Kobe and Shaq proved they can play together again in leading the West to an easy 146-119 victory over the East in the 58th NBA All-Star Game.

Kobe Bryant scored 27 points and Shaquille O'Neal had 17 for a West team. Bryant also had four steals, four assists and four rebounds in just 29 minutes. O'Neal was 8 of 9 from the field. Bryant and his former L.A. Lakers teammate, who now plays for Phoenix, shared the MVP award. It's the third MVP award for each.

This was the first time Bryant and O'Neal were on the floor as teammates since the 2004 NBA finals. O'Neal was traded to Miami that summer, breaking apart a duo that produced three straight NBA titles with the Lakers.

Amare Stoudemire, rumored to be traded in the next few days by Phoenix, added 19 points in what might be his final game as a member of the Suns. Portland's Brandon Roy added 14.

LeBron James scored 20 for the East. Paul Pierce and Dwyane Wade added 18 apiece.
