NBA Playoffs: Go Lakers!!!

I love the SPURS but I want the Lakers to win!

  The time has finally arrived for NBA MVP Kobe Bryant to rid himself of the label that he can’t win without Shaquille O’Neal by his side.

Bryant has the Los Angeles Lakers on the brink of their first NBA Finals since 2004 when they were slaughtered in five games by the Detroit Pistons – that was Shaq’s final season in Tinsel Town.

For the past several years, especially this year, Kobe Bryant has worked REALLY hard to change his image in a sincere and genuine way. He has done a lot of public service work and a series of good deeds for others. As a player his 81 point game, leading the league in scoring and the Lakers making the playoffs has redeemed him to most fans.

More evidence of his maturation might be found in his decision to change his player number from 8 to 24. The number 8 is the symbol of eternity, the time most teens think they are invincible.  One day at a time, or 24 (Kobe’s current number) hours, is how we usually learn that life is lived when we mature. It’s possible that is the reason Kobe changed his number, though he has said he does not plan to reveal why he selected 24.  

Kobe Bryant really should have been the MVP this year.  Yup, Phil Jackson has made a huge difference and he should get “Coach of the year,” but Kobe Bryant has done everything that a coach and a fan could ask for!

Go Lakers!



  1. Thank you so much for your comment… I want the Lakers to win, too.

    I’m really hoping to see a Lakers-Celtics 7 game, fight to the finish, just like in the days of Magic and Bird…
