I don't see how anybody thinks Kobe's actions were helpful in that sense. And then for him to wallow in self-pity afterwards, about what he had to go through, when he creates so many of his own problems, is just obnoxious.

The dude should have confronted Kwame and told him to get ready. Instead he wanted to make sure a message was sent - poor Kobe was not happy with the scrubs he had to play with. Of course if you're Kobe that might just be peachy, and I guess I might be failing to fully understand that - happily.

Again, nothing more too it. Then again, LX could convince himself that Kobe is the cause of global warning, and he'd defend it tirelessly. Because if you think telling the boss that a co-worker isn't pulling his weight near a business deal deadline is wrong, as opposed to after the deal has already fell through, may god (or lack thereof) help us all.

The only thing I agree with is that he shouldn't have told the story. At least that Kobe hate is justified.
