Much has been made this offseason about what kind of relationship Kobe Bryant and new head coach Mike Brown will have.
Some predict the two will not get along, due to the fact the team didn’t consult Bryant before hiring Brown, and because few believe there isn’t a coach not named Phil Jackson who can harness such a strong-headed superstar like Kobe.
But I wouldn’t hold your breath hoping for a blowup between superstar and head coach this season.
I fully expect Kobe to take the high road when speaking about Brown this season, even if times get tough.
After all, Kobe is too mature and established of a player to go back to the days of feuding with others within the organization, right?
It would be a shame for Bryant to regress back to his younger days and possibly tarnish the legacy he has worked so hard to reshape the last few seasons.
