Kobe Bryant, the best closer in the game, attempts to do just that tonight, close out the season for the Denver Nuggets.
Whether you love him or despise him (like me), you have to admit to the greatness that is Kobe Bryant. He dropped 81 in an NBA Live '99 type performance, has obtained three rings VIA Shaq's jockstrap and managed to keep his wife around after being indicted on rape...the man has found ways to get it done.
The upstart Denver Nuggets have been inspired by Mr. Conference Final, Chauncey Billups, and have been more than competitive in this series, but can they deny Kobe a chance at one more championship ring?
The Denver crowd will be raucous and maybe, just maybe, we can get a ladder match with Vince McMahon at halftime? Possibly, a Kenyon Martin and Mark Cuban post-mother's day cage match? We can hope!
