Just like the regular season, the NBA All-Star weekend is a farewell tour for Kobe Bryant. The 20-year Lakers veteran has been praised by everyone in Toronto and flanked by hordes of media members from all over the world. NBA A to Z guy Sam Amick talks to Orange County Times reporter Bill Oram, who is there to cover Bryant, about what it has been like. USA TODAY's Kevin Spain catches up with Indy Car driver James Hinchcliffe, the mayor of Hinchtown, who is a Toronto native and loving the fact that the All Star game is in his city. He discusses his basketball fandom, the accident that almost took his life and the fact that he has his own beer.
