Kobe Bryant Loved It When Dwyane Wade Broke His Nose At The 2012 All-Star Game
We all know and love Kobe Bryant’s ‘Mamba Mentality’, but sometimes it was a little bit too much. One example: Enjoying having your nose broken.
Before the 2019 All-Star game, Dwyane Wade sat down with Kevin Garnett and talked about the time he accidentally broke Kobe Bryant’s nose during the 2012 All-Star Game. The funny thing, Kobe loved it:
“Me and Kob’ got into a little tussle in the All-Star Game, and I ended up hitting him the wrong way and breaking his nose. … So after the All-Star break, we got the Lakers about three games after the break … I call him, not maliciously. I didn’t maliciously do it. I called him and said ‘Yo Kob” and he was like ‘Bro, I love it.’ I’m like He’s like ‘I love it. I’ll see you in a couple days.’ And I’m like ‘Oh snap.’ And he gave it to me, too, boy.”
