The 2001 NBA All-Star Game was a matchup between the Eastern and the Western Conference All-Stars. It was held in front of a sellout crowd at the MCI Center in Washington, D.C. This was the 50th Edition of the annual event. Allen Iverson was named All-Star Game MVP after he rallied the East to garner an improbable 111-110 comeback victory over the West. The East trailed 95-74 with nine minutes left after the West dominated the first 39 minutes behind its superior size. It appeared the game would come out looking like a mismatch that would back up all the theories that the Western Conference and its players were the elite of the League, but the Eastern Allstars proved them wrong. Iverson sparked the comeback scoring 15 of his 25 points in the final nine minutes of the game. Stephon Marbury also helped the East by hitting two three-pointers in the final 53 seconds. He hit the second three pointer with 28 seconds left, it would be the game-winner.

Kobe Bryant scored the most points for the West squad(19 points), which led by as much as twenty-one points before the team squandered the lead. Bryant, the NBA's leading scorer at the time, could have taken the last shot. Instead, in a shock to everyone sitting in the building and watching on television, he threw a pass that resulted in a last-second miss by Tim Duncan. Bryant got the ball, Bryant faked Marbury off his feet and then surprising everyone in the building, threw the ball to Duncan for a short shot that he missed just before the buzzer. http://www.nba.com/history/allstar/recap_2001.html [1]
