Default Article: Lakers' Kobe Bryant is fit to be MVP

Source: Lakers' Kobe Bryant is fit to be MVP

Quote:

Has he ever screamed to the crowd like that? Has he ever flapped his gold jersey like that?

Has cool, calm, drop-top-Impala-driving Kobe Bryant ever shown us so much of himself as he did during that hair-raising, skin-chilling moment Wednesday night?

Have we ever appreciated it more?

In his dozen turbulent years in Los Angeles, Bryant has scored more points and made bigger plays.

But I will stake my press pass on the fact that he has never been a better all-around player than on Wednesday night in the Lakers' 122-107 victory over the Nuggets in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series.

"Brought me out of my seat," said Lamar Odom, speaking for all of Los Angeles.

"Indefensible," said George Karl, speaking for all of Denver.

"MVP!" chanted the crowd even as it filed into the city streets, speaking for all of basketball.

If you saw it, you are still seeing it. If you felt it, you will be feeling it all spring.

The soaring dunks, the swaying jumpers, the slithering passes, the stare at the crowd and the Nuggets and anyone within staring distance, again and again.

Then, best of all, the scream.

He deservs to be the MVP.

I think we should make a campaign avatars: Kobe for MVP and then switch back to this one for the title.

Kobe is amazing. Which came first his talent or the confidence? The MVP award will be a joke if doesn't get it this year. There have been other years that he could have /should have easily won but when the Lakers take the championship there can be no doubt who is the greatest, most valuable player of 2008, not to mention all time.

Campaign of avatars? Great idea. Just let me know if I can help.

Kobe was awesome last night and the fans chanting MVP was great to hear. Kobe is like a kid in a candy store and is proud to be a laker with a talented supporting case around him. Its great to see him believes and trust his players now that MVP.

I think Lakers getting #1 really helped his case. It realy was a toss up between him and Paul and I think by getting the top seed, it swayed a few voters who were unsure of who to vote for. Paul deserves it but so does Kobe. And I think Kobe has really matured as a player bc he was not the same player this yr as he was the past few seasons. His shot attempts were down, and this was before Gasol. He is my MVP

The playoff avatar campaign is in place... we'd love your support.. see the Avatar and Location to the left...

Perhaps after the playoffs, you can do a campaign with the one you have there....
