"The locker room is policed by the superstar, never the coach."

Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski writes that Kobe, not Phil Jackson, will keep Artest in line: "The locker room is policed by the superstar, never the coach." (I don't agree. Although they are an increasingly endangered species, coaches like Avery Johnson with the Mavs and Larry Brown with the Sixers did lay down the law.)

The Wizards don't have to worry about a hothead like Artest, but the team has suffered at times from a lack of focus. Last season's young team would have really benefited from someone setting a more serious tone, but we saw that Caron and Antawn lack the authority or the temperament to do it.

With next season's veteran team, do the Wiz need someone to "police the locker room"? I've been a big defender of the young guys, but I think they probably would benefit from some tough love. Can Gil be a more vocal leader? If not him, what about Flip? Cassell?
