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 werent doing, or something they did wrong. No dialog (sic) about hey lets go, lets 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 Lets (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, lets 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 thats 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, cant argue with that. But as a fan I was watching the whole thing, Kobe, his teammates and then the after effects of conversations. Hed 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."
