:laugh2: This.

But good work by the two players. Rose looks more like an all around point guard this year (at least from what I watched in a few of the games). I think I would finally take him over Paul if given a choice.

Kobe being Kobe of course. Is the hand still badly damaged, cause I'm amazed that he's shooting a half-decent %age still.

No, he's not. One week doesn't make someone EASILY the best in the league.

+1.

Although, Kobe is the best SG this year hands down and top 3 player.
