Moreover, he is also the all-time top scorer in All-star games with 385 points. The All-Star game has given us any memorable moments ever since it started.

LeBron James on his first All-Star appearance
In the post-game conference following the win against the Golden State Warriors, James shared his memories about the All-Star weekend. He said, “It was incredible. First of all, I’m a kid from Akron, Ohio, and I was in Los Angeles for my first All-Star weekend. It was an incredible moment for me, my family. Obviously, I wanted to be in the All-Star game, it still kinda hurts me a little bit but I got over it. It’s just being around Melo, and D-Wade, and the rest of the guys, was surreal.”
He continued, “For it to be my rookie year and to be playing in the rookie challenge is something that I would probably never forget. I got the opportunity to wear some dope shoes that night too, the’ Zoom Generation 1 Wheats’. That’s one of my favorite sneakers of all time. So I was really hyped. It was a long, long time ago but I’m happy though”.
The All-Star game will take place in Atlanta on 7th March. The game will have some of the biggest stars of the NBA like Stephen Curry, LeBron James, and Luka Doncic take to the stage and compete against one another.
