Dwyane Wade may not have received the memo that the NBA All-Star Game usually just involves a bunch of dunks and light defense.
The Miami Heat guard was defending Kobe Bryant on Sunday night in the annual game in Orlando, and fouled the Lakers guard so hard that it led to a bloody and broken nose. Wade wrapped both arms around Bryant as he drove to the basket.
The foul took place in the third quarter, and Bryant stayed in the game, but he left afterward to be evaluated. A CT scan revealed that Bryant suffered a broken nose.
Yeah, I obviously didn't try to draw no blood, but I took a foul, Wade said. Kobe fouled me two times in a row, so he's still got one up on me. But I'm glad that everything was cool and we got back to being competitive and having fun.
Bryant became the NBA All-Star Game's greatest scorer by breaking Michael Jordan's record of 262 points after a dunk in the third quarter.
