One follow-up footnote to Sunday’s All-Star Game: Dwyane Wade, for the record, was not a unanimous selection for All-Star Game MVP with his 28 points, 11 assists, six rebounds and five steals in the East’s 141-139 triumph.

But it was close.

Wade received nine of 12 available votes from a panel that included nine media members, one of whom was yours truly.

Cleveland’s LeBron James received two votes and Toronto’s Chris Bosh received one.

The panel consists of nine media members and three fan votes Wade wins All-Star MVP by vote of 9-2-1 based on online polling. The player with the highest online vote total gets two votes and one vote goes to the player who finishes second in fan balloting.
