i'm curious to how hakeem, robinson and timmie wouldn't be considered 'alpha males' in any context. because they're nice and respectful? they got to their level of greatness by kicking the shit out of their opponents. all three were very demanding vocally and controlling on both sides of the ball. i think this is where nash, amare and hill lacked. they didn't demand and control, they just played.
