What do you make of this little article by Paola Boivin over at AZCentral.com?
For those of you who don't want to click, she's rehashing a quote by Amare Stoudemire in the NY Times saying Kobe Bryant should be at the top of the list of MVP candidates.
Is this just Amare's way of saying he's tired of talking about the MVP vote? Does he want people to stop talking about Steve because he thinks he should be at the top of his game? Or is this his way of smoothing over the comments he made earlier saying that the Lakers would be an easy opponent in the first round?
You make the call!
