As you would expect, the NBA All-Star Game featured virtually no defense and Miami Heat star LeBron James is one of the beneficiaries of the lack of contention. James nailed a three-point shot midway through the third quarter and it was a historic shot in his ninth NBA All-Star Game appearance.
It was James’ twenty third three-pointer in his all-star career, which breaks the record of twenty two, which was previously held by Ray Allen.
LeBron James has set the record for most career All-Star Game 3-pointers, breaking Ray Allen’s record of 22.

It is crazy to think back and remember that James was often criticized for his willingness to take the deep shot early in his career and his lack of makes. Oh, how the times have changed.
James has picked up his play in the second half after scoring only ten points in the first half. With a full quarter left to play, you can expect “King James” to take it to another level and attempt to put the game away and earn yet another All-Star Game MVP.
