Kevin Durant won the 2012 NBA All-Star MVP with 36 points on 14-25 shooting, with seven rebounds and three assists Sunday as the West won 152-149. It is his first All-Star MVP and a clear demonstration of the next level Durant is at. You have to wonder if the actual MVP is far behind this season.
LeBron James also had 36 but turned the ball over on the final possession out of a double-team. Because, really, you knew that had to happen for us to have something stupid to write about tonight.
