Kobe is tough with his guys too so Kwame is probably not a good fit in LA. He should go somewhere where he can be treated like peaches, like Phoenix. Stevie will never yell at him.
^^ Yea but im sure Kobe has never called any of his young players a "Flaming F@ggit" either(MJ)
agreed there is a substantial difference between being hard on someone, and being a complete richard, if you catch my drift. Both my high school and college coach were tough, heck my college coach is one of the most demanding men i have ever met when it comes to his players. But neither of them rendered personal attacks against me, neither one of them patronized me, neither one of them was rudely critical. I recieved more butt chewings then i can count and have been singled out, gripped at, screamed at, threatened to get thrown out of the gym etc. but none of it was a personal attack. Now i dont know if kobe is like that or not, but i know Jordan wasnt...
Are you kidding me? MJ Smacked Steve Kerr!!! he made Kwame cry in practice....a 7 ft teenager, MJ made em cry like a baby, it was in the newspapers here in DC.
MJ is notorious for blowing up on his teammates/players, and at times getting physical with them.....dunno if you knew that or not.
