I don't know that we need to see Kobe dissected that much, and I don't know that Kobe will love it either. I understand that this is just what Phil does, but I don't know why Kobe is constantly fair game, or why he takes semi-shots at a guy who got him 5 rings.
My thoughts as well.
At the very core of primates is a need to compete and define their status within a group. Once one accepts that truth logical deductions as to the motivations behind actions are inevitable. I cant help but to think the issue Stabber has with Kobe is his inability to dominate his will. To impress upon him his vision . Or to BELIEVE that he actually did impress his will upon him. I find this odd as.....
...based upon 85% o what Kobe has said publicly regarding Phil it seems Phil did just that.
. Kobe has stated that his leadership style was influenced by Phil. That he grew up in Phils system. Clearly Phil left an imprint as any "father like" figure would after a decade plus of teaching in a position of authority. So the only reason he would keep going back to the "take semi shots at Kobe well" is if A) Phil is insecure in his relationship with Bryant B) Phil is vindictive , malicious, hyper competitive in his own right and dishonest (i should add i know of no practicing Buddhist who has expressed himself in this way. Perhaps his blend of Buddhism with the teachings allows Phil the mental justification to act in this way. After all..he can say he isnt truly Buddhist when challenged on that) or C) He wanted to sell more books.
If his repugnant actions were "Only" due to the desire to sell more books you really have to ask yourself....how genuine of a relationship could Phil POSSIBLY have with Kobe Bryant or ANY player he has coached
? I don't care how Kobe himself feels about it or what he states publicly. I'm judging Phil on his actions alone. This "tell all" **** is weak (as pro ball players have stated in the past). if you cant give a compliment without qualifications i.e. without it being backhanded then shut your damn mouth.
He better hope that Karma doesnt return in the form of cancer again.
