“Oh, really? Damn,” Bryant said. “I guess people want to see an old dog.”

The All-Star game is not complete without Kobe Bryant, and he is constantly one of the main players in the match. Fans want to see Kobe play and he is certainly one of the most entertaining players we have in the league today.

This season, the 34-year-old Bryant is leading the NBA in scoring with 30.3 points per game and it is clear that he still has a lot of basketball left in him.
