Kobe Bryant is maniacally devoted to winning and basketball. That made him an all-time great NBA player.

It also makes him an unbearable youth-sports coach.

Bryant edited the Instagram post to add, “meaning she enjoyed dance more than ball which is fine. Now? She eat sleeps and breaths the game.” That makes it better, but it’s still not good. Putting “winners” in quotes like that for a kids game is a real jerk move.
