Last year it was in New Orleans, the first time since Katrina hit, so everyone stepped up their game some. The skills contest featured amazing guards like Chris Paul, Steve Nash, Dwayne Wade and champion Deron Williams. Jason Kapono, last year's champ, put on a clinic shooting 3s, he just destroyed the competition and has one of the best shots in the league. The all-star game was great too, but the highlight was the Slam dunk competition. Dwight Howard was absolutely amazing! Look up his superman dunk, among others. The best dunk contest of this decade, even better than the 2000 competition with Vince Cater.
So now onto the highlights of this year's competition. Kevin Durant dominated the Rookie Sophomore game this year. He also was great in the HORSE tournament. Everything else was down this year. The Slam dunk contest was good, but not great. Howard had some good dunks, but the dunk of the night belonged to Nate Robinson.
And as I finish the score in the 4th quarter is 124-108 West, so all in all it was a good All-star weekend, but not great. Still love it though.
