NBA All-Star Chat: Will Kobe Bryant get his 5th All-Star MVP?
It's a well established fact Kobe Bryant continues to chase history.
A sixth championship ring puts him in a tie with Michael Jordan. Bryant recently surpassed Shaquille O'Neal for fifth place on the NBA's all-time scoring list. His league-leading 28.3 points could give Bryant his second regular-season MVP award.
But Bryant might chase another milestone in the 2012 NBA All-Star game. Bryant has the chance to grab his a league-record fifth All-Star MVP Sunday, which would surpass Hawks power forward Bob Pettit for the most All-Star MVPS. Bryant is also 19 points shy of surpassing Michael Jordan's All-Star record of 262 points. It remains to be seen whether Bryant's more motivated for that or resting his body for a grueling second half of the season.
