In Kobe Bryant’s final NBA All-Star Game, the Western All-Stars made sure the Black Mamba left Toronto with a victory.
Wearing the Air Jordan XXX ‘Cosmos,’ Russell Westbrook dazzled on the floor of the Air Canada Centre as he put on another MVP performance in guiding the West to a 196-173 win over the East. Paul George, wearing the Nike HyperLive, topped the Eastern Stars with 41 points, nearly breaking Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star scoring record of 42.
But while those players did their best to steal the spotlight, the night still belonged to Kobe. In his All-Star Game swan song, Bryant took the floor in the ‘ASG’ colorway of his Nike Kobe XI Elite Low and finished the night with a stat sheet-filling 10 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 1 steal.
Dwyane Wade might have had the most unique All-Star sneaker of the evening as he hit the hardwood in the Li-Ning Way of Wade 4 which was highlighted by its platinum-toned metallic iridescent upper. James Harden had the game’s most interesting shoe as he donned the adidas Crazylight Boost 2.5 that made use of the adi’s highly reflective XENO technology.
We’ve got a full run-down of every sneaker worn during last night’s ASG so if you missed out on any of the action, make sure you catch-up with our All-Star gallery.
