Is KP Gloating?

John Canzano's article on Sunday about KP caught me a bit off-guard.  Apparently John has talked to some GM's around the league who really don't like Pritchard.

Said one Western Conference GM of Pritchard on Saturday: "(Bleep) that guy, he's walking around rubbing everyone's nose in the deals he's made and even with all those lottery players his team is still not in the playoffs.

"There was a line of guys in the league waiting to sign D. Miles if Memphis didn't."

 

Instead, other league executives are asking stuff like, "Did that (bleep) really coin (the phrase) 'Pritch-slapped' by himself?"

 That is some big time hostility there from a couple of executives from other teams.   Canzano discribes the NBA's GM's as being broken up into two different groups,  Old School and New School, and it appears that the old school crowd doesn't like what KP is doing, and according to Canzano, KP has been rubbing his peers noses in it. 

This is the first time I have read about KP doing anything that would considered rude or antagonistic toward his fellow NBA GM's.  Canzano did mention this could be from KP's new school way of being a GMs.

The new guys are young, and dress well. They live well. They incorporate computer programs in their scouting process. They're outspoken, they're creative, forward-thinking and progressive. Sometimes that stuff plays obnoxious to outsiders. Sometimes it just is. And when you threaten to win big -- the Blazers are eight games over .500 and are a potential player in trade/free-agency -- well, that pretty much makes you the grand pooh-bah of the new-world guys.

So, what does Blazers Edge think about this? Personally I can see why other GM's might be jealous of the early success KP has had in his career as a GM, or they might me jealous of the owner he gets to work with, who opens up opportunities they can't match.
