Kobe will join an elite group if he gets finals mvp this year.
He will be one of several players to win league MVP and Finals MVP in his career.
Others to do it.
MJ, Magic, Kareem, Wilt, Hakeem, Duncan, Shaq, Bird, Moses Malone
So no matter what anyone says having won a Season MVP and Finals MVP will put him in the elite players of all time group. It is just about total resume after that.
NOTE: Russell should be there as well.
