A huge draw of the All-Star Weekend is the Saturday Night shindig of the Dunk Contest, Three-Point Shootout, Skills Challenge, and more. This year, the NBA put a spin on the competition by introducing the first-ever East vs. West arrangement in which each event on Saturday night resulted in a bulk of points that would give the winning conference a whopping $500,000 in donations to a charity of their choice. Some of the major highlights of the night included Dominique Wilkins hitting two half-court shots, Gerald Green cutting down the nets, Kyrie Irving going for 23 points in the final round of the shoot-out, and rookie Damian Lillard taking home the Skills Challenge crown. The night’s marquee event featured a number of rising stars and internet dunk celebrities as James ‘Flight’ White opened up the Dunk Contest with an entertaining arrangement of flight attendants, but it was Terrence Ross of the Toronto Raptors, who spent the night in the Nike Barkley Posite Max ‘Area 72’, who took home the night’s best prize. All of Saturday night’s All-Star Events are below so check it out!
