Here are the compiled video highlights of Kobe Bryant's abrupt takeover to fuel the Lakers' Game 1 win in the conference finals. Basketball professor Bethlehem Shoals calls it "the definitive one-man heroics of the 2007-08 post-season." I'm not nearly so deep. I just go straight to the :37 mark and watch Manu Ginobili get humiliated twice on the same play. Then I do it again. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Hypothetical question: I have a, uh… "friend"… who hates the Spurs more than war or cancer or even homeless people. Should that friend seek professional help? By which I mean, should he hire professional assassins to kill the Spurs?
