The National Basketball Association All-Star Game Most Valuable Player (MVP) is an annual National Basketball Association (NBA) award given to the player(s) voted best of the annual All-Star Game . The award was established in 1953 when NBA officials decided to designate an MVP for each year's game. The league also re-honored players from the previous two All-Star Games. The voting is conducted by a panel of media members, who cast their vote after the conclusion of the game. No All-Star Game MVP was named in 1999 as the game was canceled due to the league's lockout . The current recipient is Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (pictured) . Bob Pettit and Kobe Bryant are the only two players to win the All-Star Game MVP four times. Oscar Robertson , Michael Jordan , Shaquille O'Neal , and LeBron James have each won the award three times, while Bob Cousy , Julius Erving , Isiah Thomas , Magic Johnson , Karl Malone , Allen Iverson , and Russell Westbrook have all won twice.
