    nash is a terrible individual talent, all he does is pass the ball for his open teammates. nash strictly relies on OTHER PLAYERS for his own success. if his teammates would miss all those shots, nash would get sent into the D league. kobe, on the other hand, doesnt have to rely on his teammates for success.

    Aaron (West Laf, IN): Alright, JH...let's hear you're latest MVP talk. Any changes? Simmons says Bryant (and Billups is #8 on his list?!)..but Stein says Bryant can't win it because he does silly things like elbowing M.Miller and costing his team 3 games. give us your status...

    John Hollinger: I put Bryant a distant fourth. My top three guys are LeBron, Dirk and Wade. A month ago Wade looked like a home run to me, but he struggled down the stretch while LeBron and Dirk dialed it up. Choosing between LeBron and Dirk, I have to go with LeBron just because he's played so many more minutes -- basically, he's providing the same production for a greater duration.

    Larry (Omaha): John, I heard Mark Jackson say yesterday on ABC that Kobe Bryant would go down as the greatest player ever, ahead of MJ? Does Mark need to have his medication adjusted, or does he have a valid point?

    John Hollinger: I couldn't disagree more. This was the best season of Bryant's career, and he wasn't clearly the best player in the league. In fact, up until two years ago he wasn't the best player on his own team. So while Kobe's a great player, the MJ comparison is seriously pushing it.

    Rob (Los Angeles, CA): Were you one of the many ESPN writers that picked the Lakers to miss the playoffs? Isn't it fair to say that the Lakers have exceeded everyone's expectations this season?

    John Hollinger: Yes, I was, and that's why I think Phil Jackson should win Coach of the Year. He got more out of guys like Smush, Walton and Mihm than I thought he could.

    Shawn (Ann Arbor): The talk about Kobe vs. MJ got me wondering: anyone with eyes knows that Jordan was one the best if the #1. Do all the stats you put together say the same thing?

    John Hollinger: Yes, Jordan was the best by a mile.

    Sanchez (Santa Barbar, CA): Despite being a Laker fan, I can see how Kobe could not be the MVP. But two things bother me, one, even if he "helped get the teams best player traded" that was two years ago. What does that have to do with 2006? Number two is defense, I think of James and Dirk as subpar defenders while Bryant is a superior defender. Isnt defense half the game?

    John Hollinger: It was two years ago ... but it's still materially affecting the Lakers, isn't it? As for defense, that's the best card in Kobe's hand. LeBron and Dirk aren't as bad as you make them out to be, but Kobe is clearly better.

    Anthony (Chicago): How is Lebron the MVP? He's a terrible deffender and until his team picked up a legit second late game option, inFlip Murray, he couldn't close a game out. How can such a bad deffender win MVP in a year with so many better options?

    John Hollinger: Because the "late game option" Flip Murray was on the end of the bench for one of the worst teams in the league, and didn't become a "closer" until LeBron kept finding him for wide open shots. As for the defense, he's not Bruce Bowen, but he's much better than you're giving him credit for.

    lol, i remember that....laker radio was all over him the next day.....but he's really picked up his game [the # of threads brahman has started recently hailing him "the untradable asset" can attest to that] and so have kwame and smush...they are starting to look like a team...yeah kobe still piles up points, but other players are capable of helping them win if kobe only scores 29

    "A team that likes to play with each other. A team that relies upon Kobe Bryant."

    that's all i needed to read to know that this article is fucking dumb.

    all is not well in laker land until the lakers are an elite team again. no one said kobe's not going to score 30+ a game without shaq. they said he couldn't make the team elite by himself. and have they been wrong? no.

    the writer should be fired for being so naive
