People memorialized the late Kobe Bryant in everything from performances to sneakers to cars. And they were all 10/10!

This year’s All-Star game was different than ever before. Of course the Basketball community and the world is still very much grieving the loss of Kobe, Gianna and the 7 other lives; but they also completely changed the format in memory of Kobe!

The league decided that for the All-Star game’s fourth-quarter, the first team to 24 points, based on the team with highest score after three quarters, wins. Basically if the score at the end of the third quarter is 100-99, in order to win, which ever team got to 124 points (because the higher of the two scores at the end of the 3rd is 100 points) would be the winner. The last quarter was also not timed at all, it was completely based off the score.

Other tributes included an 8-second moment of silence lead by Magic Johnson in the game opener, performances by Jennifer Hudson, Common and Chance The Rapper. An EPIC tribute video from Dr. Dre shown during the game and Kawhi Leonard took home the recently renamed MVP trophy, now called the “Kobe Bryant MVP Award”. Check it all out below:
