Pelicans' Anthony Davis has already had an All-Star Weekend to forget

Team LeBron, down by 20 in the second half, finally got firing and went on to beat Team Giannis 178-164 in the All-Star Game on Sunday night.

LeBron might have had some ulterior motives when drafting his team after selecting Kevin Durant with his first pick.

When Davis asked to be traded last month, the All-Star forward provided the front office with a list of teams he'd prefer to be traded to.

"I thought we put on a great show tonight", said Kemba Walker, Charlotte's lone player in the game. Whatever team I get traded to, I'll play for that year [and] make the best of it.

Wade and Nowitzki swapped jerseys following the Heat's 112-101 victory over the Mavericks on Wednesday in Dallas.

"It's going to be a treat", LeBron said.

"Nothing that happened today changed my mind, if you're asking that", he said, when a reporter asked Sunday whether he has made a decision about next season. The front office wanted to get the drama over with and cash out on the offer the Lakers were willing to give right then and there.

According to Mello's manager, Moe Shalizi, at least 15-20 million people attended the virtual concert across 60 million servers. An encore performance took place this morning for fans who missed it the first time around.

Giannis threw everything he had at the game but couldn't stop the momentum Team LeBron produced as they stormed to the win. Walker is one of the stronger scorers in the league, so he also can rack up the points quickly if he gets hot and I think his teammates will be looking to get him some open shots tonight.

"Being able to hold that trophy up that night, in Miami in front of our fans, it was a night that I'll never forget".

Wade, 37, is a 13-time All-Star who entered the league in 2003 after the Miami Heat selected him with the fifth pick in the National Basketball Association draft.

Davis began by shutting down rumors that he wouldn't want to join the Boston Celtics, but he said much more than that.

Antetokounmpo was the most dominant player on the court as he finished with 38 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists.

Wade would not get a significant amount of minutes in this game, but it would still be exciting to watch him and LeBron complete a transition alley-oop connection for one last time.
