Being 6'4 and going 22/12 for your career is cowardly?
Leaving Sota and changing a teams culture while winning a chip and DPOY makes you soft?
Oakley still talking like a 19y/o old goon at his age now
everyone knows kg won dpoy because of that whole mentality thing, not his actual production. people were so obsessed with him supposedly changing the whole culture of the celtics, they handed him the award.
and your averages dont determine whether your soft or a coward or not. bosh puts up solid numbers in toronto but is easily one of the softest dudes in the nba, as was pau gasol. no ones got more "goon" stories behind them than oak. how you gonna let a man slap you in the face and not do nothin? oak was well known as someone who would back up what he said and did, and was well respected for it in the league. unlike kg who literally gets clowned on by dudes half his size. man if i was 7 feet tall, and some 6'3 point guard EVER thought about comin back at me, id be ashamed of myself.
barkleys always been one of my favorite players of all time, and i love watching him on tnt, but ive also known for a long time dude was far from a tough guy. and i also hated how he had the rep for not playing/practicing hard. and that comes from jordan himself.
