Kobe Bryant reportedly suffered broken nose, mild concussion on Dwyane Wade foul (Video)
There was nothing dirty about the way Dwyane Wade fouled Kobe Bryant on Sunday night, but was it too hard a foul for the All-Star Game? Typically we’re used to seeing guys clear the way for their opponents so they can put on a show for the fans. With the East trailing by 12 early in the third quarter, it appeared D-Wade had enough of that no defense nonsense and wanted to make Kobe earn his points at the foul line. He came over the top and delivered a hard foul — one that apparently had some lasting effects.
According to Adrian Wojnarowkski of Yahoo! Sports, Kobe suffered a broken nose and a mild concussion on the play. Bryant still went on to break Michael Jordan’s record and become the All-Star Game’s all-time leading scorer, but the Lakers are hoping it didn’t come at a significant cost.
