The 'MVP of every NBA All-Star Game' quiz

We have officially reached the NBA All-Star break. The Bucks are the best team in basketball, while the Lakers, Clippers and the defending champion Toronto Raptors all look like legitimate contenders. Zion Williamson is for real, but so is Ja Morant. The Knicks are still as awful as ever, but so are the Warriors, and the Spurs might miss the postseason for the first time in over two decades. So now the Association will take a few days to regroup before getting back to what is certainly the most wide-open playoff race it has seen in some time. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Before we jump too far ahead, there is an All-Star Game to be played. The NBA has held the annual midseason showcase since 1951 and have handed out a whopping 72 MVP Awards. So with that in mind, how many of the MVPs from every game can you name in six minutes?

Good luck!

Can you name the MVP of every NBA All-Star Game?

The 1999 All-Star Game was canceled due to a work stoppage, and there were co-MVPs in 1959, 1993, 2000 and 2009.
