The point is Kobe isn't even a good player to coach. Phil Jackson had nights where he wanted to light himself on fire with kerosene.

kobe motivates himself by feeding off of negative energy... That works for him, but he cant expect everyone to thrive under those conditions...

Dwight is annoying with his joking and smiling, but thats who he is.... what Dwight needs to do is leave jokey sh*t in the locker room. He needs a nastier attitude when he steps on the court..

i find that ironic coming from someone who is a terrible team player, deemed uncoachable, plays outside the offense 95% of the time, takes terrible shots, and is a known chucker.

He isn't the greatest leader to but say he has never motivated anyone? Seriously?

That is just incredibly neither here nor there. Irrelevant. You can't motivate someone who doesn't want to be motivated. The best motivation is self motivation. That is who motivates Kobe is himself. Kobe would not respond well if he had a prick of a player telling him to ****ing shoot it or rebound the ****ing ball. That isn't leadership. That is just being a jackass.

When he talks about running into a bus, that's the worst feeling for Kobe. He wants to win. He wants to be around winners. He might not be a great leader, but he knows he needs his guys to battle and fight, and that '08 Lakers team had Gasol being exposed by Perkins and Garnett, Vladimir Radmanovic and Odom unable to keep up with guys like Leon Powe having the game of his life in Game 2. The late, great PJ Brown had key plays for the Celtics that outhustled the Lakers. Even Sam Cassell, visitor from another galaxy, was able to outshine Farmar and Vujacic.

Kobe has to motivate Dwight. He sees the talent in him. He wants him to succeed as his teammate. He also doesn't want Dwight to be weak and soft and mentally not ready to dominate the court. NBA is cutthroat. It's no-boys-allowed, and that's what Kobe's trying to teach him. It's not about what Dwight is comfortable doing, like he says. It's about pushing himself to become great and Kobe isn't going to settle for any less. It's Kobe's way of trying to motivate him. He's doing whatever he can. He admitted that he feels like an idiot sometimes looking for Dwight in the post, but he's trying to build Dwight's confidence.

It's anybody's guess how this will all work out. Dwight's future is ultimately in Dwight's hands (and his camp people, God knows what they're telling him is his best interests).

Now the shoe is on the other foot, Kobe wants to push Dwight's buttons and make him more fierce. Imagine if Dwight ran to the cameras and talked sh*t about Kobe chucking 20+ shots a game? Laker stans would be livid. Hypocrisy at it's finest.

I'm surprised to hear anything like this as opposed to him throwing Dwight under the bus. Might actually be improving his leadership skills...

No, the priceless part is Kobe gave himself a nickname. I've never heard of anyone giving themselves a nickname. Pathetically priceless.
