If you didn't see this last night you better have been dead or in jail (and even in jail I hear they have televisions, though this might have been after lights out...I digress). Anyway, I got to see this game at Cooter Brown's last night with some local media folk and a completely packed bar. Though Kobe Bryant got the MVP this year, I think it's safe to say Chris Paul has one (likely more) in the future. For now, he'll just have to settle for 1st team All-NBA.
And if you think that I wasn't just a little bit excited that the Hornets lost last night and thus assured they'd return here for a Game 5, then I've done a terrible job of portraying how fun it is to cover these guys.
