Lack of communication between Mike D'Antoni and Kobe Bryant.

It was reported a couple of days ago that Kobe Bryant was leaving the country for additional treatment on his right knee.

What wasn’t reported is the fact Kobe didn’t inform his coach of the transaction.

“Kobe not telling Mike D’Antoni tells you something about what Kobe thinks of coaches, and also Mike’s status,’’ said one NBA head coach. “Now if that were Phil Jackson, I would think Kobe would have told him he was going.’’

In a perfect world you’d like to have your star player and head coach communicate on a daily basis.

Unfortunately, that’s simple not the case here.
