Are we supposed to praise Kobe for essentially forcing Shaq and Phil out? Oh, great for the Mamba , he orchestrated a situation which allowed him to be as selfish as he wanted , and made Smush Parker feel like crap everyday. Sweet , take 40 shots a game , and drop 81 on a terrible Raptors team. Duncan would never do that. I have no idea how you think it's some kind of grand achievement.
