The last time Kobe Bryant didn’t start in an All-Star game, “Friends” was only halfway through its 10-year run, the Florida Marlins beat the New York Yankees in the World Series and Tupac Shakur had been dead for a year.

Behind more than 2.8 million votes, Bryant will join Tim Duncan, Amar’e Stoudemire, Yao Ming and Chris Paul as a Western Conference starter in his personal 11th-straight start. The MVP of the All-Star game in 2002 and 2007 was also the youngest All-Star in NBA history in 1998.

Leading the Eastern Conference will be leading vote getter Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett, Dwyane Wade and Allen Iverson.

Bryant finished third among all players behind Howard (3.1+ million) and James (2.9+ million).

wtf how did Paul get more votes than Tmac? wasn't Mac ahead big when the results were released the last time? CP3 deserves it of course but still come on haha . And this could be AI's last start so I guess he deserves it. LOL at Amare at F, he's gonna guard Lebron oh me oh my

Luke ridnour and Arenas got more votes than Nelson and Johnson? woah. I think Arenas got most of his votes from himself haha.

And Bowen's third in the west forward slot :lol: :lol:

CP3 > T-Mac.

Yeh CP3 deserves it more than T-Mac, but T-Mac was way ahead of CP3 in votes. Either someone voted like crazy or something else happened. :hmmm:
