Team Giannis wins the NBA All-Star Game

Team Giannis wins the NBA All-Star Game

The 2023 NBA All-Star Game belonged to Team Giannis, who defeated Team LeBron 184-175. For the first time, the Lakers star lost as team captain in a special game. Before tonight, James was 5-0. In the end, Celtics player Jayson Tatum stole the show, earning MVP honors after breaking Anthony Davis’ All-Star Game scoring record with 55 points in the win.

This was LeBron’s 19th All-Star selection, which ties him with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most in history. But Abdul-Jabbar missed one of the Games, and LeBron didn’t, making him the all-time leader in All-Star Games played.

LeBron suffered a concussion on his right hand, which occurred when he tried to block Pascal Siakam and got his finger caught in the rim.

The All-Star teams were established in a one-of-a-kind draft, about half an hour before kickoff. The All-Stars took to the stage, LeBron and Giannis stood at podiums as if it were a political debate. This is the sixth year that the captains have chosen teams, regardless of conference. That Draft was always days before the All-Star Game weekend.
