Kenneth Faried’s Rising Stars MVP highlights (Video)

Feb 16, 2013, 1:29 PM EDT

Kenneth Faried claimed the MVP of the Rising Stars game by playing his normal game. He played hard, attacked the rim for some tremendous finishes, and worked the glass with the relentless energy he shows during every game he laces up his sneakers for.

Just as the video above shows.

Even in the slow motion of the phantom cam, Faried’s activity stands out. He’s always moving towards the rim (at least when he’s not flashing three point range no one knew he had), always moving towards the ball and/or the rim, and always playing a physical style. Not to mention he’s also always smiling, showing the joy he has playing this game.

Sure, this game didn’t offer much defense (except from Faried who more than once challenged shots at the rim), but that only further enabled Faried’s active style to be effective. Enough to be the MVP.

    This game is ridiculous. Picking players was an ok idea but they need to play more defense. 20 something deficit is hard enough to watch but what’s worse is guys getting a free pass to the rim every time. All star weekend is getting worse every year. Just hope the slam dunk contest isn’t as horrible as its been.
