VIDEO: Dwyane Wade Hammers Kobe Bryant, Draws Blood At NBA All-Star Game

Blood2_1_medium

Hard fouls are not exactly a staple of NBA All-Star Game play. But Kobe Bryant owes Dwyane Wade money or something, because the Miami Heat guard absolutely hammered the L.A. Lakers' superstar in the third quarter, making Kobe bleed his own blood, as the photo above shows.

We have video of the foul below the jump.

At the time of the foul, Kobe was two points behind Michael Jordan for the record for career points in NBA All-Star Games. Bryant hit both free throws and should own the record sometime soon.

The Lakers aren't having the best night in total, though. Andrew Bynum, starting for the West in his All-Star debut, had a hilariously bad five-minute stint to open the game before taking a seat for the rest of the night. He had a minor, precautionary procedure on his knee earlier in the day.
