Anyone see the love-fest Shaq and Kobe put on before their game at The Staples Center tonight? I kept waiting for them to pull a Magic-Isaiah pre-tipoff kiss. They didn't quite go that far though. Kobe put on a show once again, knocking down jumpers at crunch time in the 4th quarter with Gary Payton and Dwayne Wade in his face. Sure, I’ve got a man crush on Kobe, but straight up, the dude is the best player in the NBA and after he carries this Laker team into the playoffs, he deserves to win the league MVP.
