Kobe Bryant has a complete a-hole persona on the floor. He bosses his teammates around, takes control of games when he feels he needs to, and he calls out teammates on a regular basis. It’s all part of that “killer instinct” so many says he has. Bryant believes Howard has a lot of great tools, but he wants the young center to be more of an a-hole like him. “Shaq was a goofball...
