He's not a fan

I know this isn't a sports-related blog, I don't really care about the NBA, and I'm not usually the type of guy who sticks up for overpaid pro athletes, but bear with me here...

In the wake of last night's NBA Championship win, T.J. Simers of the Los Angeles (!) Times wrote a bilious screed against the Lakers that has me wondering whether or not some of the players ganged up and gave him a swirlie in the locker room at some point. Case in point:

How many times were we told that Kobe wanted this more than anyone else, his teeth gritted as if there was nothing more important in the whole world than a basketball game?
Um, the man is a professional basketball player. What do you think his main focus is supposed to be? Yeah, there are more important things in the world, but I think I can forgive the man for wanting to win.

Update: Speaking of things more important than winning a basketball game, be sure to check out the post below this one. I hate to push it down.
