CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant has won every major NBA award there is to win: Rookie of the Year, MVP, Finals MVP and All-Star Game MVP.
Now, he’s just padding the Hall of Fame résumé, which also includes two Olympic gold medals and 2010 FIBA World Cup MVP.
Durant won his second All-Star Game MVP award with a 31-point performance in Team LeBron’s 178-164 victory against Team Giannis on Sunday.
"It's all sweet to me. I mean, it's hard to rank. Everything's special," Durant said. "But it's cool to be out there with some of the best players to ever play the game, and to win an MVP here in front of my family and friends is pretty sweet. I just keep trying to rack them up, I guess."

Durant was engaged from start to finish, scoring 10 points in the first quarter and 11 in the fourth, and in Durant fashion, he was an assassin in those bookend quarters. He shot 4-for-5 in the opening quarter and 4-for-4, including 3-for-3 on 3-pointers, in the final quarter.
For a while, it looked like Team Giannis would win the game and Antetokounmpo, who finished with 38 points, would become the first international player to win the All-Star MVP.
