Champion's Paradise – Kobe Bryant in Cabo San Lucas
In a postgame interview with Kobe Bryant, right after the Laker’s 15th championship win, Kobe was asked where he’d be going to celebrate his win. His answer was not the standard, “Disneyland,” but something a little more exotic, a little more adult; Cabo San Lucas. And, as great as Mickey Mouse is, really, it makes sense that the NBA Finals MVP would prefer the sun and the sand to screaming kids and lines (ok, I doubt Kobe has to wait in line, but you get the point). Who wouldn’t want to go to Cabo? Everyone knows that Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is beautiful but what you might not realize is that you don’t need an NBA paycheck to go there.
