I think that the NBA's most valuable player, as well as most exciting player, is CLEARLY Kobe Bryant of the LA Lakers. Others may be the most important on a winning team, help a previous loser win (such as Elton Brand of the Clippers). But Kobe is it. Matt Steinmetz of Fox Sports Bay Area disagrees with me and thinks that it should go to Chauncey Billups of the Pistons or Steve Nash of the Suns. Perhaps guys in the Bay Area are jealous of LA because the Lakers have been so dominant for 30 years over the Worriers.
Yeah Manhattan!! Sunday night they beat Iona to win the MAAC regular season title and have earned a berth in the MAAC Tournament Semifinals in Albany, NY, near Francesa's favorite place of Saratoga Springs, NY.
