    I was reading this truehoop article on Lamarcus Aldridge and wondered how many guys in the league have to be handled with kid gloves, requiring special treatment/attention or they're in the tank mentally. Being sensitive isn't necessarily a bad thing, Pippen was a very sensitive player and for the most part used it as motivation for the good of the team (his quitting vs the Knicks in the playoffs being the exception). Here's the Aldridge article:

    Obviously we have one of those guys in Tmac, his cousin comes to mind as well. I was just wondering what other guys in the league are like this.

    Can't blame Aldridge. Players hate when they are iso-ed by teammates.

    I think the cryers are pretty sensitive.

    This year it was Big Baby.

    Playoffs two years ago: Andrei Cryalenko.

    Uh, you might be forgetting a few other "exceptions."

    NBA players have let it out, too. Y'know, when things aren't going their way.
