    Default Kobe's New Challenge for Giannis: Winning a Championship.

    Tonight is the time for plaudits for Giannis' MVP, and next season is the time for heightening the goalpost; Kobe, who challenged the newly coronated MVP to win this very award just two years ago, provided both tonight.

    "Next up: Championship," Kobe tweeted.

    As if the ECF letdown and likely championship elusion weren't motivative enough for Giannis' new challenge, Kobe's mentorial words will likely stoke it further. The Lakers legend did thankworthily motivate the reigning MVP to this position, after all, which Giannis wasn't too coy about.

    "Definitely Kobe; he is the one that started the flame," Giannis said during his emotional speech.

    This new challenge, while not quixotic if last season is any barometer, will obviously entail an even more concerted team effort, and it remains to be seen if the Bucks can preserve, if not bolster, their title-contention chances by re-signing or replacing several valuable players this off-season. But thankfully the most valuable player of not just their team but also the league is sticking around; and if he answers the bells the five-time Lakers champion is ringing, he'll keep his team's title-contention chances with him.

    Will be interesting to see the Greek Freak's continued strides this season, and this new challenge certainly won't go unmentioned the more he knocks on the door of the franchise's first modern championship.

    Giannis' challenge was for Kobe to win a title as lead dog while shooting over 50% from the field.

    Didn't the Bucks blow a 2-0 lead in the ECF? Kinda like Lebron blew a 2-0 lead in the 2011 NBA Finals, right?

    Why is Kobe issuing challenges to superior players?

    My challenge to you is stop pretending to be objective to gain credibility when your Bransvestite spots have already been revealed.

    He did.

    But even if he didn't, the defensive attention he draws and high IQ basketball elevated his teammates far better than Bran.

    Kobe received his doubles and made simple passes that eventually led to open shots. (During years he had an opportunity to win) Keeping players involved makes them work harder on both ends.

    I admit he chucked when he was on teams that had zero chance to win a title.

    Pounding the rock and waiting for bailout assists only works with super teams and NBA meddling.

    When did he do that? Show me. Which season?
