Currently, only 5 active players are part of the club. Apart from James and Steph, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, and James Harden have appeared in 10+ All-Star games. However, this season, CP3 and Harden couldn’t make it to the cut. Importantly, Steph himself would have missed his spot for the game. When the league announced the starting lineup, Shai Alexander-Gilgeous stole his spot. Fortunately, the Warriors superstar found himself in the reserves.

As LBJ cleared the comparison for the number of appearances, let’s take a look at the All-Star MVPs. The Lakers forward leads the race in this round as well. James has secured 3x All-Star MVPs, out of which, he also holds a record. He became the youngest NBA player to win All-Star MVP at the age of 21 in 2006. Apart from that, he is also the scoring leader of the All-Star game with 426.

In his 9 appearances, Steph has won only 1 MVP. However, in one aspect, the Warriors superstar has the upper hand. He has dropped the third-highest score of 50 points in a single game, which also included the record for most three-pointers in a game (16).

Steph has always proven himself as a lethal force from the arc, and he never sighed away from the three-point contest. As of now, Curry has won two three-point shooting contests with a record of 31 points. Meanwhile, it was broken by WNBA star Sabrina Ionescu, who tallied 37 points in the last season.
