The Lakers beat the Celtics 83-79 in Game 7 of the NBA Finals to take home the Championship for the second year in a row.
Question… Did his daughters really look like Power Rangers? smh….
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)—Kobe Bryant(notes) jumped and punched the air. He did it again, seven years of pent up frustration freed in a fit of joy.
This was the one he wanted more than all the others.
The one to top them all.
One year after failing miserably in the finals against Boston, Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers found redemption. They finished a season they felt was theirs with a 99-86 win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday night in Game 5 to win the 15th NBA title in franchise history.
For Bryant, this was the missing piece from his resume, his fourth championship and first without former teammate Shaquille O’Neal(notes).
“I don’t have to hear that criticism, that idiotic criticism anymore,” said Bryant, the finals MVP. “It was annoying.”

If you can’t get to this year’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, you can at least enjoy trailers for a selection of the films that will be seen at the annual celebration of independent film making. They include the latest work from such directors as Atom Egoyan, Spike Lee, Carlos Cuaron, and other new and well-known filmmakers. One of the films on the roster this year is “Kobe Doin’ Work,” directed by Spike Lee.
Kobe Doin’ Work
For most of us, a day at the office is never accompanied by media interviews and roaring crowds. For Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant, though, this is just a routine part of his job. In the spring of 2008, with the Lakers set to face off against the San Antonio Spurs in a late-season game with major playoff implications, legendary filmmaker and conspicuous sports fan Spike Lee took the opportunity to show what it’s like for a top athlete like Kobe to go to work. With unprecedented access, Lee follows him from his arrival at the Staples Center through team meetings and pregame warm-ups, during the game itself, and at the end of his day as he, his wife, and his kids get in the car to drive home.
