I believe the hold the tie breaker against the Lakers with two games left for them and one game for the Lakers.

If the win both and the Lakers win on Tuesday, then H-town gets the #1 seed.

Can this actually happen? I's sure all of you were quite concerned about the next several years in Lakerland back in the summer. I know I was. Now, against difficult odds, Kobe and supporting cast could be together for a few years to come.

This is just incredible to me. I still am not sure we have the toughness this year to win the title, but I hope I am wrong. Nonetheless, I am very optomistic for next year with Ariza and Bynum added to the mix and at full strength.

Go, Go, Go!

We control our own destiny... and Sacramento will come out ready to beat us on Tuesday night... but this is not just a rivalry game and I dont think it's even possible that this team will come out flat.

They know what they have to do and im confident they can do it.

And im so excited about it :)

I think he's playing better than any PG in basketball but I don't think he's the MVP. Kobe should have it and if they were to give it to anyone else it should be KG. The NBA is almost making a mockery of the MVP, starting with all that Nash controversy, now CP. Hopefully they do the right thing and give it to the best player in the league. Of course I would like to see the Lakers in the top spot too, not that it matters too much with as close as the West has been this year.

I'm sorry but I think you are sorely wrong here. While I agree that Nash winning the MVP award was a travesty, there are only 2 choices for MVP in my opinion: Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul.

Kobe Bryant has done everything his critics over the past 2 years have blasted him for. He's made the players around him better, he's become a leader, he's no longer hiking up 30+ shots a gain. Continuing to put up 25+ pts, 5+ ast, 5+ rebs and winning games.

Chris Paul is leading the most surprising team in the league. He leads the league in Assists and Steals, he puts up great points per game while shooting a high percentage. He makes everyone on the Hornets better. Unlike Nash, CP doesn't have players that were previous all-stars to throw alley-hoops to. Does anyone really believe Tyson Chandler or David West would be as good on another team? (see Tyson Chandler on the bulls)

Now a lot of people want to look at Kevin Garnett as MVP because of the turn around of the Celtics. Anyone heard of All-stars Ray Allen and Paul Pierce? KG is a great player, but come on that team isn't exactly missing veteran leadership or talent without him. The only thing he possibly adds is a killer work ethic that spread through the team, but Paul Pierce and Ray Allen possessed a tremendous work ethic before KG became their teammate. Can't see how you can complain about Nash winning the award if you are giving it to KG over CP3.
