LeBron’s Top 5 Career All Star Moments
In 11 All Star seasons, LeBron James has an All Star career as decorated as his NBA career.
He did let one moment slip through the cracks when in 2009, he declared his early entry to the 2010 Slam Dunk Competition to the delight of everyone only to eventually disappoint as he eluded the dunk contest once again. But other than that, The King has shone as bright as ever in the league’s mid-season spectacle.
LeBron has 2 All Star Game MVPs (2006 and 2008) and was the top vote getter in 2007, 2010, and 2014. He also owns the second highest single season All Star votes (2,940,823 in 2009) behind Dwight Howard and to top it all off, James is number three all-time in most All Star Game votes amassed behind Shaquille O`Neal (Second) and Kobe Bryant (First).
Before we enter yet another exciting All Star game, here are five of the most stellar performances from LeBron James during All Star Weekend, starting with number five:
