It was quite the homecoming Friday night for Magic Gaming’s first All-Star, Joshua “unguardable” Hunter.
The 21-year-old guard pulled off an impressive double dip, being named MVP of both the 3v3 and 5v5 All-Star games of the NBA 2K League.
The New York native led his 3v3 team to sweeps of two others in his hometown and then scored 32 points, five assists and three steals in the 5v5 matchup between conferences.
“I came into the night with the goal of winning at least one of the MVP awards, and I ended up with two,” Hunter said. “I’m definitely blessed for that one. I did it in front of my family, so that was even better.”
Hunter said previously that his parents, brother and nephew would be in attendance on Friday.
Hunter scored 12 points and dished out three assists in the first 3v3 series against Team ANT.
Then, in the second 3v3 series, he scored 14 points and had 2.5 assists per game.
The performance earned him the MVP award in that tournament.
“I feel like I’m the best player in the world,” he said after the event in a press release. “While we haven’t had the success to go along with it yet, I believe eventually we’ll get to prove it. Being with all the stars of the league and then showing that I was the best here, it felt great.”
