Watch Dr. Dre’s All-Star Weekend Tribute to Kobe Bryant
It still doesn't quite seem real, but it was just 3 weeks ago that Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash. There have been a lot of tributes, but now it was Dr. Dre's turn.
All-Star Weekend tributes to Kobe Bryant have been a big story line for this weekend. The league changed the game rules, including taking the score of the leader going into the fourth quarter and turning off the clock. That team's score plus 24 points was the target score. First team to reach that mark, wins the game. The league went with 24 because of one of Bryant's numbers.
Commissioner Adam Silver also announced this weekend that the All-Star Game MVP would be renamed the NBA All-Star Game Kobe Bryant Most Valuable Player. Bryant won the award 4 times, tying him with Bob Pettit of the St. Louis Hawks for the most all time.
