NBA All-Star Game: East 138 - West 133

In a game played in the Chicago Stadium, Michael Jordan had to be the star. It was his coming-out party with 40 points (second highest mark in All-Star History). He made 17-23 in field goals and 6-6 in free throws. He scored 16 points in the last 6 minutes, securing the victory and the MVP. Until this moment Jordan "simply" was a star, but his Bulls were 1-10 in playoff games. This game was the beginning of a legend.
Dominique Wilkins scored 29 points for the East, and Karl Malone (22 points) and Hakeem Olajuwon (21 points) were Western best scorers.
In his 17th All-Star Game, Kareem Abdul Jabbar had 10 points, becoming scoring leader with a total amount of 247. Oscar Robertson with 246 was the previous leader.

MVP: Michael Jordan (East)
