As great as he is, it has always been amazing that Kobe Bryant only has one MVP. In fact, the year he won, he barely edged out Chris Paul. He has been the best player in the league most of his career but always gets overlooked. Not sure why that is. Neither does Mike Brown because it’s happening again this year.
“Mike Brown obviously believes Kobe Bryant should be among the MVP candidates, but not just because he coaches him. He has a laundry list of reasons why the Lakers star should be considered, along with Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, Miami’s LeBron James and San Antonio guard Tony Parker, for the regular-season honor. For instance, the coach pointed out, take Bryant’s age and the fact he is leading the league in scoring and minutes … ‘Obviously I’m biased like most coaches would be about their guys,’ Brown said. ‘But I still believe that Kobe should be one of the top guys, the top three mentioned. His name should be bantered around.’
