Can We Say Its Kobe Time?!

ORLANDO — With the Lakers up 3-1 against the Magic, it’s time to start thinking about who should win the Bill Russell NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award.

Right now, only one name comes to mind.

Before we get to that name, however, let’s crack open the history books. The NBA has been holding this little end-of-the-season shindig since 1947, but has only handed out Finals MVP hardware since 1969.

Here’s the interesting thing about that first Finals MVP award: It was Russell’s last chance to win it. And he didn’t. But another legend from the losing team did.

Russell, then the Boston Celtics player-coach, had already led the Celtics to an amazing 10 titles in 12 seasons. But now, the aging Celtics dynasty was on it’s last, weary legs and faced their longtime West Division nemesis: the Los Angeles Lakers, who had acquired Russell’s longtime foil, Wilt Chamberlain from the Philadelphia 76ers before the 1968-69. Teamed with a dangerous Lakers tandem of Elgin Baylor and Jerry West, the Lakers won 55 games and looked to capture the franchise’s first title since moving west in 1960.

Things looked good for the Lakers as they won the first two games in L.A. But the Celtics stormed back and won the next two in Boston. Back then, The Finals was 2-2-1-1-1 format, and through the first six games, each team had won on its home floor. With Game 7 in Los Angeles, then Lakers-owner Jack Kent Cooke was so sure of victory, he had thousands of balloons prepared to drop from the rafters of The Forum to celebrate the Lakers win.

But Russell and the Celtics got wind of the plans and, inspired by the Laker organization’s hubris, won Game 7 108-106. Russell gets his 11th and final ring, but West, who plays most of the series on a torn hamstring and averages 26 points wins, the first MVP award and the car that goes with it.

The prize is of little consolation to West, who had then never won an NBA title and suffered his sixth loss in six Finals tries to the Celtics.

“I’d just as soon give up that car if it would have meant winning the championship,” West said. “I think it’s insignificant when your team doesn’t win.”

So, that first Finals MVP remains irony-infused. West is still the only player from a losing team to win the Finals MVP and was denied a chance to win an NBA title by the team led by the man whose name is now permanently on the award.

Strange.

Fast forward 40 years to the one name that immediately comes to mind for the 2009 Finals MVP: Kobe Bryant. Who else?

In essence, much of the focus in this Finals has been on Bryant. Just check out this sound bite from the ABC ad promoting Game 5 (Sunday, 8 p.m. ET): “With Kobe Bryant one win away from a championship …”

Not the Lakers, Kobe. There’s pressure on everybody in The Finals, but for Bryant it’s double and much of it is self-inflicted. Much has been made of his desire to win a title without former teammate and three-time Finals MVP, Shaquille O’Neal. A lot has been said about last year’s soul-crushing defeat to the Boston Celtics in six games.

Bryant’s on a mission for a ring, and he will more than likely get a trophy out of it, too. Like the NBA championship, the Finals MVP, right now, is Bryant’s to lose.

If Bryant does win the MVP, it will be the 10th time a Laker player has won it. West, as you know, won in 1969. Wilt won in 1972. Magic Johnson was the youngest player ever to win one in 1980 when he was 20. He added two others in 1982 and 1987. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar became the oldest player to win a Finals MVP at the age of 38 in 1985. James Worthy won it in 1988 and then there was O’Neal, who won three consecutive awards from 2000 to 2002.

It’s a rich Finals history for a team that is on the cusp of winning its 15th title in 30 attempts and one that Bryant will more than likely add to some time in the next few days.

Kobe is too focused… That’s the only way to put it!  this is the premier leader of a championship team because he has the heart of a champion. There’s no quit or let down when it comes to him and winning.  With the series 3-1 it looks bleek for the magic. Where’s david blane when you need him!

Kobe Vs. Lebron….

Posted: May 22, 2009 in Sports

on-court-kobe-bryant-vs-lebron-james-8

Ok, so let me get this right. Nike wants a Kobe Bryant vs. Lebron James NBA Finals; Vitamin Water wants it; I’m beginning to believe that even the NBA wants it… and now YOU? Say it isn’t so, please.

I understand that people want to see two of the best players on the planet go head-to-head for the jewelry. But the truth is, how often will they actually play one-on-one? Let the records show that The Black Mamba is a Shooting Guard and King James is a Small Forward. The Black Mamba can play two positions at a high level while King James could play all five positions easily. Wait, for the young’ns, I’d like to give you a quick history lesson.

Your Kobe vs. Lebron is my Jordan vs. Magic. And while many people compare Lebron to Michael Jordan, Lebron is built and plays more like Magic Johnson. Magic was the ultimate Floor General and could play all positions as he once accomplished his rookie year when the Lakers Center, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar went down. Kobe is the closest to Michael Jordan as any player will come for quite some time. But even when the Chicago Bulls played the Lakers in the 1991 NBA Finals, Scottie Pippen was the one that neutralized Magic, not Michael.

Back to the future… no matter how prolific and “unstoppable” Kobe Bryant is on the court, physically, he doesn’t match up to Lebron James. I know what you’re thinking… I’m just playing with you; I really don’t know what you’re thinking. Lebron James is the anomaly of his profession: 6’ 8”, 260 pounds of pure aggression. And on a fast break, dude is a LearJet 85 tearing the runway apart before lift off. Just doesn’t seem all that fair to me.

Do you know what I want? I know that the Nuggets and the Cavaliers are down 0-1, both losing games that were winnable up until the last two minutes. In my eyes, the Anthony vs. Lebron Finals is where it’s at. Yes, Carmelo Anthony, the only player in the league that could stand up to Lebron without a double team. Yes, the Carmelo Anthony that can score from anywhere on the court and has come into his own during the playoffs. Yea, I know, the same Carmelo that co-signed the “Stop Snitching” campaign, but that’s another story.

I can see the NBA with a stubbed toe scrambling to promote this matchup: Anthony vs. James, guaranteed that one of these Gold Medal winners will grab their FIRST NBA Championship.

You must admit that it has a certain RING to it.

Ethiopia-Former heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield is not ready to hang his gloves up just yet.

He says he will step back into the ring, but this time for charity.

The fight will be in Ethiopia against little-known Ethiopian-born American super middleweight Sammy Retta

Money raised from the fight will be used for HIV and AIDS charities.

“I feel that it’s very important that everybody do everything that’s necessary to bring attention to this cause because if we don’t try to find a cure for this, we’ll be extinct,” said Holyfield.

The fight will take place in July.
