    Apparently, Softbank's Chairman Masayoshi Son is trying to develop some mystique surrounding his newly appointed Sprint CEO, Marcelo Claure. In a recent quarterly results discussion, Son called Claure a "Streetfigher" and said he looks like a "bandit." Perhaps Son is trying to turn him into a "rockstar" like John Legere? If so, it's a strange way of doing it...

    Here's a more direct quote,

    According to the report, Chairman Son is expecting Claure to start aggressively pricing Sprint to help it compete with T-Mobile and the other U.S. carriers. Here's another quote in which Son calls Claure a streetfighter again,

    Maybe it will take a "streetfigher" approach for Sprint to become competitive again. What do you think?

    Until we see some REAL coverage from T-Mobile and Sprint, Verizon and AT&T will be able to continue business as usual, and that means, squeezing everyone as much as they are legally allowed.
