Well despite the best efforts of the NBA to match up Kobe vs. Lebron James, the Orlando Magic will be playing the L.A. Lakers in the NBA finals. As soon as Game 6 ended the Cleveland Cavaliers season, this year’s MVP Lebron James vacated the court. He didn’t congratulate the better team, but instead just took off. He didn’t even speak to the media.
He claimed he was simply a competitive guy and didn’t want to shake hands with Olympic teammate Dwight Howard. He later sent him a congratulatory text message. Now that’s personal. Well, I think Tiger Woods is pretty competitive and he still shakes hands when he loses.
Learning how to fail obviously takes experience. Unfortunately, but obviously, that experience is the experience of actually failing! Sometimes it is quite good to lose.
