Tommy Heinsohn Doesn't Like Phil and Kobe

16

(HT Slamonline) Heinsohn was very unhappy that the Celtics lost, and displeased, as well, that certain people got to celebrate. "Kobe (Bryant) and Phil Jackson, I didn’t want either of those guys to win," he said. Why the dislike for Bryant and his coach? "Well, first of all, I got tired of listening to Phil Jackson create the atmosphere around the referees to watch this and watch that," Heinsohn said. "(Celts coach) Doc (Rivers) didn’t do any of that stuff. And Kobe, on every play, if he didn’t score he was bitching about getting hit. OK? The two most protected players in the league don’t need protection - LeBron (James) and Kobe.

And he was shooting elbows at the defender to get him out of the way. "Now you know why I dislike him." Click on the headline to read the full story
