Kobe Bryant scored 37 points as the West beat the East, 148-143, in Sunday's NBA All-Star game. He beat out LeBron James, who piled up a triple-double in a losing effort, for MVP honors.
Those statlines tell you everything you need to know about the effort in the defensive end, but hey, that's how these All-Star games go.
And that's why I had more fun watching Justin Bieber go head-to-head with MTV "Rock 'N' Jock" alum Michael Rapaport in Friday's celebrity game. That game was much more entertaining than the real one, though that's not saying very much.
