Yup, he did it. Best player in the league for the 5th year in a row, but the first time to get the award. Good work Kobe and the lakers.
I like this quote...
"Mr. Bryant, since you keep saying that this is a team award, I'd like to know if you will be buying your teammates gifts."
--Lakers teammate Luke Walton on Kobe Bryant winning his first MVP award.
Kobe Bryant Averaged a team high 28.3 points per game to go along with 5.4 assists and 6.3 rebounds a game. He led his team to the #1 seed in the tough as ever Western Conference.
He is averaging 34.3 points per game in his last 6 playoff games.
Go Lakers and Go Kobe!
