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!

NBA needs to change formatting of dunk championship and 3 pt. Actually all of AllStar Saturday needs revamping.
Shoot from a few spots on floor ... Its always halfcourt that wins it ( so dumb)
Dribble around cones. Shoot a 3. Pass a ball through hoops. Dribble again (boring)
3 pt shooting comp is good BUT a warm shooter shooting first is unfair in the Finals. Seen this wayyyy too many times now.
Dunk contest ... Where do I start. Been boring since '06. Needs big names and more props. It's entertainment! The Kia jumping over a 'hood' of a car is nothing. One of the most underrated dunks I've ever seen. But seriously, dunkers need dunks to be completed within 2 tries. There should be more dunks like back in the old days. I would love to see the players who didn't make the Finals to see what they got. And why have a Finals anyway. Add up 4 dunks from 6 players. Not that hard, ppl.
shout out to best dunk to The Manimal who had best dunk and more heat in store we didn't get to see
