The Legendary All Star Game In 2001


The best All Star game I remember watching live (I watched the 1990&92 All Star games live, but was too young back then to appreciate it).

Just take a look at the players. That quality!!!


EAST: Iverson, McGrady, Carter, Hill, Mourning (Starting 5) – Allen, Davis, Houston, Mason, Mutombo, Ratliff,  G.Robinson, Sprewell, Stackhouse, Marbury


WEST: Kidd, Bryant, Webber, Duncan, O’Neal (Starting 5) – Divac, Finley, Garnett, Malone, McDyess, Payton, D.Robinson, R.Wallace



Allen Iverson was named the game’s Most Valuable Player after he rallied the East to garner an improbable 111–110 comeback victory over the West. The East trailed 95–74 with nine minutes left after the West dominated the first 39 minutes behind its superior size. Iverson sparked the comeback scoring 15 of his 25 points in the final nine minutes of the game. Stephon Marbury also helped the East by hitting two three-pointers in the final 53 seconds, including one with 28 seconds left, which proved to be the game-winner.

Kobe Bryant scored the most points for the West squad (19 points), which led by as much as twenty-one points before the team squandered the lead. Bryant, the NBA’s leading scorer at the time, could have taken the last shot; instead, he threw a pass that resulted in a last-second miss by Tim Duncan.
