it was obvious kobe out performed duncan that year. with the 2 months averaging 40ppg, the all time record 12 threes, the 9 straight 40+ point games, and he was 1st team all defense same as tim
but the better teams representative won mvp because record is worth more than individual statistics
I don't even like Lebron, but he is clearly the better player than Kobe, and deservedly will likely win another MVP this year. Kobe\started the year well, but old legs will change that as the season progresses.
