LeBron James looked locked in from the word go on Sunday night, and it seems that he was on a personal mission.
“We wanted this win,” James said. “They beat us the last three years and they had a lot of bragging rights, so to be able to come through being down 18 was huge.”
Point guard Kyrie Irving ended up being the MVP, but James’ contributions were certainly key as well. King James certainly seemed to be working out a bit of aggression after all of the talk that Kevin Durant may have surpassed the reigning champs as an individual talent out on the floor.
Power forward Blake Griffin probably would have been MVP if the West had won, but we will never know the outcome of that hypothetical. The festivities were quite nice this year though, apart from the awkward dunk contest that was saved by John Wall’s individual brilliance. That was an amazing thing to witness as a DC b-ball fan, and the future certainly looks bright when it comes their backcourt. Bradley Beal came one shot away from winning the three point shootout, which would have been quite a coup.
That is all for today, but will leave some fortune cookie wisdom at your doorstep just in case it pleases the mind.
