Kobe Bryant is putting his hands and feet where no other athlete has done so before him. Before Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles, the Lakers superstar paid a visit to Grauman’s Chinese Theater where he cemented his hand and footprints at the famed Hollywood landmark.
Kobe is now the first athlete to be immortalized in the cement sidewalk which boasts prints from some of Hollywood’s biggest names. He called the event an honor.
The next night Bryant was back in his comfort zone helping his All-Star Western Conference team to a 148-143 victory over the East at Staples Center. The basketball superstar was also named Game MVP for the fourth time in his career after pouring in 37 points during the Game.
