Default Kobe Will Play In All-Star Game

WOW .... had any of you guys heard of the rule I've bolded in the quote below?

I guess he'll play a couple minutes and then Kobe will sit out the rest of the game.

If a player plays in his team's final game before the All-Star break he must play in the game, per NBA policy.

"It doesn't seem to me to make sense," Lakers' General Manager Mitch Kupchak told the Times. "I understand it's the biggest showcase of the year for the NBA and that's all of us."

"But from a general manager's point of view, looking out for the interests of our club, to me it doesn't make sense," Kupchak added.

"The doctor examining [Bryant] said, 'If you're not going to have surgery, give it time to heal.'"
