Recapping NBA All-Star Weekend

The NBA's All-Star weekend in Toronto was nothing short of spectacular. We saw a big man win the skills competition (Karl Anthony-Towns), a battle of the Splash Brothers in the 3-point contest (Klay Thompson won), and a dunk contest final that was... wow (Zach Lavine with his second-straight crown). With the West team capping off the weekend with a historic 196-173 win over the East, we thought it would be appropriate to take a look back at social media's take on the weekend.

Skills Challenge
Towns edged out Isaiah Thomas in the final, saying "This is bigger than me. "This is for all the bigs out there, with the game changing the way it is, to show that bigs can stand up with guards skill-wise."


3-Point Contest
Who'd have it any other way than Splash Bro 1 and MVP Stephen Curry going up against Splash Bro 2 Klay Thompson?? Thompson got the better of Curry this time, draining his entire final rack for the win.


Dunk Content
Oh c'mon now. Lavine outlasted Aaron Gordon somehow, but the two just flat put on a show. Gordon probably (not probably, did) had the dunk of the night with this:


Aaron Gordon didn't win the Slam Dunk contest, but this dunk was just insane. #aarongordon #dunk #slamdunk #slamdunkcontest #dunkcontest #nba #sports #magic #instasports
