Wednesday, first-year Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown appeared as a guest on ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption.” The former Cleveland Cavaliers head man was asked to discuss the differences involved with coaching LeBron James, as compared to Kobe Bryant.
“LeBron is a guy that is more youthful, likes to have a ton of people around him, in terms of his teammates and joking around, almost like a practical jokester at times. There’s a side of him that likes to laugh and laugh with his teammates,” explained Brown.
“Kobe is more businesslike in such that let’s get done with what we need to get done and let’s move on,” added the 2009 NBA Coach of the Year.
In other words, LeBron is interested in camaraderie, goofing around with friends/teammates, as well as winning NBA championships.
In the days since the Giants 29-14 victory over the Jets on Christmas Eve, the once very cordial rivalry between New York’s two NFL teams has escalated into an all out shooting match. Precipitated in large measure by the bombastic talk of Jets coach Rex Ryan, both the players and fans of Gotham's franchises now possess a far greater disdain for one another, then at any point in history.
A post on the official Giants Twitter page (@Giants) provided the latest salvo in this hotly contested war of words.
Monday night’s BCS National Championship Game may have generated tremendous interest in the states of Alabama and Louisiana, but the same cannot be said for the rest of the United States.
The Alabama victory over LSU drew a national rating of 14.0. This figure represents the second lowest viewership level in the 14-year history of the BCS. The 2012 rating was down eight percent from last year’s Auburn vs. Oregon matchup in Glendale, Arizona.
The lowest rated BCS National Championship Game remains the 2002 Rose Bowl battle between Miami and Nebraska.
The highest rated BCS game was the legendary 2006 Rose Bowl involving Texas and USC.
