f**king A. It's been such a pleasure watching him the last 16+ years.
There's some symmetry to this. In Game 4 of the 2000 Finals, Shaq had fouled out and this was the pivotal game in the series. Kobe was playing on a sprained ankle (because Jalen Rose had done the same s**t to Kobe that Dahntay Jones did the other day), and took the game over.
