INDIANAPOLIS - The Lakers' big man was gone, disqualified on fouls with 2:33 left in overtime. That meant Kobe Bryant, at age 21, on a hurt left ankle and in his first NBA Finals, got a chance to redeem himself from past playoff failures, while at the same time putting him on the verge to capture the first of what could easily be many championships. "This is the game that I have been dreaming about," Bryant said. "I mean, I dream about it every day. I dreamed about it before I came to the game today.
