a dirty play. ‘None. He has less than 100 games? I didn’t know that,’ Villanueva said. ‘He was a rookie last year? I didn’t know that.’ His obvious annoyance and sarcasm about Thomas’ credentials notwithstanding, Villanueva felt the ejection itself was unwarranted, given that Thomas’ reaction seemed to lead to the officials reviewing the foul, which came after the shot clock expired with seconds remaining in the first half. ‘He came after me. I learned my lesson after the last time (laughs); I wasn’t gonna do anything,’ Villanueva said. ‘I’m not trying to hurt anybody out there.’”

    Ladies and Gentlemen, may I introduce: Charlie Villanueva.

    “I’m not trying to hurt anybody out there.”

    You couldn’t if you tried Soft Serve Charlie.

    I’d honestly put my money on Thomas.

  • Be.water

    Charlie V is garbage anyways.


    i was a hard foul . not a flagrant 2. that was it .


    i don’t think you understand where Charlie comes from son. props to I.T. for steppin to him though.

  • It was a hard foul, if it was to anyone bigger then Thomas it would have been a flagrant 1!! But because he is so small it looked worse. But Villanueva coming with his BS saying that he was trying to block the shot is a joke…

    Your right, I don’t Father.

    Sweetest kid of the borough, religious to the core.


    … dude done alot of great things for peeps + he got Dominican Republic roots , hes automatically hard as nails. i know very religious guys that’l phuk u up quick 2 times. that dont play a role in it.


    now go fetch my slippers.

  • LakeShow

    lol. soooo haaaard

  • Dutch Rich

    Glad we’re still talking about Charlie. I would hate to evoke my beloved Holland and it’s abundant culture and illustrious past.

  • fruizm

    word. Charlie is a bum and I bet Thomas could do some damage.

  • LakeShow

    I have my money on a dutch kick boxer above anyone besides top level MMA fighters.

    He’s from like Corona Queens and he’s hardly a tough guy.

  • roscoe

    why are some guys so hypersensitive when they get fouled while others shake it off?

    bron bron walks away almost everytime. shaq walked away…

    this guy, Isaiah Thomas, qualifies as SOFT according to Larry Bird’s almanac on toughness


    oh yeah ? Dominican Republic is poor as phuk. Its ghetto. Its kids killin adults for a bowl of rice. illustrious ? invoke if you like but why ? Don’t flatter yourself man. Holland is orange (i don’t like orange coz all it is is pure hate) & You got Canada to bail you out from the war… I rest my case. I was there last week & will be in Amsterdam again this saturday & know that its good for weed & prosties. + How many players from your beloved Holland you got in the NBA ? Exactly. As the game evolved Dutch players can’t make it in the league coz it takes more than just height now. Feel me ? + You know the saying. The bigger they are …


    You have your money on everything you material pesant. F U & Your Broke LakeShow.


    … not really .

    I’m just wraking leaves in my back yaaaard.


    you have your money on everything you material pe$ant. The LakeShow has been . Face it .


    not really .

    I’m in my house wraking leaves in the back yaaaard .




    wraking son . wraking :-)

    If it was a player who actually did something in the league, this criticism to Isaiah would be fair. But honestly? More people know your contract and hairlessness than actually know you, Charlie.

  • barnabusb

    CV is just lazy. He axe-handle smashes guys as they come down the lane all the time simply because he can’t move his feet fast enough to get out of the way or jump high enough to actually block the shot. Thomas over-reacted to it for some reason and the refs fell for it. It wasn’t a dirty play or a flagrant 2. Just a hard foul by a lazy defender.

    hes a Cancer to his team

  • SternISaDOUCHE

    The NBA going to be netball soon enough if stern has it his way! Seriously this qualifies as a hard foul now? Ridiculous!!!

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/savagemuzicgroup T-Ray

    Well to be fair to your comparisons Bron is 6’8 250 Shaq was 7’0 300 roughly. Thomas is 5’9 140. Thomas is far from soft but he took a damn cheap shot in mid flight. Did he overreact? Yes but you can’t compare him taking hard fouls the way Bron and Shaq do/did.

    During the lock out at Sac State isaiah thomas came into the well (our gym) and rolled in with like 4 other homies, all hoopers and big af. I had to guard this guy, dude is ridiculously good. i know i’m just a nobody, but guarding him first hand i knew he was something special, and i didn’t even know who he was at the time. my team actually started winning, and this dude was like okay y’all wanna play!? and just went into this beast mode and took over the game. I have a feeling he has a little D-Wade in him, when they get mad they just go into a whole nother level. Charlie V and the pistons better watch out next time they play.

  • roscoe

    that was not a cheap shot; cv went straight into him & sent a message about going to the rim.

    no one gives a damn when bg32 annihilates ppl, so why should anyone give a damn when a “boss-man” clogs the paint.

    i understand your point about size, but i don’t care, and neither should you…

    NBA = no boys allowed & clearly IT did not get the memo.

  • Dutch Rich

    Aah, Hookers and Weed, You’re making me homesick.

    I love the way you mix your colors and your use of very broad strokes.
    Let me take a stab at it (no pun intended).

    So I’m in a cab and the Irish cabby keeps looking at me in the mirror. Finally he says “are you Dominican”, I says “no, but I get that often”.
    He says “oh good”, I says “why”.
    “One time” he says, “I’m picking up a fare, black guy, nice suit. He says he’s apartment hunting, Gotta go to Brooklyn to look at three places. So I drive him to the first and he says wait for me here I won’t be long. Goes into the building and no later than 30, 40 seconds comes back out and says let’s go.
    So I drive him to the second address and he says wait here I won’t be long. Goes in and comes back out in a flash, says lets go. We drive to the 3rd building and the same thing happens. So I says I’ve never seen someone visit an apartment that fast. And he says that’s because I didn’t go up to see them. I says why not. He says no need to, all I had to do was look at the mailboxes in the lobby to see if there were a lot of Dominicans living in those buildings…………………………they like to get into disputes then set the whole building on fire!!!
    I hope my boy Santiago don’t read this, he might knife me.

    btw. Good friend of mine dated Charlie for a long time, there still close. She use to tell me how nice he was to a fault. Calhoun never really recruits riff raff.

  • Dutch Rich

    Hey Lake, where you referring to Overeem or Rob Kaman?

  • LakeShow

    Never heard of Robb Kaman. I’ll google him.

    The Reem obviously rises to the top of the list, but to me, Peter Aerts is the epitome of Dutch Kickboxing… I love that guy.

  • Dutch Rich

    Rob Kaman, 9 time Wold Champion. He’s like the Godfather of Dutch KickBoxing.

  • LakeShow

    Looked him up, surprised I hadn’t heard of him. Sounds like he is one of the GOATS, but Aerts and Reem took Dutch Kick boxing to new levels and that’s what I have seen in my lifetime. I LOVE kick boxing. And the Dutch do it best.
