If we take away the drinking and womanizing, does this remind anyone about someone?:

"(Esposito) was also a large personality, a talker, an egotist, a joker, a drinker, a carouser, a womanizer, a guy who would dominate the dressing room, who was in so many way's Orr's opposite number. Espo ran hot where Orr ran cold. Over they years, there would be plenty of stories alluding to an uncomfortable Esposito-Orr rivalry... There was no question, who was the larger, louder presence in the Bruins dressing room - that was Espo's schtick, just as it would be when he led Team Canada... Esposito liked to be the center of attention the life of the party..."

"But there's a truth that applies to all teams in all professional sports: harmony is way overrated. Many a championship has been won with players who didn't socialize away from the park or the rink, who didn't say a lot to each other in any circumstances, whose personalitites naturally clashed, who came from backgrounds that were irreconcilable, who rubbed each other the wrong way, who hated each other's guts...''
