NBA All-Star Game MVP Prediction

Jayson Tatum loves an exhibition game. At Jamal Crawford’s CrawsOver pro-am game in August 2022, the 24-year-old had 20 points and five threes in the second quarter before the game was terminated due to condensation on the court.

The four-time All-Star is also competing in the three-point contest and it could turn out to be a very enjoyable weekend for the Boston Celtics forward in Utah.

If the threes are falling early doors, expect Tatum to empty the clip and look to become the first Celtic to win All-Star MVP since Larry Bird in 1982.

Our prediction – Jayson Tatum to win All-Star Game MVP @ +1000
