Spectacular All Star Saturday
Last night had to go down as one of the more exciting NBA All Star Saturdays in recent memory. Team Atlanta started things off by edging out Team Texas in the Shooting Stars competition. Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry took home the Skills Challenge over Oklahoma City‘s Russell Westbrook, Chicago‘s Derrick Rose and defending champion Chris Paul. Click the image to enlarge.
Miami Heat sharpshooter James Jones edged out the Boston Celtic duo of Paul Pierce and Ray Allen to win the 3 Point Shootout. And, in one of the more exciting and controversial Slam Dunk contests, Blake Griffin defeated Washington Wizard Javale McGee. Griffin sealed his win by dunking over a car in a final dunk that also included a gospel choir. The Blake Watch continues this evening in the NBA All Star Game, which concludes NBA All Star Weekend.
