I hate to do this but I have to agree what Kobe said:

“People need to leave D-Will the [expletive] alone on this,” Kobe Bryant(notes) told Yahoo! Sports on Thursday night. Bryant and Williams have competed in the Western Conference for years and won an Olympic gold medal together for USA Basketball at the 2008 Beijing Games. “Leave him alone. He doesn’t deserve to be at the front of this. That’s horse…. He’s a great competitor. He works his butt off. He’s always been a great leader. He’s clutch, performs under pressure. Enjoy the 23 great years that Jerry Sloan gave them, but don’t put this on Deron Williams.”

Cool.

Kobe understands Deron, Deron understands Kobe.

I can't think of a more appropriate comparison. Especially as regards powerplays. And hey, Kobe probably threw the 04 Finals, and just gave up a few years ago against the Suns.

Kobe Bryant? Really??

Not the best source of opinion in my book, as he's going to side with his fellow egotist players 20 times out of 20.

Well, as long as they aren't teammates of the same, or higher, stature in the league.

It's amazing to me how people talk about Kobe's loyalty to the Lakers after all that went down with Shaq, then with the idiotic and absurd whining about the lack of "talent" on the Lakers after Kobe helped to create the ugly outcome.

If Lakers' fans should be thankful to anyone, it's Jerry West. And David Stern. The Gasol gift came just in time.

Kobe is smarter than the average Jazzfan.


D-Will did nothing wrong. Sloan is a good guy and a great coach, to be sure, but he is not a god. Deron is allowed to disagree with him. We do know Deron was not even in that meeting, he had nothing to do with this.

Get off it deron haters.

fallenchicken, so, should we just dispense with coaches altogether? Let the players call all the shots and run the practices? You are wrong, in the Jazz system, Sloan was the "god" of the system. Larry Miller understood this and backed Sloan at every step. Deron thinks he is smarter than Sloan and wants to run it his own way? Now is his big chance. I suspect Deron will find out the hard way that calling your own shots all the time is not as easy as it may seem. The success or failure of the franchise is essentially on him now, and he'll have to put his money where his mouth is.
