He did what?! The best players of the NBA get to show off their skills before the All Star Game in the State Farm All-Star Saturday Night event that’ll be full of neat tricks. You won’t want to miss some of the outrageous plays, so click here for the live stream!
The leading stars of the NBA gather together on Feb. 13 to fool around and show off their best trick shots at the State Farm All-Saturday Night event, and we don’t want you to miss a single minute. The action starts at 8 p.m. EST, and we’ve got you covered with the live stream!
There are, of course, three difference categories for our superstar athletes to compete in. The first event is the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, in which players get to demonstrate their passing ability, shooting prowess and dribbling technique.
This year’s participants are defending champ Patrick Beverley of the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings star DeMarcus Cousins, Draymond Green who plays with Golden State Warriors, Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers’ shooting guard CJ McCollum, Karl Anthony-Towns from the Minnesota Timberwolves, the enigmatic Isaiah Thomas from the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers star Jordan Clarkson.
The second event of the night, the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest, was won last year by Stephen Curry, so he will be hot favorite to retain his crown. But he’s up against stiff opposition in the form of James Harden of the Houston Rockets, his Warriors teammate Klay Thompson, Milwaukee Bucks’ Khris Middleton, local favorite Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors, Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker, JJ Redick of a LA Clippers fame and finally CJ McCollum, in his second event, as a replacement for the injured Chris Bosh.
The final event of the evening, and normally the most exciting, is the Verizon Slam Dunk Contest. There are four participants, including last year’s winner Zach LaVine of the Minnesota Timberwolves. He will be looking to beat Aaron Gordon (Orlando Magic), Will Barton (Denver Nuggets), Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons).
The State Farm All-Star Saturday Night extravaganza never fails to disappoint, and we can’t wait to see what these pro-athletes have in store for us.
Either way, it’s a fun occasion that brings together the leading lights of the NBA — who will no doubt enjoy letting their hair down when the pressure’s off just to show off to their fans.
