NBA All-Star: Everything but the Game

The evening before the actual All-Star game is played is when we enjoy the highest level of basketball-related goofiness: the NBDL All-Star game, HORSE, Shooting Stars, the skills competition, the three-point shootout, and of course the dunk contest.

It is an evening long orgy attended by novelty, awkwardness, and the NBA (and the NBDL, who shows up with a creepy mustache). If you love watching those elements blend together it gets no better.

The events became more exciting for me when I made a simple bet with Rip City Project . We each predicted winners for the events (starting with the Shooting Stars competition), and whoever had the most correct picks would win the night.

If I won, RCP would have to write a post on Bust a Bucket on a topic of my choosing. If I lost, well we never really talked about that. Clearly I was thinking like a champion from the very beginning.


The Rip City Project picks:

Shooting Stars:

Skills: Deron Williams

Three-point: Stephon Curry

Dunk: DeMar Derozan
