There you have it ladies and gentlemen, curtain call for the NBA Finals and guess who ended up with all the marbles. Adam Morrison. No real suprises though, just Kobe Bryant proving once again why he is the best player of his generation. He’s garnered comparisons to the immortal six-time champion Michael Jordan and he deserves to be mentioned in the same rarefied air as His Airness. Lamar Odom had an excellent all-around finals giving real creedence to his versatility. It’s a shame his efforts will go unnoticed as the media has already fawned over the Spaniard Pau Gasol. Gasol is getting most of the credit for keeping Dwight Howard away from the basket but if it weren’t for the efforts of Odom, the Lakers could be looking at a game six. Odom is a lost soul though, his efforts forever overshadowed by flashier teamates.
In addition, several unlikely players now have championship rings. Would you beleive that Sun Yue now has more rings than Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, LeBron James, and Carmello Anthony combined. Adam Morrsion, the hairy kid from Gonzaga, now has more championships than Allen Iverson. Didier Mbenga (pronunciation unknown) has a title while two-time league MVP and future hall of famer Steve Nash wanders aimlessly, still searching for his first ring.
