NBA All-Star Weekend 2021 Recap

The 2021 NBA All-Star Game took place this past Sunday, March 7th. The teams were split up by two team captains, LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Some of the All-Stars we got to see in action were Damian Lillard, Bradley Beal, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Steph Curry, Donovan Mitchell, Chris Paul, and more.

Before the game, we got to see two-time All-Star Domantas Sabonis of the Indiana Pacers take home the Skills Challenge crown.

Fans were also able to see Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors win the three-point contest for the second time since 2015, joining Larry Bird (3), Craig Hodges (3), Jeff Hornacek (2), Jason Kapono (2), Mark Price (2) and Peja Stojaković (2) as multiple-time three-point contest winners.

There were many players that had to be replaced throughout the weekend due to injuries or COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

Here are some of the best tweets from the All-Star Game and Slam Dunk Contest that took place during half-time:

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that everyone who participated in the All-Star Game tested negative for COVID-19 following the event, which is hopefully a sign that the event was a success, despite early concerns.

Next year’s All-Star Weekend will take place in Cleveland, Ohio and preparations have already begun.
