Pobeda Zapada i Kobijevo opraštanje od Ol stara

Kobi Brajant odigrao je svoje osamnaesto i poslednje Ol star takmičenje. U spektakularnom duelu između Istoka (u plavim dresovima) i Zapada (u crvenom), pobedila je Zapadna konferencija, rezultatom 196:173, uz poteze dostojne događaja ovakvog formata. 

In another spectacular weekend of basketball, the West has beat the East by 196:173 in what could have been a 200 point game for the Western Conference. A great victory for Kobe Bryant’s 18th and final All-Star appearance, in which he scored 10 points. 

In a match played for the first time outside the US, the West managed to break many records, including the points, per quarter by scoring 53 points in a truly phenomenal 3rd quarter.

Once again, Russel Westbrook became All Star MVP, with 31 points and 8 rebounds. Paul George scored 41 points for the East.

Steph Curry played an important role in the victory for the boys in red, with his long passes, and fast three pointers. His homage to Bryant followed after the game. One of the best players of the new generation asked Kobe for an autograph, as a sign of influence that he had on the lives and careers of all of the players at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre.
