    I had a sneaky feeling he would win it. Also had a feeling Klay would burst

    Congrats EGoooo

    It was lovely to see Ego put eggs all over the faces of the commentators who were juggling Klay and Kyrie's balls all night

    I thought Klay would win it, but EGo had a chance simply because teams like the Rockets and Warriors that have great shooters and shoot in volume aren't going to get as tired as easily. These guys are jacking 3's left and right in a game. I was more worried he was going to blow his back out in the middle of a rack.

    Great job by what seems to be a humble, down-to-earth guy.

    I really need to contain my composure when it comes to anything Rockets......You couldn't tell me those weren't game-winning threes.

    Way to go EG!!!!!!

    Plus no team has ever made the finals after their pseudo-MVP misses 10 half court shots in a solo spot light.

    "Usually I need just one shot, but can I ask for three shots"

    - Curry

    Goes on to brick about 10 shots and gives up....

    What's funny, is how it was set up and designed for him to be the hero.

    All these stars gets 10k for each make.

    Curry make one half court to bump it to 500k, aka 370k shot.

    Fails.

    Quick let his son dunk for that 370k!

    He should've said in the interview: "My competition was a little flat tonight."
