The 2018 NBA All Star Weekend is in Los Angeles from Feb. 16-18, 2018
There is a question bouncing around right now on social media, and we must ask it as well to you. Can the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors starting 5 beat the Eastern Conference All-Stars? I mean you have KD, Steph, Klay, Draymond vs. LeBron, Irving, Anthony, Wade etc. The run and gun offense with Warriors can put up points in a hurry. We know the NBA All-Star Game is nothing more than an exhibition. It is the best exhibition on the planet though. You only get to see all the greatest players in basketball on one court at the same time. That of course is the NBA All-Star Weekend.
For those in the know, the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk contest is, possibly, the best event over the All-Star weekend. Seeing these super athletes push the boundaries of what is humanly possible and attempt never-seen-before dunks is as thrilling as it is mind blowing. The 2017 edition of the Slam Dunk Contest was one of the most highly anticipated in years. While two-time dunk champion Zach LaVine was not a participant this time around, there was plenty of exciting fresh talent.
Congrats Steph Curry becoming the highest played player in NBA history with 5 year - 201 Million Extension. #stephcurry #nba #warriors #nbaallstar #nbaallstarweekend #maxdeal #millions #basketball #wow
The stage is set for the 2018 NBA Dunk contest now for Zach LaVine to come out of retirement and defend his championship. The great thing about Zach LaVine is he will be wearing a bulls jersey. Perhaps he will come out and do a MJ tribute of dunks celebrating 30 year anniversary of when Michael Jordan got perfect scores in the dunk contest in 1988. The time he got the 50 when he jumped from the free throw line to beat the human highlight film Dominque Wilkins.
