Kobe Bryant broke the NBA All-Star game history by becoming the highest scorer passing Michael Jordan.
Bryant scored with five minutes left in the third quarter. This was to be Bryant’s 264th point in 14 All-Star games which now puts him ahead of Jordan who held the record at 262. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is third with 251 and Oscar Robertson is fourth with 246. At the end of the game, he brought his total to 271 points.
The 2012 NBA All-Star game was held in Orlando, Florida.
Unfortunately, Bryant also came out with a broken nose that night. He took a hard foul from Heat star Dwayne Wayne in the third quarter of the game. He received medical treatment when blood started dripping from his nose.
Bryant has suffered several injuries from the offseason and previous seasons, but this does not stop him from playing his best. Despite all the injuries he’s suffered, he is still the fifth-leading scorer in NBA history.
