Kobe Bryant came out like a man on a mission — the guy who wins the All-Star MVP is usually the guy who wants it most. Playing on his home court (well, not actually the court, I have no idea what that two-toned monstrosity was) in front of the home fans Kobe put on a show.

That included more dunks than he has had in a game in ages. He even outran a LeBron chase-down block.

It was a vintage Kobe performance, with everything that goes along with that.
