Can Kobe Get a Ring Without Shaq?

The debate begins as Kobe and the Lakers rallied to beat the Denver Nuggets in a amazing playoff run. They have defininatly earned the opportunity to play for the right to be called the NBA's best. The question still remains, can Kobe win it all withoout the BIG MAN Shaquille O'Neal? Last year the Lakers put up little resistance against a loaded Boston Celtics bench.

Kobe and the Lakers are playing at the top of their game with the bench players stepping up in game 6 against the Nuggets. If they play like they did in game 6 I believe that Kobe will finally silence the nay-sayers and get that elusive "fourth" ring. Just like Michael Jordan once said after getting the chance to play in the Finals "It don't mean a thing, unless you got that ring"!

Kobe Vs. LeBron?

Is it me or does it seem as if the NBA already has picked it's teams that it wants in the Finals?! Don't get me wrong I love Kobe and respect LeBron for his talent, but when I am watching sportcenter it seems to be all the rage to see how all the talk is about Kobe and LeBron, what about Orlando in how they knocked off the defending champion Celtics or the cinderella Denver Nuggets team. They are looking past these two teams. If this is the case just get it over with and let the Lakers play the Cavaliers now and skip the Conference Finals. Just a thought.
