    Yeah this was a weak pic for the cover. But at this point, it’s the words not the picture that matters for me :)

    Kobe hugging both trophies while holding up four fingers would have been more appropriate and the title is just lame. No wonder I get all of my sports news online instead of publications.

    I love the cover. Sorry, but pics of holding trophies or jumping up and down are extremely cliche at this point in time. This is a look of a man who’s completed a mission, a look of pure satisfaction, a look that says he’s now enjoying..his moment. The story is really good as well.
