Negativity Not A Path To Success conquest4ever81 Points Member Joined: Sep 2, 2017 Messages: 2,136 Likes Received: 644 Jan 29, 2020 #1 Kobe was a not only a hard worker but was driven by positive thinking. Certainly he would not be pleased with all the negativity directed at Coach Clay Helton by many on this board. Detractors scoff at the positive thinkers as "sunshine pumpers". It was not simply talent but the right attitude that lifted Kobe in his success. Perhaps keeping this in mind will give the Helton haters pause.
