Kobe Bryant scored 31 points to capture his second MVP award and lead the West to a 153-132 victory over the East in the NBA All-Star game on Sunday. Bryant hit 13 of 24 shots and had six steals and six assists in the game, played just off the glittery gambling mecca known as “The Strip.” The Los Angeles Lakers guard also had 31 points when he was MVP in the 2002 All-Star game in Philadelphia. It was the first time the All-Star Game was played in a city without an NBA franchise and first to be played on a college campus.
The jersey itself is autographed by Kobe Bryant with the inscription of “07 AS MVP” and is limited to 124. I was able to add #63 to my ever growing Kobe Bryant memorabilia collection.
