The NBA All-Star game this past weekend saw the West defeat the East 196-173 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada, giving Kobe Bryant the send-off he deserves in his final All-Star game before he retires at the end of the season.

For some players in the game, it would be the last time they would play with or against the LA Lakers star on the hardwood, so some ever-lasting moments had to be created.

LeBron James created exactly that, as he had a one-on-one battle with Bryant during the game, which turned out to be one of the best moments of the game.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star reflected on the battle on his Instagram after the game by posting a picture of himself defending against Bryant with the caption: "Legendary!! Getting this framed for the crib. #ThankYouMamba"

Many fans would have liked to have seen this match-up take place at some point during the NBA Finals, but it looks unlikely to occur due to the Lakers current position in the Western Conference. Settling for a moment in the NBA All-Star game is not a bad second place at all.

It was a great moment, as James slapped his hands on the floor for the two NBA greats to go one-on-one with each other for one last time, everyone just stood back and watched it happen.

Overall, it was another great All-Star game. Although the scoreline wasn't close, that didn't matter. This game was essentially for Bryant, and it lived up to that expectation.
