I think the Lakers would have won this series with Kobe in the lineup. They were the better team over the last 40 games of the season.
The Lakers were better the last several weeks of the season because the Spurs were pretty banged up (Parker, Manu, Diaw). The Spurs are still banged up, but they're regaining strength and are a different team now than they were weeks ago.
