Damian Lillard

The 63rd NBA All-Star Weekend will take place in New Orleans, bringing some of the biggest stars in sports and entertainment together. It is a time for players to have some down time and fun from their grueling schedules while fans get the opportunity to watch some of their favorite players on the same court.

What sets the NBA apart from other major sports that have All-Star events is that there is constant entertainment and events provided. The weekend ignites with a glimpse of the future stars of the league in the Rising Stars Challenge Friday night. All-Star Saturday night is perhaps the most entertaining venue throughout the whole weekend. The Shooting Stars Competition, Skills Challenge, Three-Point Shootout and the Slam Dunk Contest are all events that make up the night. All the parties, festivities and concerts Saturday night lead up to the game on Sunday. Read More »

Kevin Durant

At the end of each season, the NBA honors the best players by naming them to the All-NBA Teams. There are three teams: First Team, Second Team and Third Team. Each generally consists of five players: two guards, two forwards and one center, voted on by a group of sportswriters and broadcasters. Read More »

Anthony Davis

The New Orleans Pelicans were in Toronto on Monday night, less than a week before hosting the 2014 All-Star Game, and things didn’t go so well away from home. The Pellies lost 109-101 on the road to a motivated Raptors team that’s currently in the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference.

Video: Anthony Davis Stuffs D-Will After Crossover

Anthony Davis, Kevin Garnett

The length of Anthony Davis is overwhelming when you think about how easily and naturally he moves around the court. Guys that are 6-10 with a 7-5.5 wingspan aren’t supposed to be able to stay with point guards. Especially not point guards that used to be all-stars, like Deron Williams. On Sunday, D-Will found himself facing Ant and used his quickness to cross him up. But the Brow recovered in time to block the shot and immediately leak out for what turned into a breezy dunk on the other end. Read More »

For only a half season’s worth of basketball, the NBA’s top athletes have put together a strong resume and large volume of impressive slams, so much so that we had to list 100 of them. There weren’t any that had to be forced on, either, to complete the list. No, there were plenty of worthy candidates to make this list go beyond the threshold of 100. Read More »
