Reader Comment of the Day: "I don't have a problem with Drew saying that it's cool sometimes to sit back and watch the game. He's right. Sometimes when you're an observer, you can see the nuances and trends in a game that will help you learn how to be more effective when you're back in the thick of things. Don't you think Kobe does the same thing when he's sitting out? (And yes I know he's hardly ever out, but my point remains the same.) I'm happy he's taking the time to learn. And heal." -- justanothermambafan
