It just shows you how much love KOBE has for the game where he pours his heart and soul to it. Kobe worked so hard over the summer and to have it crashing down on him those last few minutes of basketball was hard to swallow. And concerning those tears, are a sign of maturity and it takes a real man to be able to shed those tears. If ever the NBA needed a spokeperson for the NBA well Kobe just proves it over and over again. When the NBA was on NBC and their moto was " I LOVE THIS GAME" they should just show that shot of KOBE with tears... That should tell you how much he LOVES this GAME, the LAKERS and Los Angeles.
I don't understand why people are saying the DYNASTY is over. The whole team is intact. SHAQ and KOBE is not going anywhere. The LAKERS are only going to improve in the summer (if BUSS spends cash)
A DYNASTY is over when its SUPERSTARS has left. Much like when MAGIC, BIRD, JORDAN etc. when they left. SHAQ and KOBE is still here and are at their PRIME!!! so tell me how can the DYNASTY be over?
Like SHAQ's rap song goes " YOU CAN'T STOP THE REIGN" you can only hope to slow it down.
KOBE the real MVP
