What I love most about Lamont is his inability to be generous. Any praise given to someone he considers a contemporary, a rival, and he pisses on it as hard as he can. I suspect this behavior springs from resentment, low self-esteeem, and over-competitiveness. I like Lamont, I like dueling with him, but I worry about his emotional health; it can't be salubrious to be so insecure about your own abilities that you have to denigrate any praise directed to a " rival."
