Kobe Bryant 2010 NBA Finals MVP

With the ultimate NBA champion Bill Russell personally giving him the trophy named in his honor, Kobe Bryant took home his second consecutive NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award after leading the Los Angeles Lakers in becoming just the seventh team in NBA history to win a championship after facing a 3-2 deficit.

In the deciding Game 7, Kobe made up for an otherwise poor shooting night (going 6-of-24) by grabbing 15 rebounds and going 11 for 15 from the free-throw line. He averaged 28.6 points in the series.

Last year, Kobe has proven he can win without Shaq.

This year, he got revenge against this almost same Boston Celtics team who embarrassed him in the 2008 NBA Finals (prompting Shaq to ask Kobe how his ass tastes). The Lakers too finally win a Game 7 against its bitter rival after four previous failed attempts.

By winning his fifth championship ring, Kobe broke a deadlock with Shaq and Tim Duncan and further cemented his place in the pantheon of NBA greats.

Moments before hoisting the 2010 NBA Finals MVP trophy, Kobe said,

“Let’s go for it again.”

His Lakers team already got a three-peat from 2000-02.

Looks like the Black Mamba is ready to strike for a second run.

    That game was a classic. I think it was the most thrilling game in the series. The Celtics just simply gassed-out in the end.
