Lakers parade: MVP Kobe Bryant excites crowd at Coliseum
Before he was introduced, the chant went up, "MVP... MVP... MVP." It was easy to figure out who it was for, Kobe Bryant. Bryant leaped to the front of the pack. Bryant hopped and hopped and hopped around. He let out a loud roar, his mouth open wide. The crowd went into a frenzy.
