EG Blog: The Gr8 Deb8, Kobe Bryant for MVP

Clublakers.comAnalyst IMarch 11, 2008

Okay so this one’s getting out of hand with the media at the moment.

Lots of people taking sides and opinion split on who will land the MVP, and, perhaps more importantly who’s the better player.

Before this year Kobe was often selected at the games greatest talent but not the MVP. Why? It really came down to two factors; initially he was paired with Shaq and that was often the reason why he didn’t get the awards (certainly a finals MVP should have gone his way at least once).

Secondly, the Lakers flat out didn’t win enough games for the award to go his way.
