Win Butler Obliterates NBA Celebrity All-Star Game, ESPN’s Sage Steele Makes Things Wildly Uncomfortable

Rob Slater on February 13, 2016

Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler finally got his due last night at the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game in Toronto. Butler was arguably robbed of the MVP award last year by Kevin Hart, who did his dumb comedy shtick all over the court en route to winning the award. 

This year, Butler left no doubt for Team Canada, recording a double double with 15 points and 14 rebounds and doing it from inside, outside and everywhere in between. ArcadeFireTube has your highlights below of Butler’s clinic. 

Things were going well until ESPN’s Sage Steele decided she was in charge of the microphone during Butler’s acceptance speech. When Butler attempted to give credit to Canada’s healthcare system, Steele cut him off by saying, “We’re talking about celebrity stuff, not politics.”

This type of behavior isn’t new for Steele, who fired off an interesting tweet about President Obama during his appearance on Colin Cowherd’s show. Watch the clip below.

Butler then had to do what all MVPs have to–visit with the media. The questions are mostly softballs, with Butler joking a few times that he “does some music on the side.” One guy asks about the similarities between driving down the lane and writing The Suburbs, which the frontman laughs off. Watch it below.
