Just arrived in Charlotte in advance of Hornets media day and stumbles upon this. For as much unrest as there has been out here, I'm seeing lots of people praying and having some meaningful dialogue.

Lastly, Kevin Garnett to me in 2014 on working with younger players and what he believes today's game is lacking: "The fact that I was able to help guys progress, I've helped guys become men. I've helped guys communicate and taught them how to communicate to others [who] didn't necessarily understand [them]. I think our game is lacking a bit of that. We seek approval from each other by being friends and guys work out together. If that's the times, that's the times. But true competition comes in, ‘There's a winner, and there's a loser.' And I don't know anybody who wants to be a loser, who's calling themselves a wimp…I'm not saying you've got to hate a guy, but if you do, I understand when you're between the lines. And 'hate' is a very strong word, so I would use the word 'dislike.' I get it. To me, that's alpha. That's leadership. A leader is going to show more in his actions versus his words."
