Peloton instructor Alex Toussaint was named the MVP of the 2022 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.

CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett might have been the star of the show at the 2022 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game in Cleveland on Friday night.

But it also came in a losing effort.

As a result, the two-time All-Pro wasn't selected as the event's Most Valuable Player, as the home crowd at Cleveland's Wolstein Center might have preferred. Rather, those honors went to Peloton star instructor Alex Toussaint, who scored 18 points for Team Walton, which defeated Garrett's Team 'Nique by a score of 65-51 in what marked the first major event of the 2022 NBA All-Star Weekend.

"It feels very good. Shout out to my team right here. Shout out to my coach for letting me play in a lot of the game," the 27-year-old Toussaint said after the game on ESPN's national broadcast. "Shoutout to my mom and my family watching, all of my Peloton instructors... shout out to everybody. This one is for the team, this one is for the game. I told y'all. I told y'all.

"The motto is when we stay ready, we ain't gotta get ready, so it's just the game of life baby, that's it."

Toussaint's impressive performance came in a game that not only featured Garrett, but also Browns running back Kareem Hunt, rappers Machine Gun Kelly and Jack Harlow, Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb, as well as former Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao.
