    Kobe is great because of "Jellybean" Bryant, his father, the LaSalle star. He grew up living in another culture. His mother is never mentioned. She must have been very supportive and loving. That being said, the game in Tinseltown was "scripted". Has it been that long since Shannon Anderson went in for a winning layup in the NBA Finals against the Bulls only to see Scottie Pippin "slap the backboard" and vibrate the ball out of the basket? The Bulls then went on to rally and take both game six and game seven against Malone and Stockton. The Jazz may have the integrity of Andy Griffith but they still are considered to be from "Mayberry" and "not ready for prime time" and the selling of "pretzels and beer".

    Kobe is not just a great player; he is a warrior. Obviously, his injury increases the chances for the Jazz making the playoffs.
