You did it Kobe, you finally got that 7'1 monkey off your back. It only took a giant Spanish man, a streaky 3/4 who almost got dealt for Jermaine O Neal last season and Trevor Ariza to push your Los Angeles Lakers squad over the top.
I'm not trying to rip your achievement, Kobe, don't worry about that, but what I am trying to say is cherish this ring because it might be your last. Same goes for you, Mr. Jackson.
The competition in the NBA has arrived. It comes in forms of royalty, superheroes and guys chosen after Darko. The East is something to be reckoned with again, we (in reference to me being a Nets fan) aren't the JV league anymore. The talent pool in both conferences is deeper than ever, and we all know what 2010 might bring.
Kobe, I think you've got one season left before your venom is rendered sterile and the Black Mamba goes out of commission. Let the rumors swirl about how happy you may be in LA, maybe a change of scenery will do you good.
I'll throw this out there, too: you may want to try and keep Bynum healthy, because a certain big man you may be familiar with might just make one last stop in Cleveland to help that other puppet win a ring next year.
Anywho, congratulations to the 2008-09 Los Angeles Lakers on a tremendous season and terrific run to the championship... maybe Adam Morrison can be creepy on the court for you next time.
