While the East and West All-star teams fielded exciting young superstar talent like Durant, Rose and Westbrook, their was one battle-hardened veteran who quietly reminded everyone who the king is- Kobe Bryant.
The champ collected another All-star MVP award- 37 points and double digits in rebounds. Not to bad for an old fella. While, Kobe doesn’t mind his own voice, his most constructive talking is on the court. Like all champions in sport, the field or court is a forum for bold statements to be clearly heard. The competitive animal that is Kobe, made his voice heard: the crown is still his.
Yes. If you like it or not, Bryant has lost a step or two and his elite explosiveness is not what it used to be 5 years ago. Yet, here we are. The last two NBA Championships are in the hands of Kobe’s Lakers.
Lebron James you know what must be done.
