Kobe had Odom helping him out all year, and they had a semi easy schedule. Lebron had Jones helping with his shooting, Varejao rebounding well down low, and Ilgauskas posting up, those are some good pieces. Don't even try to say Dirk didn't have help. Howard, Terry, Stackhouse, and Harris were huge help all year. McHale has surrounded KG with garbage, which has kept the Wolves out of contention.
