The NBA All-Star game last night lived up to expectation as a rememberable one.
In Kobe Bryant's last All-Star game, his West side defeated the East side 196-173 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada on Sunday night.
Russell Westbrook was named the MVP of the game once again as he finished the clash with 31 points, eight rebounds and five assists.

The game itself finished in spectacular fashion on the court, with the league's current MVP Stephen Curry having the last laugh.
With the seconds dwindling down in the game, instead of just dribbling the ball to run down the clock, the Golden State Warriors star decided to take a half-court shot, and sure enough, he hit it to the amazement of the crowd.
The current NBA Champion may have lost in the Three-Point Contest earlier that weekend against his Warriors teammate, Klay Thompson, but it is him who walks away from Toronto with the best three-pointer shot of the event.
Thompson won the Three-Point Contest when he hit 27 three-pointers in the final round, four more than Curry, who only scored 23.
Kobe, who was on the sidelines at the time, was very happy with the game-ending shot and produced a big smile when the ball hit the basket.
The basket pretty much confirms that while Bryant is bowing out of the game, the new king of the NBA is here right now, and his name is Stephen Curry.
