    Yawn. Keep attacking those arguments we haven't made. I watched all five games, thanks. We didn't get robbed; we got beaten. Badly, I might add. The refs don't put the ball in the basket last I checked.

    And like I said, after the gifts we got in 2002, Laker fans have nothing to whine about.

    And the better team still won the series Donaghy was reffing games in last year. Just like Pistons-Lakers.

    Blaming the refs/official/umps is always the last excuse for a fan in denial.

    The Lakers got killed in a 7 game series. There's no excuse.

    Get over it.

    Kobe deserves the MVP, but I wouldn't be surprised if Chris Paul got it

    FWIW, why Kobe instead of Garnett? Who's had a bigger impact than KG?

Not to mention the fact that our bench was nothing special.

    The finals that season were not "fixed".
    Yeah, that memory burns in my brain. What I remember most about that series is that every damn game (it seemed), the Lakers could not get any early lead. Every single game the Pistons were out of the gate up 5 to 10 points. Insanely annoying.

    I honestly think that it's ONLY between these 2. Time is not on their side anymore, not that Kobe or KG is going to retire next season, but Paul has many more years to come. I hate to say it but I believe whoever doesn't win it, isn't going to win one at all.

    If only Kupchak had dealt him to Chicago when the deal was on the table.

    Maybe then the Lakers could have won their Division and finished the season as the #1 seed in the West.

    Oh wait...

    I would love to see KG get the MVP, that would be hilarious.

    He and Karl Malone, the only 2 MVPs in NBA history afraid of the ball in crunch time.
