2011 NBA All-Star Game

Video: Kobe Bryant, your NBA All-Star MVP


Kobe Bryant came out like a man on a mission — the guy who wins the All-Star MVP is usually the guy who wants it most. Playing on his home court (well, not actually the court, I have no idea what that two-toned monstrosity was) in front of the home fans Kobe put on a show.

That included more dunks than he has had in a game in ages. He even outran a LeBron chase-down block.

It was a vintage Kobe performance, with everything that goes along with that.

Kobe Bryant said it was playing with all those younger, high-flying players.

The cynic in some — not us here at PBT, we would never be cynical or sarcastic — would say it was because he had a naked ambition to win another MVP award.

Either way, Kobe was dunking Sunday night at the All-Star game like he hasn’t in years. Take, for example, this early throw down.
