On the day Chris Paul turned 23, Kobe Bryant won the NBA’s MVP award. And well deserved from my biased Laker point of view.
Paul finished second and could have won the award judging by his amazing season, unmatched point guard play and leading the Hornets – the Hornets?! – into the Western Conference semifinals.
Kobe meanwhile continues to be the best player in the game. And like all our heroes, he has his flaws.
Michael Ventre, the MSNBC columnist, has a well written, accurate view of Kobe, pros and cons.
