Today’s Topic: 1998 All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden
This Sunday’s All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden will be the first held at the “Mecca of Basketball” since 1998, when Michael Jordan won his third and final All-Star Game MVP after scoring 26 points with eight assists in the Eastern Conference’s 135-114 win. Second-year pro Kobe Bryant led the Western Conference with 18 points as he matched up with Jordan.
This Throwback Thursday, we honor this classic All-Star Game with the All-Access video above and the photo gallery below.
