Sometimes you don’t know what to do when you win your first MVP trophy…. but if you’re Kyrie Irving you’ve got LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to help you out!
All Star game MVP, Kyrie Irving was all over the place tonight but this one on one battle with Dwight Howard was definitely something to remember!
I personally would take Kevin Hart over Skip Bayless on ESPN’s First Take any day of the week. The dude is funny but also has pretty good knowledge of the game.
Tonights Rising Stars MVP was Detroit Piston, Andre Drummond. Drummond scored 30 points and 25 rebounds but even Andre couldn’t react quick enough to save his MVP trophy from hitting the ground!
Kevin Durant has been on a tear during the month of January, averaging 37 points during his last 11 games. Tonight Durant scored 46 points on 17-25 shooting, including 6-7 from the three point line. His 46 points helped secure a 105-97 win against the Portland Trail Blazers.
If you haven’t been watching the Miami Heat and Lebron James, you may not know he has been playing at his best. Nobody thought the 2 time Champ, 4 time MVP could get any better but he has started this season very efficiently. If you remember last season James went on a roll during the month of February averaging an unheard of 64% from the field. He continued his great shooting averaging 56.3% from the field and 40.7% from three. His shooting helped the Heat capture their second straight championship and a second straight finals MVP for Lebron.
This season he has started red hot again as he is shooting a career best 61.7% from the field and a ridiculous 51.7% from three. This shooting has him third in scoring averaging 27 points per game right behind Kevin Love and current leader Kevin Durant. Last night may have been his best game as he torched the Dallas Mavs for 39 points on 14-18 shooting for 77.8%. Take a look at his shot chart below as we may see more of this from King James in the future.
