The second greatest player in all of NBA history we all know who the first is....MJ
I remember that game! Had it taped on VHS! What people don't realize is; this dunk is off an alley oop from KG! That tall shadow from the bottom right is KG!! "Garnett back to Kobe!" (Bob Costas voice)
A lot of memorable things took place in Kobe's first Allstar game. One was how he and Jordan were going at each other. Two was the dribbling move he did in the open court. And the third was when he waved away the pick, being set by Karl Malone 😆
Malone felt so disrespected by Kobe doing that, that he expressed his dismay about it.
I bet to this day Malone still hasn't got over that lol
