Steph Curry & John Wall To Battle In All-Star “Game Changer” Contest

Stephen Curry, John Wall

A slick PR strategy from the people at DEGREE MEN played out on Twitter yesterday and set the stage for a “Game Changer” contest between the opposing starting point guards in the 2015 NBA All-Star Game. Stephen Curry and John Wall exchanged tepid taunts on Twitter as Wall challenged Steph on the court, which is set to go down at MSG on the Saturday before the All-Star Game. Read More »

The Hawks May Get Four All-Star Reserves, But We Doubt It Will Happen

Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, Al Horford

We already know who is starting the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, and noon today was the deadline for the coach’s picks sliding in seven more players per conference with two more guards, three more frontcourt players and two wildcards. With the East’s best team, the Hawks, whiffing on a starting nod (Jeff Teague finished eighth in the backcourt fan voting, and Paul Millsap was 10th in the East’s frontcourt), some are predicting four Hawks fill out the seven reserve spots in the East. We really hope this happens and they all get to share the court for a stretch, but we doubt it’ll happen. Read More »

Kyle Lowry, Dwyane Wade

The 2015 All-Star starters have finally been announced, and there hasn’t been much of a change since the early January returns. Except, Stephen Curry has overtaken LeBron James as the leading vote getter overall, and Kyle Lowry has leapfrogged Dwyane Wade to be named an Eastern Conference starter in the backcourt with John Wall. All the 2015 NBA All-Star starters and final voting results after the jump. Read More »

Stephen Curry Will Compete In The All-Star 3-Point Shootout Until He Wins

Stephen Curry

Last February during 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend at Smoothie King Arena in New Orleans, Stephen Curry participated in his third 3-Point Shootout with similar results: he was eliminated in the first round. After three tries —including a runner-up finish to Paul Pierce in 2010 — Steph says he’s “salty” about losing and will continue to participate until he wins. Read More »

Dirk Nowitzki & Rajon Rondo Say DeMarcus Cousins Deserves An All-Star Nod

DeMarcus Cousins

After DeMarcus Cousins dropped a near triple-double on them last night in Sacramento — and may have won it for the Kings if not for amateur thespian, Tyson Chandler, the Mavs breathed a sigh of relief. They also made it clear they appreciated how good Boogie has become, and — despite how deep the field is this year — both Rajon Rondo and Dirk Nowitzki say he deserves to be elected to his very first All-Star game.

Stephen Curry And LeBron Lead Second Ballot Of 2015 NBA All-Star Game

Stephen Curry

The 64th NBA All-Star Game tips off on Feb. 15, so the second balloting returns were revealed during the New Year. No changes at the top with Stephen Curry leading the Western Conference voting and LeBron James leading the East, but Curry has gotten close to James in the overall lead, Pau Gasol passed Carmelo Anthony in the East, and Kobe Bryant continues to see strong returns for a chance at a backcourt slot alongside Curry in the West.

The NBA And adidas Unveil 2015 All-Star Game Uniforms Commemorating NYC

adidas NBA All-Star Collection Lay Down East

The NBA and adidas got it right this year with All-Star game uniforms that didn’t try and overdo it with bold colors and outrageous designs. Contrasting with prior years, the uniforms revealed on Monday offer a simplistic look that harkens back to the game’s infancy, and the barnstorming teams early in the 20th century who used to wow crowds taking in the new sport.

We Got Next: Portland Trail Blazers Submit Bid to Host Future All-Star Game

LaMarcus Aldridge

The Portland Trail Blazers have never hosted All-Star Weekend. In fact, they’re one of only a handful of current NBA cities yet to host the annual event. That’s a shame because, as any frothy-mouthed local will tell you, Rip City offers so many unique experiences that they’re almost impossible to catalogue.

Undaunted by that near-Himalayan task, that’s precisely what we’ll aim to accomplish here. Read More »
