Mitch Kupchak Has Fire in His Belly, or Somewhere

Nestled at the bottom of ESPN LA's article on Jimmy Buss having no intention of ever trading Kobe was this delectable little nugget:

There weren't warm-and-fuzzy feelings toward Stern, however, when the three-team trade between the Houston Rockets, New Orleans Hornets and Lakers was vetoed on the eve of training camp, blocking the Lakers from receiving Chris Paul.

"Basically, we had a deal and the commissioner didn't think that it was a good deal and he has every right to veto it," Buss said. "It shocked us. I was in (Lakers general manager) Mitch (Kupchak's) office when that happened and I was ducking from things that he was throwing against the wall."

We knew that Mitch had some fire, but it's nice to see it in action, if only second-hand.
