As unbelievable as it sounds, 2016 will be the last year we'll see Kobe Bryant step foot on the All Star court as a player. According to ESPN, the long-time Los Angeles Lakers star was once again voted into being a starter in the NBA All Star game, which is scheduled to be held at Air Canada Centre in Toronto Feb. 14. Bryant's final appearance at this year's game will also be the 18th time the player was voted into playing.
Although Kobe Bryant is starting once again, he will be accompanied by a well round of young talent on the court. The Western Conference starters also include Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry, Oklahoma City Thunder's dynamic duo Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, and the San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard.
On the opposing starting roster, Cleveland Cavaliers' Lebron James, Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade, New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry and Indiana Pacers player Paul George will be representing the Eastern Conference.
Although Kobe is playing his last All Star game, he is leaving with a ton of achievements made during his past performances. Kobe has been selected into the All Star game every year in his professional career except for 1999. Kobe is also the youngest to become a slam dunk contest champion, as well as in breaking records for the most points scored (280) and most field goals (115), according to the report.
