You could apply this quote to half the teams in the NBA right now (Lakers, T-Wolves, Magic), but you're right. It takes a special kind of ineptness to get called out personally by the Commish. Of course, you can hardly blame the guy for lashing out, considering he had to hear about Zeke's sexual harassment suit while he was in the middle of dealing with the Tim Donaghy scandal.
Was LeBron busy? Or Ron Artest? Or (since he never plays anyway), Paul Shirley? Click Here (nba.com) Despite the fact that Kobe is a douchebag, I'd still take him over Magic Johnson returning for more playoff commentary. What a travesty.
