Will Kobe Bryant miss this Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game in Dallas‘ Cowboys Stadium? After missing the past two Lakers games, it looks likely. Kobe, who is known for his toughness and his ability to play through most injuries, will make the decision whether or not to play on the day of the game with the Lakers team trainer. With his current ankle injury, Kobe is having trouble pushing off of his left foot, making his jump shot much weaker and less accurate, not to mention hindering his lock down defense. The recent injury-caused benching broke a 235 consecutive games played streak for Kobe, who hadn’t missed a game since 2005. How Kobe‘s possible-absence will affect the attendance at Cowboys Stadium, which is will blow the all-time attendance record for an NBA All-Star Game out of the water this weekend, remains to be seen.
