Lakers won..'with effort'!

(April 27, 2007) NBA Playoffs 2007: Game 3 - Los Angeles Lakers vs. Phoenix Suns

It was a close game but the Lakers won! Kobe summed up Game 3's 95-89 win over Phoenix perfectly, saying the team stepped up and finally gave a complete effort, speeding up the heat. Bryant said, "It was effort. You can go over execution and X's and O's all you want. What you have to have is effort."

The Lakers won by Kobe's last 6pts., total of 45pts. (the highest points of the game). Now that's what I'm talking about! And just recently, his jersey no longer has the #8 attached to it, it's #24..since he said that he wanted a new number for the second half of his career, and that 24 was his first H.S.number (..and the story goes on). Although his jersey number has been changed, he's still one of my (first - all time) favorite NBA player..Go Kobe! \m/
