NBA All-Star weekend: Discuss LeBron James and Kyrie Irving representing Cavs in main event

It's the All-Star game, and the Cleveland Cavaliers are well represented

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight on TNT is the NBA All-Star game. The Cleveland Cavaliers will be well-represented. LeBron James, in his first year representing Cleveland since 2010, will be a starter for the East once again. He's always a threat to be the MVP of this game, and judging from his comments about Stephen Curry and James Harden rightfully dominating the early regular season MVP race, might be anxious to steer the conversation back towards himself for a night. He's seemed at ease for most of the weekend, telling reporters that the Cavs are where they should be.

Kyrie Irving will be competing in his third All-Star game in four professional seasons. After starting last season, he will come off the bench behind John Wall of the Washington Wizards and Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors. His minutes, as such, will likely be limited, but it's pretty nuts that it's the third time he's played in the game at just age 22.

Grab your drink of choice, settle in on the couch, and enjoy the Cavs and best talent the NBA has to offer with FTS. See you in the comments.
