When Second Place is Not Good Enough

I was listening to Kobe Bryant interview on CNN sports and from his comments, I have to say being a pro athlete is difficult. While for recreational runners like us we are happy to have a good time, for the pro athlete taking second place is not good enough

LA lakers had just lost to Boston Celtics (131-92) in the 2008 NBA championship and even before laker’s players had swallowed the pain here was Kobe speaking to press.

The media guys can be insensitive: this is how they opened the interview, “Kobe how does it feel to be here”

Kobe Bryant “It sucks”

His patting shot “second place means you are the first loser”

Better luck next year L.A Laker’s fans
