When you take a bunch of celebrities and put them on a basketball court, the highlight is probably not going to be the gameplay.
At the 2017 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, Team East beat Team West by over 30 points, but most of the talk centered around Mark Cuban's jersey and two points scored by a 14-year-old kid battling a chronic disease. And while NBA impersonator Brian Armstrong did show off a few impressive basketball moves during the game, one of the "Stranger Things" kids showed him up with splits on the sideline.
Mark Cuban wore a #46 jersey, which many took as a dig against Trump.
I know Mark Cuban well. He backed me big-time but I wasn't interested in taking all of his calls.He's not smart enough to run for president!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 12, 2017
It was seen as a response to this Trump tweet from earlier this week.
The NBA tried to keep the Mannequin Challenge relevant during the game.
Nick Cannon ate nachos from the bench. Do you think they helped his game?
Caleb McLaughlin, from "Stranger Things," showed off his moves on the sideline.
when ur friend spends over 2K on a trip to go see Kris Wu play at the NBA celebrity all stars game and legit fly home straight after 😧😧— tamina (@BOBBYCYD_) February 18, 2017
Kris Wu probably had the most dedicated fan base of all the celebrities at the game.
And a few viewers just weren't impressed with the choice of celebrities this year.
Some thought that Win Butler should be the MVP for the second year in a row.
But Brandon Armstrong, known for his on-point impressions of NBA players, won.
But Jarrius Robertson, a kid battling chronic liver disease, stole the show.
This kid is an inspiration to us all.
I mean, you just can't help but smile when you see this picture.
He was the true MVP in the hearts of many.
