Fair or Foul: Dwayne Wade Breaks Kobe’s Nose During NBA All-Star Game (VIDEO)

Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade After the lack luster events of NBA All-Star weekend, Sunday night’s game in Orlando brought out the claws. Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade laid a hard foul on Kobe Bryant that reportedly resulted in a broken nose and a concussion for the Lakers' star. According to the Lakers' official website, Bryant suffered a "nasal fracture" during the game. The injury was reportedly revealed during a CAT scan in Orlando and Bryant will undergo further examination back in Los Angeles on Monday. After the game D-Wade told reporters, “I obviously didn't try to draw no blood, but I took a foul. Kobe fouled me two times in a row, so he's still got one up on me." The night continued on a downward spin for Bryant, along with his broken nose, he reportedly also suffered a mild concussion during the incident, reports Yahoo! Sports. Immediately following the West's victory, Bryant skipped the media availability, reportedly due to headaches. There was one bright spot during the game for Kobe; he was able to surpass Michael Jordan as the leading scorer in the history of the NBA All-Star Game. I guess when there’s no defense coming from the other team, you can do things like that. Your J.G.F., Marcelle English
