Let’s start with the Rising Stars Game. We got a glimpse at the future of the NBA, and it is bright! We saw some high class performances from the young talent. Fans we’re especially impressed with Keegan Murray, Jonathan Kuminga and Quentin Grimes.

Next up was the Celebrity All-Star Game. This game is known to be fun and light hearted, and there were definitely some funny moments, but we also witnessed peak athleticism in D.K Metcalf, who won the MVP and fans couldn’t get enough.

One of our favorite competitions every year is the Three-Point Contest. Damien Lillard won the trophy this year, but there were great performances from multiple participants. Fans were shouting out some of their favorites!

This year’s Dunk Contest did not disappoint. The winner was Mac McClung, who showed off his jumping ability in fantastic form. He achieved a 50 across the board on three of his dunks and came close on one with 49, and the fans were excited!

This was the first year for the G-League Next-Up Game, and it was fun to watch. The NBA gave a platform for aspiring players to be able to shine, and the fans were supportive.

Finally, let’s talk about the night that all these other events were built around; The All-Star Game. We had two Celtics as the top scorers, with team Giannis winning. The fans really enjoyed the event and had a lot to say.
