"Soft" is a funny term.
It's used almost exclusively by loud, shit talking players with limited ability and a need to be loud to try to create some sort of image or edge.
You don't need to yell or be mad or bitch to be hard. Winning is hard. Deferring is hard. Working hard and sharing the spotlight to attain the highest of goals is hard.
Amare is a fucking clown. Always has been. Amare is soft.
