The ether comes early in Kevin Ding's latest Lakers column:
MIAMI – What's wrong with you if the Greatest Teammate Ever is fed up with you?
Well, what's wrong withis he still isn't trying.
And for– who has spent close to two decades in the NBA making anyone who tried hard next to him look better than ever and who said during his own MVP heights that if everybody worked as hard as him, he wouldn't even be in the league – not trying is infuriating.
Right, if you watched the game you probably remember this moment: In the third quarter of Sunday's Lakers-Heat game Dwight was slow to move toward a pass from Steve Nash, it led to a turnover and an easy bucket for Miami, and Nash--the "Greatest Teammate Ever"--started yelling at Dwight in the middle of a game on National TV.
Read more from Ding on what it says about Dwight and Nash, but most importantly, it gives us an excuse to re-run the best Sports Illustrated cover of the past 12 months.
This HAS been fun.
