The All-Star Game is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited. This has been one of the more entertaining All-Star Weekends in recent history for me. Ben Simmons and Kyle Kuzma dominated the Rising Stars game with 28 and 25 points respectively and had me on the edge of my seat for the entirety of the game. Last night in the skills portion of our weekend, Jayson Tatum took down the skills competition on a half-court shot to beat the otherwise dominant Trae Young.
Hamidou Diallo won the dunk contest fairly easily (if were being completely honest) after jumping over my guy Shaq and paying homage to the great Vince Carter with his own impression of one of the classic dunks in recent history. And finally… my man Joe Harris beat the Greatest Shooter Ever in a 3PT Shootout that came down to the very end. All in all, I’m excited for the new things Adam Silver and the NBA try to implement for future All-Star Weekend Activities.

LeBron James O 22.5 PTS -110
LeBron’s game is tailored made for this type of exhibition. When the best players on the planet surround him, he is so much more dangerous as his elite basketball knowledge and instincts lead him to rack up a ridiculous amount of buckets in a glorified showcase game. LeBron hitting the over here is elementary, my dear (I’m sorry, I had to) and I’m riding with the King with a squad full of players he hand selected.
