The 71st NBA All-Star Weekend 2022 took place in Cleveland, Ohio and celebrated the league’s landmark 75th Anniversary Season, capping off with the annual All-Star Game on Sunday night which saw Team LeBron defeat Team Durant 163-160.

Steph Curry was named All-Star Game MVP for the first time in his illustrious career after producing the greatest long-distance shooting performance in All-Star Game history. Curry made 16 3-pointers and scored 50 points and was presented with the newly redesigned MVP trophy that in 2020 was renamed in honour of Kobe Bryant, who won a record-tying four of them.

Cleveland last hosted NBA All-Star in 1997, when the NBA commemorated its 50th anniversary. The All-Star Game’s return to Cleveland was particularly poignant for All-Star captain, LeBron James who is the Cavaliers franchise’s greatest player, having led them to their only NBA championship in 2016, and Steph Curry who, like his All-Star captain, was born in the same hospital in Akron.
