NBA All Star Weekend News and Notes

Welcome to the Friday edition of Snack Time With Stephen. A look ahead to the NBA All Star weekend is featured today. I’ll give my thoughts on all the events happening this weekend.

Tonight begins the All Star weekend with a celebrity game and the rising stars challenge. Saturday night, you have a night full of events capped off by the appearance of Paul George in the NBA Slam Dunk contest.

I forgot to give out my prediction for that, but I strongly feel this is George’s to win. He already got voted in by the fans as an All Star competitor, so I could see the fans voting him to win the individual winner of tomorrow’s Slam Dunk Contest.

There are some different rules for this challenge tomorrow night, and I’ll explain them in my own words the best I can. I don’t think there for the better, but hey, why not try to mix it up and give this contest some of its luster back?

Also a look over my take on the All Star game and if I care for it. I’d love to hear your own thoughts on All Star Weekend. Will you be watching any of it this weekend? Why do you or don’t you watch it?

All those fun things. Enjoy the weekend!
