The first return of All-Star votes were revealed and Kobe Bryant has received by far the most votes. Many fans want to see Bryant celebrated in his final season before retirement and the All-Star Game will be the perfect place to see it showcased. Bryant has more votes than LeBron James and Kevin Durant combined.
Kobe was quite surprised when alerted as shown by his reaction:
“‘What the hell?’ Shocked doesn’t do it justice.”
Bryant winning the vote isn’t surprising but the large amount of support for him over James, Durant and Stephen Curry is. The All-Star Game should be one of the most fun 2016 sports events.
