Von Wafer Got a Stern Lecture

And he promises to behave from now on: “Rockets guard Von Wafer will be back on the bench and available to play tonight after a meeting Thursday morning with Rockets coach Rick Adelman. Adelman sent Wafer to the locker room in the fourth quarter Wednesday when Wafer protested being taken out of the game against the Los Angeles Lakers. ‘He’s on the team,’ Adelman said. ‘We talked about it and it’s over with. He didn’t like coming out (of the game). He doesn’t have to like coming out, but it’s his job to accept that. This is not a one-time thing. A couple things have happened. It’s not the right time. It’s all about the team. That’s what Von and I talked about. It’s not about individuals. It’s not about me. It’s my job to coach the team. It’s your job to play. I did not like his actions when we’re in an important game in the fourth quarter. Players have to have more restraint than that.’”

    I can’t imagine Rick Adelman giving a stern lecture.

    That’s a bad title, I originally thought it had something to do with David Stern.

    Yes, Horrible title.

    yeah, pretty bad title, although I’m shocked I’ve never actually seen that headline on a David Stern story. seems like it naturally would right?

    Adelman is a pro. I really like his style. He respects players, but he wants them to understand their role (which can be hard for young players, stuggling to get some tick) I’m certain he cleared things up with Von who’ll be anxious to come out and play well in whatever time he gets tonight.

    I still think Von Wafer has the best name is the NBA. Of course, if God Shammgod was still around, he’d be a distant silver medalist.

    Von Wafer sounds delicious.

  • THEY CALL ME LORD INFAMOUS BUT YOU CAN CALL ME SCARECROW

    ANTON THATS REALLY SWEET OF YOU. SHAMMGOD WAS THE BEST. IS HE STILL IN CHINA?

  • Tavoris

    whats disturbing is that Rick Adelman had to lecture a player. He’s probably the nicest coach in the L

    Von is definitely up there in the cool names list(current players only)
    Others I like include:

    Thaddeus Young
    Ramon Sessions

    With Mookie Blaylock and God Shammgod as all time Favs.

    I laughed for a minute at Shane Battier’s comment at the bottom of the linked page. Rafer, indeed.
