MVP weighs in on NBA's MVP
In May, Kobe Bryant received the 2007-08 NBA Most Valuable Player award, after leading his team to a 57-25 record and the 2008 NBA Finals, which begin tonight.
The Los Angeles Lakers guard was also the NBA's leading scorer during the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons, including an astonishing 81-point performance in January 2006, the second most in NBA history. However, with his first MVP award, Bryant has attracted the attention of one WWE Superstar who thinks Kobe is an impostor -- SmackDown Superstar Montel Vontavious Porter -- MVP.
"[Bryant is] only considered the best player in the sport of basketball," MVP stated. "I'm multi-faceted. I'm the best in every sport -- basketball, football, boxing -- whatever. I've proven that. I'm better than everyone at everything. That's why I'm the highest-paid athlete on SmackDown."
In September 2006, then-General Manager Theodore Long and MVP agreed on a lucrative contract, one which Porter earned from being pitched as the "most talented free agent in the game." With his cocky attitude and in-ring prowess, MVP quickly climbed the ranks of WWE, defeating the likes of Kane, Ric Flair and Batista, among others. Porter also captured the United States Championship, becoming the longest reigning U.S. Champion in WWE. Now, however, the Ballin' Superstar wants to enforce that he will always be MVP.
"[Bryant] needed a bunch of writers to tell him he's the NBA's MVP. I am MVP, and I don't need a bunch of geeks to tell me that." MVP continued, "You see, he's going to lose that distinction next year to another wannabe. I always and forever will be the most valuable player on SmackDown, and the highest-paid athlete in sports-entertainment history."
