Can you believe Kobe Bryant has won the NBA finals with LA Lakers…without Shaq? Where are the skeptics now!!!
Posted June 15, 2009on:
For every Lakers fan who believed this day would come again…I applaud them. The support has always been overwhelming and never faded. The dynasty may once be dazed but today they’ve showed the world what it means to wear the purple, gold and white! None more so than Kobe Bryant who probably wanted it more than anyone else. The parade is about to begin. Here are five reasons why today’s Lakers parade is extra special:
- PHIL JACKSON – If anyone still questioned him being the greatest coach ever in NBA, well they can save their breath now. With 10 NBA titles under his belt, Phil Jackson’s ‘Zen techniques” have now taken him ahead of almost all there is to achieve as a coach in NBA.
- KOBE BRYANT – Kobe probably had to do more to win his fourth NBA title than all other three titles combined. He was labeled as a spent force at the start of the season. We all knew he could bring it..but he brought the house down, almost taking the Lakers single handedly to the title.
- BEST PLAYER – As the season progressed, all the talk was about Lebron James and if he could go all the way with the Cavaliers. When it came to play offs, the papers now talked about a dream clash between Kobe and Lebron, and if the ‘young gun’ could teach a thing or two to the ‘fading star’. Well, that never happened and the unstoppable force that is Kobe Bryant shredded the tabloids to grab his first NBA Finals MVP.
- SHAQ – Shaquille O’Neal leaving LA Lakers was once considered the death of a dynasty. That myth has been quashed now with Lakers winning the 2009 NBA title but what we would have loved to see was Shaq in a Lakers shirt dealing with Dwight Howard in the finals. The fireworks would’ve been spectacular!
- CELTICS RIVALARY – The pain every Lakers fan felt in 2008 finals must be easing now. Having to bear a season with Celtics as champions is not the best thing for Lakers fans. But today, its all behind them. They are the NBA 2009 Champions. Kobe is back to his best and the new crop of talent looked more and more promising with each passing game.
I guess every Lakers fan would have their own specail reason to celebrate the Champions…You are more than welcome to post yours. The future seems bright for LA Lakers…is the best yet to come?
