He also said Kobe never said "teach you how to be a winner"
DH: “He didn’t say anything of that sort. People twisted a lot of stuff that he said. But in my personal opinion, I’m a winner. I’m a winner because I’ve been playing for nine years when the average career for an NBA player is three years. I’m a winner because I made it to the NBA from a small school in Atlanta, GA, with 16 people in a class. I’m a winner because I’m succeeding in life. I’ve had problems and I’m not better than the next man, but I’m going to push myself to be a winner when it comes to winning a championship. But he didn’t say anything like that and a lot of people twisted what he did say.”
1. Whoop de doo, congratulations Dwight. He sounds like that kid who insists it's never his fault when he gets in trouble. So by his definition, anybody that stays in the league longer than three years is a winner?
2. No, you made it into the NBA because you were gifted with incredible physical ability, not because you overcame the adversity of a small school. God forbid, the people who actually came from bad situations (Luol Deng) must have had it easy.
