With Lakers beating Phoenix (Kobe for MVP!) today, they made it to the playoffs and I think Sacramento also made it to the playoffs.
That means the pathetic Pacific Division is going to send 4 teams to the playoffs out of 5, in a very competitive Western Conference. Before the season started, this division was supposed to be a dud, with the Clippers and Warriors being the perennial losers, the Lakers massively rebuilding, and the Kings not playing to their real potential of late. But look what happened … !
Of course, I am not sure which teams besides Phoenix will make it to the second round, but to even make it to the playoffs is a big deal.
Kobe Bryant for MVP!!
