Kobe Bryant Leads All Backcourt Players In West All-Star Voting

Kobe BryantAfter eight months of rehab from sugery to repair a torn Achilles tendon, Kobe Bryant was able to make his return to the floor for the Los Angeles Lakers. Unfortunately, Bryant only lasted six games before injuring his knee resulting in a six-week setback.

Despite Bryant’s latest injury and only six games played this season, the superstar guard is leading all backcourt players in the Western Conference All-Star voting according to the Lakers official Twitter account:


Along with leading the way in the West ahead of players like Chris Paul, Bryant is third in the NBA in total votes so far. It should come as no surprise that four-time NBA MVP LeBron James of the Miami Heat is currently leading the way with 854,105 votes, but Bryant not being far behind is a testament to how his fans continue to stick by the superstar even with another injury derailing his season.

Currently, the Lakers are struggling once again with their undisputed leader on the floor. The team is sitting at 13-16 after a loss to the Heat on Christmas Day and may continue to struggle with Pau Gasol still dealing with a respiratory problem that will most likely keep him out against the Utah Jazz on Friday.

    Oh how could Kobe be leading all west backcourt players in all star voting?
    Didn’t a few of his doubters just recently say his career was done? Good thing lame opinions of doom from gloomy low self esteem individuals are in the minority :-) LOL…….. I keep laughing at these busters and bitches LOL……

    Cheers to Kobe’s successful return to the top and a few more Laker championships in the process. Against all odds !

    Go Kobe ! Go Lakers !

      Well remember, he was ranked 25th in the NBA while not active.

      • e3bonz

        Plus he gets more camera time sitting on the bench than most players get playing in the game. Kobe is the face of the NBA.

          How true ! What I admire most is he had to earn that right.
          Kobe was not hand picked to carry the torch by the NBA like a few others were. Kobe’s work ethic,drive,and determination enabled him to take what otherwise would have not been given to him.

          I think the NBA should be ashamed of themselves for only giving one of the leagues all time greats 1 league MVP.

          That is a blackeye the league won’t be able to cover up upon reflecting back on Kobe’s great career years from now. That along with the CP3 trade Stern and the league
          blocked to try an prevent Kobe from topping one of their hand selected boys legacies.

          They had a problem with that trade, but it was ok for Lebron to team up with D.Wade? They knew Kobe and CP3 would have done what they allowed Lebron and D.Wade to do :-)

          It’s funny when you think about it. LOL……

          But I like Lebron and D.Wade especially, so I’m glad they did hook up.

          I like CP3 and Kobe too, so that would have been a sight to see as well.

          Go Kobe ! Go Lakers !

            Stern did not want the Lakers to monopolize the NBA championship. That’s whty they vetoed the CP3 trade and approved the Miami trade.

          • Paytc

            Exactly ! And that’s why Lebron has the NBA’s permission to monopolize this current string of titles. Had Stern and the NBA been fair, and allowed these two players (Kobe/CP3) the same right they allowed those two players(Lebron/D.Wade) we would see a balance in superstar power thus better competition for a championship IMO.

          • Paytc

            But of course the league is well aware of that so they prevented it

      • Paytc

        Yeah actually that’s pretty good for a player sitting on the sidelines.
        Once he returns watch to see how quickly he puts that nonsense to rest.

        Confidence like no other- Kobe Bryant

        cheers to his……….

        Go Kobe ! Go Lakers !
