Utah coach Sloan: Lakers star Bryant is like `Miss America'

On Sunday morning, in front of a throng of reporters, Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan made headlines when he compared Lakers star Kobe Bryant to Miss America for his ability to "get whatever he wants."

I'm tired of everybody calling Kobe the 2nd best player! Who's the first? Lebron? This is a put-up or shut-up league and status is earned. Let Lebron get ONE ring, let alone 4, before he gets any crown! Kobe is going for 5, Lebron is getting worked by lil Rando, do something before you claim that number 1 spot. Last I checked Kobe got a ring last year and Lebron didnt even make the finals. Go get a 5th MRI Prince James and shut up already!

It's the miss America comment that has people upset but sloans right, Kobe draws attention because hes that deadly; and despite comments on his age etc they know this and double or triple him. But, he dishes to the open man either way when the team collapses on him and that's what Sloan meant.

So in essence, Kobe does get what he wants , like leading his team to victories.
The Lakers will repeat, Kobe and the Lakers are dialed in; the path to the championship goes first through the defending champs and right now, when it matters, the lakers are the best. Utah, OKC and whomever can say whatever they please to soothe the pain of a loss however, the Lakers are still standing, still dominating,while the whiners are deep sea fishing!

Go Lakers! Here comes the 5th Kobe!
