Adam Silver says National Basketball Association likely to televise All-Star Draft in 2019

LeBron James

Lebron was voted as the 2018 NBA All-Star MVP, the second time after 2006.

A new format for the NBA All-Star Game had a negligible impact on television ratings. "It worked out for not only the players, but the league and the fans, everybody".

Fans in the arena chanted, "We want Paul", during his media session over the weekend, prompting the Thunder forward to address the elephant in the room. One can imagine a blowout in either direction robbing the game of its newfound intensity.

"We wanted to kind of change the narrative of the All-Star Game being a joke", Kevin Durant added on.

Team LeBron had a much different look on game night, following injuries to four of his team's players: starter DeMarcus Cousins and All-Star reserves Kevin Love, John Wall and Kristaps Porzingis.

LeBron James put his name in the early conversation for game MVP, hitting his second and third three-pointers in the second to move to a game-high 15 points.

HSBC earns profit of $17.2bn in 2017
HSBC has reported pre-tax profit of $17.2bn for 2017, compared with $7.1bn the year before but below the $19.7bn expected by analysts.

At 33 years old, James was the oldest player in the game. Prior to the season opener between the Cavs and Irving's new team, the Boston Celtics, James and Irving exchanged a mere fist bump - although they did also share a postgame hug.

Team LeBron rallied from an 11-point first-quarter deficit to beat Team Stephen 148-145 in the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday.

He knows, too, that whatever he says is going to be dissected, parsed and studied, the outside world trying to get a read on his future by analyzing his words. But the Lakers will make a pitch to George this summer, after a year of rumors linking him to LA. With players more accessible, relatable and fun than ever, it continues to defy logic that the league's signature event should be so sterile and corporate. "He found me and I was able to make the left-hand layup over Draymond [Green]".

Curry said he tried to keep that in mind as he went through the weekend. Team Stephen grew their lead to 11 while LeBron and KD got some rest. James has a second home in Los Angeles to go along with a budding Hollywood production company, and has spoken highly of Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball (even if James isn't a big fan of Lonzo's father).

"It is different", O'Neal told Sporting News this weekend. With 14 all-star starts, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar James is now just one behind Kobe Bryant for the most starts overall. The notion that his expression should be reserved for matters pertaining to basketball was belittling not just to the substance of that expression, but to the craft itself. It's about playing good basketball every single night. "But when you get a chance to have Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and you know they're teammates already, and then you mix them with myself and Kemba [Walker], and LeBron, and you could see the mix and it just worked".
