Very ugly basketball until the end with guys hitting some 3-pointers. Too much fouling, flopping and brick shooting from these affletes. Kobe goes 6 for 24 in the final game and wins MVP? On the numbers, you could make a case for Gasol for MVP: Kobe28.6 pts, 8.0 rebs, 3.9 asts, .71 blks, 3.86 tos Pau18.6 pts, 11.6 rebs, 3.7 asts, 2.57 blks, 1.85 tos Kobe jacked up 163 shots in the series compared to only 90 for Pau. Pau had as many assists and half the turnovers. Additionally, Pau's rebounds and blocks were outstanding. But, you knew Kobe would win the MVP, and he did. Overall, a very discouraging NBA season. In any given game you were lucky to have one white player out of ten on the floor. When I see ten blacks, I change the channel. We've got NBA now in Oklahoma, and I haven't bothered to go, even though basketball has always been my favorite sport.
