Sad thing is...as bad as he plays, he's still the second best offensive big man we have...
Every team can have a bad apple. As long as everyone else on the team is working, Tyrus won't be a problem. When he "infects" someone else is when a move has to be made.

I have been angry about TT being here for the last year, its okay if someone is self centered but good to some extent, but when your that terrible... people got at me ealier in the year when I went ona a rant about trading him as he does not fit into our culture change, I didnt want him anywhere near MKG or JT. Its too late now tho, and I can guarantee he isn't going to take Dunlaps coaching well, it is all too strict and neat for TT

That last shot he took from about 10 ft out was terrible... and he was wide open. He took the same shot earlier in the game with the same results. Glad Dunlap realized he needed to get him the f**k outta there after that. I was really surprised he put him in down the stretch to, but I'm guess it was to compensate with having shorter guys in Hendo, Gordon and Walker in there agst Indy's taller guys.

I've never been so pissed than when I saw him run back and beat the Indy guard (think it was Hill) to the key, then ducked down as he laid it up over his back without making an attempt to block it. Another pay in the 4th, someone got called for a foul and he ran across the lane and jumped as the foul was made like he was going to block the shot but he threw his legs out and flailed like a total spaz.
I remember what Tyrus looked like when everyone saw all of his potential with Chicago and his first year here... This isn't mental, it's not physical, it's behavior... He wants out and he's making it clear. And I wish we would've used the amnesty on him because he's not going to quit until they give him his out.
i hate, actually i love, to say i told everyone so three years ago when we traded for him and two years ago when we signed him to his contract. dude is a bum and always has been.

Towards the end of the game he got subbed out...the whole team was standing....Tyrus was yelling back at someone on the court with an attitude. Refs or player IDK. But then Matt tried to tap him on the shoulder and Tyrus jerked away aggressively from him(Matt would go on to catch up and tap him on the butt anyways). Then he threw a fit and slammed down on the bench and grab a water bottle which he slammed on the ground causing water to go everywhere. He was also sitting while the whole team was up cheering.
Earlier in the game he had problems too where he was thrown a towel by the equipment guy and Tyrus threw it back at him. Then he went thru the warm ups himself and messed them all up for no reason. He acted liked REAL asshole tonight and I won't be surprised if he ends up either kicked off the team/suspended/benched soon.
Very happy we won tho...one of the most exciting atmospheres ever at TWCA. GO CATS.
Yeah, I noticed all those things too, ammo. I honestly wondered if he would attack someone. But I also noticed he was the one who ran like nuts to get the gameball at the end and take it back to the locker room which was great. He is what he is....nuts.
