Larry Hughes Complains About Playing Time After His Team Won By 43 Points

Suppose that Larry Hughes actually deserved to play big minutes in an NBA game at this stage of his career.  Suppose Larry Hughes isn't the bad professional basketball player that he's been since 2006.  Suppose he wasn't making nearly 14 million dollars this year as a result of a massive five-year contract he signed with the Cavaliers back in 2005.

Even if none of this is true, Hughes' sense of timing is an epic fail.  It's one thing to complain about minutes when your complains aren't merited.  It's another thing to do that after your team won by 43 points and your replacement scored 41 points in the game prior to that one.

"It's not a good way to play a season, going back and forth," said Hughes, who did not play in the Knicks' 132-89 victory over the Pacers Sunday night. "This is my second or third time now (getting benched). It's getting old."

I'd think that Larry Hughes' shot selection and terrible play also gets old, but that kind of goes without saying.
