Following a dazzling array of dribble drives, highlight reel assists and several huge three-pointers, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving took home the 2014 Kia All-Star MVP award. Irving, helping lead a comeback win for the Eastern Conference, finished the game with 31 points (on 14-of-17 shooting), five rebounds and 14 assists. He led the East with a plus-14 point differential.
“It’s a great honor,” Irving said. “We had a few MVPs. Everyone out here today is an MVP.”
Following the game, Irving signed and tweeted the image above, dedicating his award to the city of Cleveland.
“I try not to get too high or too low,” Irving said. “It’s a great accomplishment, especially bringing this back to Cleveland. That’s the most important thing.”
