Kobe still doing great in All-Star voting
Kobe Bryant couldn’t hold back his smile. He also couldn’t hold back his sarcasm.
Even though Bryant’s already appeared in 14 NBA All-star games in his 17th year career, Bryant acted surprised the NBA’s third returns shows the Lakers guard leading with 1,177, 456 votes. He has a slight cushion over Miami’s LeBron James (1,151,304 votes), Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant (1,008,797) and New York’s Carmelo Anthony (1,054,099).
“I guess people want to see an old dog, I guess,” the 34-year-old Bryant said. “Thank you. I’m extremely honored.”
