MSU’s Sidney Looks For A Fresh Start

Mississippi State basketballer Renardo Sidney says last year “was the worst year for me ever.”   Now — with the help of ex-NBA’er John Lucas — Sidney is looking for a fresh start.

Not only did Lucas help Sidney dump weight during a two-month training camp in Houston, but he also worked with the big man regarding his attitude.

“Athletes are treated like royalty long before we need to be, so what happens is we quit and don’t have anything to look forward to because everyone is treating us like the stars that we’re not,” Lucas told The Jackson Clarion-Ledger.  “I think (Sidney) kept running to opportunities that kept treating him like (a star) instead of settling down.”

Sidney agrees that Lucas did as much for him off the court as on it.  “Every day he talked to me about life.  It wasn’t all about basketball.  He was teaching me how to keep my cool and don’t worry about what people say.  Stay in the gym and stay hungry.”

“All stars can be jerks on the court,” Lucas said.  “But it’s about how you react off the court.  Don’t be a jerk off of it.”

Next season we’ll see if Sidney fights with teammates, voices his displeasure on Twitter, or simply shows himself to be a malcontent.  If so, then maybe there’s no getting through to the talented center. 

But if he does turn over the proverbial new leaf, then MSU fans might need to write a few “thank you” notes to Lucas.
