That is why you can see that Kobe Bryant is the best player in the NBA he carried the LA LAKERS to the NBA playoffs and defeat a Phoenix Suns team which are on a roll thanks to the 2007 MIP Leandro Barbosa and the comebacking Amare Stoudemire.
Nash cannot do it alone for the Phoenix Suns he is not as good as Kobe Bryant offensively and defensively.
nobody is saying nash is as good as kobe...but kobe dragging his ****ty team to the playoffs does not mean anything...where was he in game 1? 1/10 in the fourth quarter? he choked in game 2 as well...marion can have a bad night, as someone mentioned he has a tendency to play a little worse in the playoffs, but the suns can still win...without kobe, the lakers can be painful to watch save for odom and a few flashes from walton...i agree that that the key to the lakers not being humiliated in this series is odom...kobe + odom is killer, but kobe alone wont win a playoff series. sorry guess that got a little off topic from marion...i'll end by saying marion, even on an off night is still a killer defender
