East vs. West: NBA All-Star game thread, lineups and MVP odds

The 65th NBA All-Star Game tips off from Toronto on Sunday evening. Paul George will take his place in the spotlight among the starting lineup with the East.

The NBA All-Star Game will put small ball on display with starting lineups minus a legit power forward, let alone a true center. That means the normally high-scoring showcase game could reach new heights as shots could be flying at a record pace.

Of course, Kobe Bryant may slow things down since he can't keep up that pace in his last season, but the sentimental favorite heading into the game is now a strong favorite to win the MVP award. Share your thoughts on the game in the comments where you can start by debating the MVP odds below. Paul George is among the half of the favorites for MVP at 25/1 to take home the hardware. What would it take for PG to win?
