Kyrie Irving had 31 points and 14 assists, including 15 points in the fourth quarter to become the second-youngest player to ever win the MVP award Sunday in the East’s 163-155 comeback victory.

Now he is second only to LeBron James as the youngest MVP in All-Star history. James was 21 years, 1 month and 20 days when he won his first MVP in 2006; Irving was 21 years, 10 months and 24 days on Sunday.

“Kyrie is special,” James said. “His ability to shoot the ball, get into the lane, make shots around the rim, he has a total package. And I’ve always known that.”
