At All-Star Game, Anthony Davis finds himself in spotlight

Whether it's Dirk Nowitzki coaching Luka Doncic on Team World or Dwayne Wade playing his final All-Star game alongside LeBron James, this year has been considered one of the most hyped up All-Star weekends of all time.

Before Sunday night, the last time the 76ers featured two All-Stars was in 2002 when the game was in Philadelphia.

Davis played a team-low five minutes (and scored five points) in Team LeBron's 178-164 win over Team Giannis.

Meanwhile, Giannis posted a game-high 38 point on 17-of-23 shooting from the field.

The 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend consisted of a few trials and tribulations that mounted to a big time talent winning the MVP of the All-Star Game itself. Simmons can put up some flashy assists, grab some rebounds and find some easy lay-ins and dunks to have an inflated line and push for the MVP honor if Team LeBron gets the win. Wade finished second in fan voting with a total of 2,208,598 votes, but did not make it to the lineup as he expectedly got low results in player and media voting. The second one I was like, 'Hey, I'm going to step back a little more and see what happens, ' and it went in, too.

The Charleston, S.C. native didn't shoot well in the 3-point contest Saturday night, but he made up for it in the All-Star Game.

Team LeBron allowed 69 points in the second half after giving up 95 points in the first two quarters. And when Dirk made another 3 early in the second quarter, the Team Giannis sideline, the arena and Twittersphere went insane, with Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tweeting "That's what you do @swish41 III".

Now that All-Star festivities have come to an end, the time for individual accolades has as well.

In Stephen Curry's homecoming, Kevin Durant stole the show. We know he's a very, very high-level basketball player, and from being around him, you see that he's just a regular dude.

Dirk Nowitzki knocked down two 3-pointers late in the first quarter for Team Giannis.

North Carolina native Anthony Hamilton sang the USA national anthem with a soulful twist that drew comparisons to Marvin Gaye's legendary version during the 1983 All-Star Game. "So I rushed a couple because I always had that in my mind, 'You've got to finish, you've got to finish, '" Nowitzki said. Davis said that he plans to test free agency in the summer of 2020 regardless of wherever he lands, and when asked about the Celtics, Davis confirmed that Boston is on his "list". I go as far as I take myself, and once I had that confidence inside of me and I believed it every single day, and nothing was taken away from it, then it made this a lot easier, to just be who I am and really be the person I'm destined to be.
