    I know I won't be surprised. But oh well. I doubt Kobe will lose any sleep over it while he lies atop that bed of millions and three rings and the phone numbers of every hotel clerk in Colorado on his cell.

    I hope he doesn't get it. I'd love to go into the playoffs with an even more motivated Kobe.

    Yea, I don't care if he gets it or not. I'd take a Lakers championship any day over Kobe getting the MVP. I cheer for the team, not the player. That said, he does deserve it this year (and deserved it in years past). With all the injuries that we have gone through this year, it is crazy that we are still at the top of the conference.

    You are correct. Had Kobe not have his issue in Colorado, there wouldn't be as many Kobe haters as there still is today. Kobe would have won the MVPs easily over Nash and would still easily win it today.

    But it's because of that, Kobe has to face an uphill battle big time. Not only with the fans, but with the media as well. The media doesn't know ANYTHING, and I don't see why it's them who gets to vote... but they're definitely fans of the game as well... So if the fans hate Kobe, they'll hate Kobe too.

    I probably still sound bitter, but it's because of the Kobe trial that forced the NBA to fix the officiating between the Lakers/Pistons in the 2004 Finals. It was so one-sided and I couldn't remember anything that pissed me off as much as that. Detroit was allowed to play aggressive hack and slash Defense, while the Lakers were constantly called for touch fouls. It happened so much that the Lakers couldn't play Defense even if they wanted to. Thus resulting in what looked like a easy series win by Detroit. And most of the Lakers community knew at that moment... that the NBA did not want a potential rapist (at the time) to be a champion.

    But that's all in the past. Back to the topic. If Kobe doesn't win the MVP though this year, will the voters for Chris Paul be able to explain why Kobe didn't get it? What more does he have to do? He was clearly the MVP over Nash and Dirk the past few years. And if this MVP race is considered "as close as ever", then something is clearly not right.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    This is terrible. The Lakers were outplayed by the better TEAM that year. The Pistons played great basketball and the Lakers didn't. Simple as that. Shaq was playing zero defense, Kobe was forcing shots, Payton was worthless, and Malone was hampered by the knee injury earlier in the season. Not to mention the fact that our bench was nothing special.

    The finals that season were not "fixed".

    The Pistons killed the Lakers in that series.

    And really, a Laker fan whining about the refs? Come on.

    I knew you guys would look at it that way. The NBA is never fixed! Tim Donaghy is a legit ref.

    I'm not trying to argue here. It's what I'm bitter about, and always will be. If you ever get the chance to re-watch the NBA Finals of that year. I'd like a good explanation of why we got constant touch fouls in every situation and the Pistons were able to hack and slash.
