Ahem, are you honestly reading me saying that 'leaders throw elbows to teammates to make them better'? If that is the case (ie and you're not just flaming) i'll take another brief moment to explain. What I said in my original post (about them persons a, b and c) is that you can easily spot a leader when you see that person do something that normally has an adverse effect on others and yet somehow get positive results. Naturally, leaders do a million different things in a million different cases. The Kobe-Sasha example is one of those cases though, as Kobe's riding him all day-all year long made him consider Braynt a mentor, a best friend (sic), even taking on his facial expressions and the sorts.
Of course, that does not mean that 'leaders always throw elbows', that 'whoever throws elbows is a leader', that 'leaders throw elbows to everybody', or whichever other of the infinite combinations one can make up.
Thanks for reading, and take care.
You know, I had every intention of letting this argument end. I really doubt that I'm going to change your mind about Kobe and that really wasn't my intention in the first place. However, after reading the below article, I can't help but chuckle at some of your impressions of the guy. Without further ado, I present Kobe, the basketball leader of the masses.
The last 4 paragraphs are really fun. Sign me up to play with that guy!
