West All-Stars 148, East All-Stars 143…
It was like the last game of Kobe in L.A. at least for the All-Stars game as he brought the house down by showing that he has still the legs to deliver a show. 37 points from the ‘Black Mamba’ Kobe Bryant.
Kobe Bryant won his 4th NBA All-Stars MVP as he led the West All-Stars to beat the Lebron James lead East All-Stars.
Kobe Bryant once again proves to the world that he is not yet done in basketball. He was purely motivated and determined to showcase what he can still do on the court with fellow superstars. This might motivate his team as well to regain their rhythm and defend their title and win a championship in three-peat.
Kobe was totally come in the game prepared and ready to give the fans a show and to give the West All-Stars to get back on East All-Stars. As he said:
“I feel like we have a sense of responsibility and we are voted in for what we do during the season, which is play hard. And we come here, that’s what the fans want to see. They want to see us go at it and see us compete and that’s what I try to do and that’s what I try to tell my teammates to do.”
Lebron James powered the East All-Stars rally, finishing with 29 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists to join Michael Jordan as the only players with a triple-double in the All-Star game. Lebron James displayed a lot of athleticism and he almost carries the East team to a win with his brilliant and intelligent plays.
Lebron James, with his presence give the Kobe and West a scare in the fourth quarter until in the few seconds of the game which they were able to cut the lead to 2 points.
Dwayne Wade said he rolled the ankle he originally hurt in a loss at Boston Celtics last week. He was hoping James would pull it out without him.
“I wish the East woul’ve have won, then my teammate with the triple-double performance would’ve stole the MVP, But they deserved it.”
