Kevin Durant Wins 2012 NBA All-Star Game MVP

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is your 2012 NBA All-Star Game MVP winner. Durant ended the night scoring 36 points and picking up 7 rebounds with 3 assists and 3 steals. Durant even had this dazzling dunk in the game, flying right through the lane for the dunk. This was just one of many dunks for Durant on the night.

Durant hit on just three of his eight three-point attempts, but the Durantula just scored points in bunches to help the West win the game. Had the West lost, it's likely the MVP award would have gone to Miami Heat's LeBron James, who also finished with 36 points, which including some late impress three-point shots to put the East in position to win or tie.
