Kobe: 29 PPG (41% fg), 8 rpg, 4 apg, 1 bpg, 2 spg, 4 tpg
How in the world can you argue Kobe over Gasol?? Gasol was EASILY the 2010 finals MVP. That is one of the worst finals MVP snubs in NBA history.
That 10 ppg difference is too big to make a case for Gasol. Even when you look at rebounds Kobe was only 3.6 RPG less while being a guard compared to a 7-footer. Assists? Even. So in the three main stats Kobe has the edge on 2 of them and one of them being a huge gap while Pau's big advantage is Rebounds, but it's not even that big. Also check the performances on the road.
