oh yeah - if we're talking disses then there's certainly that. I still would think that a portion of that is about escaping accountability. If he wants to express his dislike for this or that, and still take a man's helping of the blame, then it wouldn't bother me. But it seems that every little mention of his failings gets avalanched by an acknowledgement of circumstances and other people's actions which he finds "disappointing".

On another note - this praising of character is a little ridiculous. Is that another diss at Bosh? If so what of all the times he praised Bosh's character? Does this element of character really mean fuck all? If he truly thinks so then that is a little worrisome, and if he is just promoting an idea that he hopes we will attach ourselves to, then he's a fucking cynical little bastard.

Here's an idea - tell us you need to see results and give us an indication of how you hope to achieve them and measure them.
