I'm sure the foreword by Magic will be fantastic. 

Look forward to Manning up in Spring 2017 

That said, I'm interested to see what it entails.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Byrons steps to success

 

1. Be on one of the best teams in history.

2. Coach a stacked team and have Kidd run it.

3. Reference as often as possible that you won championships.

4. Ignore any innovations in basketball after 2004.

5. Respond to any reporters question with some variation of "Man Up".

6. When all else fails, fold your arms.
7. Folding your arms NEVER FAILS.. only players do. 

8. If folding your arms fails, read step 7

How can he write a book when his only line to motivate people was to "man up"?

There no pure haters or pure fans.  It's just the ignorant and the observant.  The pure haters and pure fans are the ignorant, while the rest are the less observant or the more observant.

Anyone can write a book about the tools to success that they have developed.  I mean, literally, anyone.

9. Folding arms the proper way is a lost art and can be a humbling experience if not done correctly

Chapter 10: When I Played With Magic...


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!
