The NBA Saturday night of All-Star weekend is always an exciting event that includes the 3pt shootout and dunk contest. This is one of the most memorable nights of the weekend where memories are made and placed into the lore of the NBA for a lifetime. I mean who doesn’t remember the great dunk contests of the past? Jason Richardson and Desmond Mason going back and forth, or Vince Carter reminding the world that he was a freak of nature. For your convenience we here at OnSmash decided to live blog the entire night and update with a play by play of the events. So sit back relax and enjoy some rim rattling action!
