ESPN.com’s J.A. Adande polled 15 different participants during All Star weekend in New Orleans about which guy in the league they’d most like to see get a championship ring.
His polling subjects ranged from young stars like Brandon Roy to old vets like Tim Duncan. There were two players who dominated the responses: Boston big man Kevin Garnett and Phoenix guard Steve Nash.
There was, however, a certain self-nicknamed Lakers player who opted not to vote. Kobe Bryant refused to participate in the voting, saying, “If it ain’t us, I don’t care.”
Thanks for playing, Kobe, and may your pinky get slammed in a car door.
I wonder if players were asked which guy they hoped would never win another championship, who would top that list? I’m guessing Mr. Bryant would be near the top.
Personally, being a Philly guy, I’d love to watch Allen Iverson lead any team to a to the promise land. It’s unfortunate it couldn’t happen in Philadelphia, but if there’s anybody who can rock some bling on his finger, it’s A.I.
