Sportsmanship is a lost art in todays game. Too many guys are buddy buddy with each other and there’s also a faction of guys who just routinely hate on others and are isolated. Kobe and Dirk don’t need to be the best of friends to show mutual respect between them and that’s what sportsmanship is really about.
