Just in case you missed it, here are the highlights from last night’s NBA All-Star action. In the celebrity game, comedian Kevin Hart won the MVP award despite being hilariously ejected from the game with two technicals. Dwight Howard’s East team beat Kevin Durant’s West team by 32 points in a blowout, but the game was as entertaining as ever this year. Hart was literally doing something funny every time he was on camera and made the game worth watching for once. Hart made Arne Duncan honorary MVP because Duncan actually had a great game, but for the sake of making the game entertaining, let’s hope Hart is back next year to defend his MVP title.
Kevin Hart accepting his MVP trophy had me (and Dwight Howard) dying laughing. Check it out:
The Rising Stars game was less of a blowout, but Team Chuck won pretty easily over Team Shaq, probably because Jeremy Lin and Blake Griffin didn’t play that much. It also helped that Kyrie Irving went 8-8 from three point range and had 34 points, winning him the MVP award. Blake Griffin, John Wall, Ricky Rubio, Demarcus Cousins and Paul George all put on a show with some awesome alley-oops and dunks (including a behind the back dunk from Wall). Friday wasn’t the most interesting day of All-Star Weekend, but it definitely gave some good highlights. Check them out:
