"I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas
That's why Reke Evans and about everyone else in Sacramento is so kick of him.
look at what Evans had to say about him:
sources:"Yet there was rare dysfunction at the wrong time, as well. Nocioni and Evans exchanged words during an official timeout midway through the fourth quarter, with the rookie taking exception with the veteran's play. Nocioni – who took just two shots in eight minutes through three quarters – took four shots in a span of 2 minutes, 44 seconds. He missed three of the attempts, with his final shot at the 8:39 mark an errant three-pointer that led to a Westbrook layup and six-point Thunder lead.
"We were in the game, and you come down and take bad shots?" Evans said of the situation. "That's not team basketball. Coach didn't say nothing, so I thought I had to step up (and say something)."
and I honestly don't think you have seen Nocioni playing much lately (in fact I am 100 % sure you haven't watched him at all since The Kings have only had 2 National Televised games this year). So take it from someone who's watched most of the Kings games this season. Nocioni is playing horrible, and every time he is on put on the floor, he has to be sent to the bench almost immediately because of either his horrible shot selection or he PATHETIC defense.
I mean, He can't even make it out of the bench of one of the worst teams in basketball, so he shouldn't even be playing in the NBA, he would probably be a Super Star in China, that's for sure.
