Wrapping up All-Star weekend
February, 19, 2007
LAS VEGAS -- The best player at the All-Star game will not remember winning his second MVP trophy as the defining moment of his weekend. For Kobe Bryant, it was getting to hang out with fellow dunk contest judges Michael Jordan, Vince Carter, Dominique Wilkins and Julius Erving on Saturday night. "As a kid I never dreamed I'd be in the back chopping it up with MJ, Dr. J and Dominique. That's something I'll remember forever," Bryant said after I asked him what would go down as the signature snapshot of the weekend for him. "We were pretty much talking trash the whole time, comparing eras, comparing sneaker technology, hand sizes and who could so what."
