With the Eastern Conference trying to make a run to keep the game close late in the fourth quarter, Kobe Bryant snuck up on LeBron James as he was taking a jumper and sent his shot coming back at him in the other direction.

Kevin Durant corralled the shot, took it the other way and slammed the ball home to all but seal the game for the Western Conference.

Of course, folks took opposite sides of the coin on the meaning of the block. In reality, it was a block in the All-Star Game. It was fun, but meaningless in the long run.

Kobe actually pulled off another block on LeBron a few minutes later, getting a finger on his shot before James was able to get it off.

However, at the end of the day, we're going back to the regular season Monday and the Los Angeles Lakers are still in a hole.

Still, it was a fun way to finish up a very entertaining All-Star Game.
