Steve Nash has not won the MVP yet, so Kobe should not be taking offense to rumor. If Nash does win it, I expect Kobe to take his game to another
level. I remember back in 1995 when the Rockets met the Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. David Robinson had recently won the regular season
MVP over Hakeem Olajuwon, but in that series Hakeem abused Robinson, dominating him and often making him look like a fool. It was almost as if he was
saying, "You're the MVP?"
I watched the end of tonight's Spurs-Kings game. All I have to say is: What were the Spurs thinking on that last play? Tim Duncan had been great all
night long. With San Antonio up by one, why didn't they get it to him down low? He would have either scored or gotten the foul. I don't have any
idea why the Spurs had the ball in Ginobili's hands at that crucial moment.
The Lakers played some incredible team ball tonight. Kobe only had 17 points, but Smush Parker had 18, Luke Walton had 17 and 10 rebounds, Lamar Odom
had 15 and 17 rebounds, and Kwame Brown had 13 points and 11 rebounds. If the Lakers can get team contribution every night like that, they can win
