2012 NBA All-Star Game Highlights: Kobe Bryant Leaves Kevin Love Hanging

There were quite a few highlights during Sunday night's 2012 NBA All-Star game, but not many of them included Minnesota Timberwolves representative Kevin Love doing his thing in video form. After a quick search of Youtube, however, Love did find his way to the internet's video machine.

It probably isn't the way Love wanted to be remembered, considering he was solid with 17 points and seven rebounds off the bench for the winning West squad, but the embedded video below is the only one that the internet deemed worthy of posting while the All-Star game was actually happening.

Yep that's Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant jogging back to the huddle in the third quarter of Sunday night's contest, giving high fives to the majority of his teammates with their hands ready. Love was snubbed, however, getting only a point while he leaves his hand up hoping the Black Mamba might change his mind.

It never happened, but it might not be as bad as the time this happened:
