Much respect to Kobe and how he left it all on the court. Although LeBron James will win the MVP because he is the NBA’s cash cow, it was Kobe that willed a team not worthy of his presence to the playoffs. With an overrated center, an old beat up point guard, and Metta World Destruction Kobe still willed his team to a 7th seed. Not the 8th seed like all thought. Although they got swept, there will be questions about the future of the team, for one season we saw someone not only say what he was going to dom but actually go out there and walk to walk. I salute Kobe Bean Bryant and the real MVP of the NBA this season.
