NBA All Star Game
2002-PHILADELPHIA

When Allen Iverson had to be the star in Philadelphia wearing the Dr. J number 6, Kobe Bryant stole the show.
Kobe was the most concentrated player in the game. He played like it was a Finals game. The worst part for Kobe was the crowd booing him, in his "home" Philadelphia.
West dominated all the game, sentenced at the end of the third quarter 100-77. Only a few 3 pointers by Ray Allen at the beginning of the fourth quarter, remembered the comeback of last year All-Star Game, but West shooters scored well too.
This edition will be remembered by two plays:
The dunk of the year of Tracy McGrady and Michael Jordan easy missed dunk.
The strange stat of the night was the fact that the five scoring leaders of the East were all bench players. This edition coul be called "the 3 pointer edition" with 59 3 pointers attempted, and five 3 pointers records broken.

SLAM DUNK

Only 4 players participated in this edition. The main new was the roulette of classic dunks. Each player had to do a classic dunk. It was a good idea, but not for Steve Francis, who wasn't able to make the Terence Starbury 360. Gerald Wallace made a great "free throw line" dunk ala Julius Erving. Jason Richardson make the "Tomahawk" as good as Dominique, and won the contest with a 50 points reverse dunk in the final.
