Kobe Bryant is playing in his final All-Star game this weekend in Toronto, and on Friday he met with a throng of assembled media from across the globe.

While the jury is still out on whether that gift is dumb or awesome, having a phone with Crying Jordan on it ask the retiring superstar questions definitely falls into the dumb category.

Still not that much worse than asking, “How does it feel to be at your final All-Star Game?” though.
