Kyrie Irving Wins MVP Of 2014 NBA All-Star Game

Kyrie Irving

Even Kyrie Irving needs help sometimes. After the East stole a 163-155 win over the West in this year’s NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans, the 21-year-old with two All-Star Games selections, one Rookie of the Year, one Three-Point Shootout win, one Rising Stars Challenge MVP and now one All-Star Game MVP wasn’t acting like he’d been here before. (Even though he could’ve.) He wasn’t campaigning for better Cleveland teammates. (Even though he should’ve.) He just needed a little help with the proper All-Star MVP pose. Read More »

Steve Nash’s Self-Deprecating Tweet About All-Star Game Defense

Steve Nash

The 2014 All-Star Game was missing the floppy-haired Canadian that’s spent the last two February breaks resting an often broken down 40-year-old body.

In a 2014 All-Star game that saw more combined points than ever before, Steve Nash lamented the lack of defense. Read More »

The 2014 NBA All-Star Game is more than halfway done, so it’s the perfect time to re-live the player introductions. Pharrell played his hits, Busta Rhymes came out, Snoop Dogg was in the house, and a lot of our favorite NBA players graciously jogged out for the adoring crowd. Maybe Derrick Rose wasn’t glaring at the other all-stars as they danced, but the introductions still got us hyped. Read More »

Video: Stephen Curry Warmed Up For The All-Star Game With Left-Handed 3-Pointers

Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry is not only a better shooter than you with his right hand, you can’t outshoot him with the left hand, either. Curry hit just 1-of-5 from deep in the first half tonight for three points, but beforehand, he was warming up by shooting three-pointers with his off hand. It’s just too easy for him out here.
