It didn't take long for Dwyane Wade to find his buddy LeBron James in the air for another breathe-stopping dunk. The East didn't have enough all together to hang with the West, but they had some moments. One of them, just moments into the game.
Pretty, huh? It gave us a glimpse of what used to be when Wade and James played together for four years in Miami. This was a regular thing. Now we have to wait for the All-Star game for it. And they weren't done either.
Wade was making it a point to find his teammates, especially LeBron. Wade finished the game with 8 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals in 23 minutes. LeBron had 13 points and 7 assists in only 20 minutes. It was one of the highest scoring games in history as the West ran away with it 196-173.
This will be one of the last times they play together as Wade's career comes to an end in the coming years. LeBron is slated to still be a part of Team USA, but Wade will not. We will have to wait until next All-Star break to see them put on the same jersey....we think (they are both free agents this summer).
OK, OK, OK...if you want to come back to Miami you can, LeBron. Just don't make a big deal about this time.
Anyway, the game didn't have much defense and the West took the game in the second half. With the victory, Russell Westbrook won his second straight MVP award.
