Too bad injuries have plagued a lot of the All-Stars, though, Kobe HAS played hurt before in the All-Star game.

NESN: As Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game at Cowboys Stadium draws closer, the lineup is becoming more and more uncertain. Injuries have plagued the top players on the roster. Brandon Roy already has pulled out of the game, and Kobe Bryant, Paul Pierce and Carmelo Anthony remain question marks.

    That still goes in the books as him being a 2010 nba allstar right?

      Not necessarily.What he can do is ask to play for 5 minutes (like he did a couple of years ago). In that case, he would go in the books.

    The All Star wouldnt be the All Star without the All Star there. So, let Kobe rest and let the All Star fail in Dallas, crushing Cuban’s dreams. He’d love to have Kobe there… but Kobe has other things to do.

    Whether or not Kobe plays in the All-Star game, it still counts as him being an All-Star. Just ask all the injured all-star starters/reserves over the past decade who have been replaced due to injury. Their personal profile still shows that they were all-stars in that year. So Kobe should just sit out the All-Star game because it will still count for him anyways.

    The thing in question is…”is Pudgy Pierce an All Star?”!!!???!!!? Hate that guy! Fcukin wanna be gangster throwing out signs and then backin down like a ‘lil biatch when confronted. Then he pulls a Meryl Streep with an acting award, trying to be like Willis Reed. But we all know that he ain’t Willis Reed, but rather Willis Jackson from the 80′s tv show ‘Different Strokes’!
