    Curt Schilling on watching Kobe from courtside the other night...........

    “From the first tip until about 4 minutes left in the game I saw and heard this guy (complain to) his teammates. Every TO he came to the bench (ticked), and a few of them he went to other guys and yelled about something they weren’t doing, or something they did wrong. No dialog (sic) about ‘hey let’s go, let’s get after it’ or whatever. He spent the better part of 3.5 quarters (ticked) off and ranting at the non-execution or lack of, of his team. Then when they made what almost was a historic run in the 4th, during a TO, he got down on the floor and basically said ‘Let’s (expletive) go, right now, right here’ or something to that affect (sic).

    “I am not making this observation in a good or bad way, I have no idea how the guys in the NBA play or do things like this, but I thought it was a fascinating bit of insight for me to watch someone in another sport who is in the position of a team leader and how he interacted with his team and teammates. Watching the other 11 guys, every time out it was high fives and ‘Hey nice work, let’s get after it’ or something to that affect (sic). He walked off the floor, obligatory skin contact on the high five, and sat on the bench stone faced or (ticked) off, the whole game.

    “Just weird to see another sport and how it all works. I would assume that’s his style and how he plays and what works for him because when I saw the leader board for scoring in the post season his name sat up top at 31+ a game, can’t argue with that. But as a fan I was watching the whole thing, Kobe, his teammates and then the after effects of conversations. He’d yell at someone, make a point, or send a message, turn and walk away, and more than once the person on the other end would roll eyes or give a ‘whatever dude’ look."

    Schilling is a douchebag. I hate having to root for that arrogant prick.

    Funny how that arrogance didn't show through until he got to Boston.

    But, what's so wrong about what he said about Kobe? I mean, if you're not having fun while you're playing, and if you're potentially ruining someone else's fun, then why play?

    Sports have always been about having fun, at least when I played it was. Even though it becomes a job in the pros, it should still be fun. I try to have fun when I'm at work, don't you?

    No reason to be a whining, yelling ass bitch to your teamates.

    This was posted at Lakersground on Monday.

    ManRam doesn't give a fuck what you have to say either, Curt.

    Here's another gem from Curt:

    "He's a cheater. He cheated on his wife, on his taxes" - Schilling on Barry Bonds

    Great pitcher but he talks too much. If your team's being blown out and about to go down 0-2 in the NBA finals, and you are a leader, you are going to light a fire under your teammate's asses.

    But here's the part from his blog that didn't make it around the blogosphere:

    I heard that Barney Frank and Paul Pierce have been romantically linked. Can anyone verify?

    The only thought I ever put into Paul Pierce is how the Sixers passed him up to pick Larry Hughes in the draft.

    True, true. I can think of some more egregious oversights in the draft however.

    Too bad Hughes is so injury prone and never made it to the Lakers. Big, quick combo guards flourish in the triangle.
