Well. Kobe got the team he wanted. He got rid of the people who were keeping him from being a star. This was his team, and he was going to show the world. So how did his season end?
With Bryant "resting an injury" rather than leading his team as the Lakers were eliminated from the playoffs officially.
In the meantime, Shaq and some kid named Wade (no, not Wade) are headlining the best team in the East. Wade and the Heat got the job done with the big fella on the sideline himself, for the record...if you didn't read the link.
Kobe now has some free time to watch those all-important early major league baseball games.
When does football start?
