Luke talks on his NBA blog about Kobe being the MVP! Nice to see support from his teamates.
NBA.com: No doubt, the NBA MVP race will not only come down to the wire but may be one of the closest races of all time in terms of the voting. There are so many deserving candidates. You see what LeBron’s done from the start of the season and Dwyane Wade is playing at an amazing level, carrying the Heat on his back.
I don’t get a vote (I’m not a member of the media) but if I did, I would cast it for the reigning NBA MVP, Kobe.
I’ve been teammates with Kobe for six seasons now and I continue to be impressed with all aspects of his game. What I see every day isn’t just the skill level which is off the charts, but the day-to-day commitment, the work ethic, the leadership, the mental approach to the game.
You don’t think Kobe would run away with the scoring title if he wanted to? C’mon. He could have buried that awhile ago. His goal is to win the championship, pure and simple.
As talented and as skilled as he is, Kobe continues to grow and evolve as a player. He knows we’re at our best when he gets other people involved, letting guys make plays, dishing assists, making sure we’re in rhythm. By not placing a premium on scoring, Kobe knows his sacrifices make the team better.
