C'mon guys you honestly can't be this lost.
Who makes their teammates better, Magic Johnson or Michael Jordan?

Can you not comprehend the fact that Kobe is a SG, and Nash is a PG...PG's job is to ASSIST their teammates...SG's job is to SCORE. And honestly, with the inconsistant play of Odom early in the year...Kobe had to focus mainly on scoring, and he did that. He also was top 5 in assists among SG's, so obviously Nash makes his teammates better...hence he's the PG of that team, and his job is to "assist" his teammates.

I mean am I off track or something?

Zo is a traitor to everyone. Wade should be pissed, but he's propably not cuz even Wade obeys Kobe's every demand.

Alonso basicly said what seems to be the trendy answer by most current nba players in that they view kobe to be the best in the league. I recall Amare saying something similar aswell as guys like lebron and damon stoudamire saying something similar. Why is it so difficult for some people to understand that Kobe may be the best of the elite guards currently? Vice versa that obviously doesnt mean that Kobe somehow achieves jordan GOAT like status overnight if ever? btw i appreciate the small list of examples i just stated but they are off the top of my head.

In terms of the Heat being stacked, I for one was one of those people that thought that they were a mish mash of players that would not be able to function properly because of what i felt were their clashing skillsets. But Riley did a great job and the Heat basicly got down to playing some hard nosed defense, People keep overlooking the great job Haslem was able to do on Dirk. And wade being i feel one of the smartest players with an uncanny feel for the game took the Mavs D to the cleaners.

Nope, Lakers fans see the things that Kobe has DONE.

meh, he can't dominate against tough teams? the heat needed 6 games to beat dallas while kobe (yeah, him and not the lakers) needed 30-something minutes to drop 62 on dallas that decided the outcome of the game.

jason williams started.

i'm not going to say who's better: him or wade. there were times when he was better than wade and there were times when wade was better. and besides wade's still 3 years old in the league, he'll likely get better. no point in arguing that part (well i'm biased, i think lebron will be better than both of them..heh).

ciao~

and as for who deserved the mvp this year, well that kind of question goes on and on. if you ask me, i think kidd deserved the mvp when he went second to duncan in the balloting as well as shaq and iverson deserving it more last year ;p
