timezerofive i like your attitude, and haters will always be haters.
Even Bill Simmons from ESPN, a notorious Kobe basher, can't deny how great this Kobe has been. Bill Simmons even voted Kobe for MVP.
We just spent three weeks arguing about the 2006 MVP Award, which was the perfect vehicle to separate two groups of people: Those Who Understand Basketball, and Those Who Need To Pull Their Heads Out Of Their Butts. See, LeBron and Kobe were the only two acceptable candidates; they meant more to their teams than anyone else and submitted two otherworldly statistical seasons.
