So this post on the official Pistons blog quotes Michael Curry, Detroit's new coach, saying that Kwame Brown "didn’t use anything as an excuse" for Kwame's lackluster career when Curry and Brown met. Curry goes on to say: "“He took responsibility for himself and, really, once he did that, for me it was easy. That’s one of the biggest things – to get athletes to hold themselves accountable."
If I were to discuss the matter with Curry, I'd warn him that Kwame's always talked a pretty good game. It's a lot easier for Kwame to say that he cares and is responsible for himself than it is for him to actually play like it.
Let's just say that if Kwame plays any differently than the shrinking violet who has underwhelmed fans and teams at every stop of his NBA career, I'll be quite surprised.
