I think we can all agree that the NBA All Star Game is not what it used to be, but there's one thing that hasn't changed: the presentation of the NBA All Star Game MVP. NBA All Star Weekend will always be a staple for the basketball world. The best basketball players in the world gather to showcase their three point finesse, dunking, dribbling, and overall abilities on the basketball court that lead up to the apex of the weekend: the full scale All-Star Game on Sunday where we get to see the best current players in the sport in an East vs West battle.

Despite complaints from fans about all the changes and chaos in the current run-of-show of All Star Weekend, the matchup between the Eastern and Western Conferences always manages to bring out the best in the best players in the league. At the end of the day, you don't make your way to becoming an NBA All-Star without an unbeatable competitive edge, so even though players aren't actually playing for their team (or for anything, for that matter), the "East" and "West" on their jerseys is enough to bring out the competition. I mean, Damian Lillard dropped 39 points in the 2024 All Star Game to be named the NBA All Star Game MVP. And that's not even the best NBA All Star MVP performance we've ever seen, but here are a few of the best.
