Continued: Love's All-Star night: no dancing, no dazzling dunks

“I did say it with half a smile,” Vogel said, “and they all laughed at me.”

Afterward, players such as James and Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade seemingly passed the torch to a younger generation of players on display through All-Star weekend by instructing Irving how to display the game MVP trophy properly.

“I just wanted him to have his moment,” James said. “And the moment is holding that trophy above your head. It’s the few moments in our year when you do that. Winning a championship, winning the MVP and the other championship is winning the MVP of the All-Star Game. He seemed like he didn’t know exactly what to do and I just want to try to give him a little tip.”

Love hadn’t played a game since Wednesday, and he did that in a victory over Denver when he played on a leg still hurting after he was kneed in the thigh the week before.

“I felt fine, obviously didn’t have much legs,” Love said. “I knew I wouldn’t play as many minutes as I would at home, but it was a lot of fun. Hopefully, I’ll be back in New York next year and enjoy it again.”

The 2015 All-Star Game will be split between the New York and Brooklyn franchises, with the Knicks and Madison Square Garden hosting the Sunday game and the Nets and Barclays Center hosting the Friday and Saturday events.

Love left the newly renamed Smoothie King Center after Sunday’s game and headed for the airport for a flight home on owner Glen Taylor’s private jet. The Wolves resume their schedule after a six-day All-Star break by playing Indiana at home Wednesday before they head west on a five-game trip.

“I’m going to rest tomorrow and hopefully Tuesday and be ready to go for Wednesday,” Love said.
