Kobe surpassed Jordan’s All-Star record
The new record holder for being the highest scorer in the NBA All-Star Game history is no other than Kobe Bryant.
Kobe surpassed Michael Jordan’s record of 262 points by logging a total of 269 points after the 2012 NBA All-Star game in Orlando on February 26, 2012.
How? First, Kobe tied the record on two free throws in the third quarter and a dunk with 4.57 remaining in the same period officially broke Jordan’s All-Star Game scoring mark.
Wait, Kobe also surpassed two other NBA greats namely Kareem Abdul Jabbar who registered 251 points (now third highest) and Oscar Robertson who inked 246 points (now ranked 4th) in the NBA All-Star Game history.
Jordan played in 13 All-Star games. Sunday’s game was Kobe’s 13th All-Star appearance also finishing with 27 points. He entered the game with 244 points at hand coming from the previous 12 All-Star Games he played in. Kobe at the same time is co-owner of a record tying four All-Star Game MVP’s.
