Warriors’ Kevin Durant calls winning All-Star Game MVP ‘special’

After having to come back from as many as 20 points, Team LeBron out lasted Team Giannis, 178-164, to win the NBA All-Star game.

Malone's squad, handpicked by Lakers forward LeBron, the game's leading vote-getter featured a starting lineup that included superstars James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in addition to LeBron James. "We got stops, and, obviously, Dame and Klay caught fire from beyond the arc, and that allowed us to get back in the game".

Doncic, who is participating in the NBA All-Star festivities for the first time his career, just wants to relish the experience and looks forward to competing against other NBA rising stars. He's defending and scoring at a high level, and even defended more than most in the All-Star Game where zero defense is played.

Meanwhile, Davis told Kushner following Sunday's All-Star Game that he intends to resume his normal workload and finish out the season.

Walker is part of Team Giannis, selected by Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo (YAH'-nihs an-teh-toh-KAHM'-poh). And while Walker says he hasn't given much thought to making an All-Star Game MVP push, many of his fellow All-Stars wouldn't be surprised to see the Hornets' guard take a swing at winning that award.

But, he also dealt with injuries as well as a hitch in his jump shot during his rookie season, which limited him to 14 games. Simmons , 29, is a 6-6 bench player, who is averaging just 6.9 points in 20.6 minutes per game for Orlando this season.

Curry, who played for Team Giannis, scored 17 points on 6-for-23 shooting (4-for-17 from 3), adding nine rebounds and seven assists.

Durant was named MVP, a clear choice with his second-half play in particular. This has resulted in a huge drop in team loyalty, as players hunt for teams that can get them championships so that they can have a legacy. I also get that the Pelicans seemingly did not want to give into the Lakers, as it seems as if Davis has been planning to team up with LeBron James the second he signed in LA. Here are the full rosters for Team LeBron and Team Giannis. His Raptors teammate Kyle Lowry didn't fare as well, with just three points, three rebounds and three assists in 12 minutes, shooting 1-5 from three.

From there, Garnett would go on finish his impressive career in 2016 as a 15-time All-Star and an National Basketball Association champion with the Boston Celtics in 2008. "To be that young and already at the top of the class as one of the elites in the game, it's a joy to watch his progression". A lot of global players know how to play the game the right way.

Dirk Nowitzki knocked down two 3-pointers late in the first quarter for Team Giannis. Maybe them playing together was avoided on objective. "Every single year nearly half the draft are from Europe", he said. "That's what I do, baby, that's' what I do", he said. "I just stated how I feel, I stated my intentions and I go on from there".
