NBA All-Star Game MVP Prediction & Odds, 2/17/19

This is the second NBA All-Star Game MVP trophy of Durant's career. MVP Kevin Durant scored 31 points for Team LeBron, the one that James drafted and led to victory in the captain's-choice format for a second consecutive season.

Brooklyn guard Joe Harris hit 6-of-7 three-point attempts last week in the first half against the Raptors so maybe he shouldn't have been a surprising 3-Point Contest victor on Saturday night. Team LeBron took 91 three-point attempts, an all-star game record, and hit 35. He finished with 20 points and drilled 6-of-10 3-pointers and is one of the unsung free agents the Knicks will look at.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is looking to become the first global player to win the All-Star game MVP leading all scorers with 31 points on eight dunks for Team Giannis.

Iverson expresses his great fondness of Curry's game as the two embrace. Walker is one of the stronger scorers in the league, so he also can rack up the points quickly if he gets hot and I think his teammates will be looking to get him some open shots tonight.

Although championships don't make a player the best, it makes complete sense that they are better recognized. "As I said [at Thursday's dinner] in my speech, we've had way more fantastic moments than we've had not".

"It's been fun, we've communicated a lot, he's around a lot, he does his rehab two hours a day and then he's shooting a little more", Nowitzki said. "I have a love for the city and the fans". George, Durant, James Harden, and Kawhi Leonard have all elevated the standard of wing play across the league, particularly George in his exemplary season.

Stephen Curry's mother, Sonya, who helped organize the event along with Chris Paul's mom, Robin, says Deloris summed up meeting when she told everyone, "We are blessed to be a blessing" to others. One of the top players, definitely, as far as playing for the first half of the season, and he's been doing it for some years now.

During a group interview with dozens of reporters and a follow-up interview with NBA TV, Davis's muddled and contradictory answers made him sound like basketball's answer to Rudy Giuliani.

"The suggestion actually came from a fan in an email to me", commissioner Adam Silver said Saturday at his All-Star press conference, according to ASAP Sports.

Behind Nowitzki's 14 All-Star appearances, the Maverick with the next-most is Rolando Blackman, with four, then Mark Aguirre with three. And Curry made the free throw to seal the four-point play. "I just really appreciate that". And when Dirk made another 3 early in the second quarter, the Team Giannis sideline, the arena and Twittersphere went insane, with Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tweeting "That's what you do @swish41 III".
