Don't like 'em, gotta respect his game
But, in the first four games of the NBA playoffs, Kobe has been THE MAN.
He's not dropping 81 points in a game. Instead, he's getting his teammates involved and because of that the Lakers could eliminate the Suns in five games. Who saw that coming?
Sunday was a prime example. Twice, Kobe had the chance to take the big shot and twice he did. More importantly, he hit the shots.
Meanwhile, Steve "Soon to be the MVP" Nash twice had blunders that set Kobe up to be the hero.
Oh, by the way, how about Dirk Nowitzki for MVP? His Mavs are much better now WITHOUT Nash than they ever were with him.
