Kobe Bryant MVP
Kobe Bryant was considered by many to be the next Michael Jordan. While there will never be another Jordan, Bryant has dazzled NBA fans since he entered the league.

This week, Bryant will win his first NBA Most Valuable Player award, according to the Los Angeles Times. He has been considered by many to be the best player in the league for a while, but now Bryant will have the award that proves he was the best this year.

Bryant almost did not even play this year for the Los Angeles Lakers,
the team he grew up rooting for and helped already win three NBA Championships. The off season of controversy led into the season, and something clicked with him and his teammates along the way.

The Lakers finished with the best record in the Western Conference and have not lost a playoff game yet. They swept the Denver Nuggets in the first round, and defeated Utah in game one of their semi-finals series o0n Sunday.

Bryant will add the MVP award to a growing number of personal awards the superstar has accumulated over the years.
