lakers fans yelling mvp during the game may actually be hurting the team. maybe its just encouraging him.
anyone, this isnt meant as a kobe bash, just an observation.
Absolutely not. He knew the MVP was out of reach by the time he started that streak. Even if he scored 50+ in every game for the rest of the season the Lakers don't have a good enough record for him to get serious consideration. Kobe knows this, has even said so in a few interviews.
