Kobe Bryant Wants To Opt Out Of All-Star Game
Here is his quote, via ESPNLosAngeles.coms Dave McMenamin:
With all due respect to the fans that voted me in, I certainly appreciate that, they know how much I appreciate that, but you got to do the right thing as well, Bryant said before the Lakers 109-102 loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday night. My fans know you got to reward these young guys for the work that theyve been putting in.
I think its important for them to go in and perform, Bryant said. Theyve been playing all season. They deserve to be in there. They deserve to play. So, I see no reason why they shouldnt be out there doing their thing.
