Surrounded by an abundance of friends and family members, LeBron James was the center of attention at the postgame photo shoot following Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game. With the game tied and under a minute remaining, James stole an errant pass, dribbled up the sideline and crossed the first defender in his path, Amare Stoudemire, at the 3-point line before rising up to dunk in the face of defender No. 2, Dirk Nowitzki. While JamesĂ˘ÂÂ slam is the play that everybody will most remember from the game, it is not the only reason he received top player honors. Like he has done all season, James showed the world why he is the league’s best all-around player, finishing with 27 points (12-for-22 shooting), handing out nine assists, grabbing eight rebounds, blocking two shots and making two steals. He fell one assist and two rebounds short of the first All-Star Game triple-double since 1997. Check out numerous photos below and this highlights video.
