^ You are most certainly desribing, to a T, TAFKAWBS from the 2013-14 season. I really never heard much about Angel of Death being that way on the wolven bench last season, but I’m sure he was at least thinking he could be the man elsewhere. That part is basic human nature 101, amplified by the AAU culture and modern “my kid’s shit doesn’t stink” parenting.
I honestly don’t mind a kid striking out for what he perceives as a better opportunity elsewhere. These are unpaid athletes, after all (YMMV about that, but I buy the exploitation argument to some degree). But I certainly DO draw the line when it comes to undermining the coach and stirring shit within the locker room, which is why I am still pissy about TAFKAWBS and the handful of people who still romanticize and pine for him on occasion.
