This is it! Every fan of basketball just waits for this event during the regular season. 3 days when the best basketball players compare each other and show all the best they can. For one player it may be a time to rest and take power for the rest of the season but for the others, it’s an opportunity to show their advantage and maybe make a deal with sponsors.

TEAM USA VS TEAM WORLD

Successful revenge for the last year lost by Team USA. Easy win 161 -144, the match was under control by team USA. We did see a lot of fun and a lot of dunks. Team World was leading only by 1 point. The biggest lead by Team USA over the match was 17 points. Kyle Kuzma was chosen the MVP and scored 35 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and a block. Impressive!

SKILLS CHALLENGE

Dribble between obstacles, pass accuracy, layup and three-point shot. Same things every year in this event. All the players which start in this competition were creative. The biggest impression did Jayson Tatum when in the final of the event. He was 3 meters behind Trae Young when he decided to throw 3 point shot from a half court and he did it. Again pretty impressive.

THREE-POINT CONTEST

Favourite was, of course, Stephen Curry, who was supposed to confirm his domination in the league in the 3-point shoot. He made in final series 9 3-point shots in a row, but that was not enough for a win. Joe Harris was the guy who surprised everybody. The last 5 shots – which were counted double – has decided. The winner scored 5/5 in the last rack and he beats opponents in the final series.

SLAM DUNK CONTEST

Hamidou Diallo was the winner of this year event. He showed confidence, almost all of his dunks were made in the first try what, as we can say, was the reason for his win. The biggest impression on the audience made a dunk over Shaquille O’Neal. Diallo deserved for this statue!

NBA ALL-STAR GAME

The event finished All-Star weekend. In this match, we saw everything: great assists, dunks, layups, 3-point shots in a row, defences… Team LeBron was a favourite in this game and showed advantage 178 – 164. Even though Team Giannis was leading by 20 points. Giannis Antetokounmpo did his best with 38 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists, but that was still not enough. In this match, we saw 167 3-point shot attempts. Kevin Durant from Team LeBron became MVP in with 31 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks and 66,7 field goal percentage. Really impressive.
