Kobe Bryant scored 23 points and was the NBA Finals MVP. But this was a team effort for the Lakers. Derek Fisher hit two big 3-pointers. Pau Gasol pulled down 18 tough rebounds. Sasha Vujacic hit a pair of clutch free throws in the fourth quarter.

Lakers coach Phil Jackson said Ron Artest was the MVP of Game 7. He scored 20 points and hit two 3-pointers, but it was his defensive presence that made the difference. He played a big part in Paul Pierce’s 5-for-15 shooting night from the field.

It was Bryant’s fifth NBA championship, tying him with Magic Johnson and Derek Fisher for the most in Lakers history.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
