It's All-Star Saturday Night, when the best, or at least best with respect to relative health, come out to shine under the bright lights and other cliches. The Skills Contest, the 3-Point Shooting Contest, and the Slam Dunk Contest take place Saturday night, and we'll have updates to all the events and highlights here. Consider this your home for All-Star Saturday Night.

Haier Shooting Stars: Let's be honest, this is like the opening band you don't show up for.

Your contestants:

Team Orlando: Jameer Nelson, Marie Ferdinand-Harris, Dennis Scott

Team Atlanta: Jerry Stackhouse, Lindsey Harding, Steve Smith

Team New York: Landry Fields, Cappi Pondexter, Allan Houston 

Team Texas: Chandler Parsons, Sophia Young, Kenny Smith

Winner: TEAM NEW YORK: Allan Houston still has it. The man downed two half-court shots and team New York cleared the final round in 37 seconds. The fact that Kenny Smith and Allan Houston are still better shooters than any of the Milwaukee Bucks is a bit distressing. 

From Royce Young of

A reporter asked Allan Houston if he's in such good shape where he could almost -- "Stop. Stop it right now. This was fun ... It feels good to have a uniform again, but that's about it. That's about the limits if it." Then Landry Fields jumped in saying, "He's not taking that uniform off tonight."

Taco Bell Skills Challenge: Please don't hurt yourselves, you're basically your entire teams

Russell Westbrook

Rajon Rondo

John Wall

Deron Williams

Tony Parker

Winner: Tony Parker: Kyrie Irving was basically terrible. Rajon Rondo outid Russell Westbrook with a great time in a run-off round, then both Rondo and Deron Williams went on a brick fest on the mid-range jumper. Parker breezed to a win. The effort in this wasn't the worst thing you've ever seen, provided you've seen the Washington Wizards play this season. Williams didn't win, but he did have the fastest time on this run:


Foot Locker 3-Point Contest: If James Jones win, we're going to spit

James Jones

Kevin Love

Ryan Anderson

Kevin Durant

Anthony Morrow

Mario Chalmers

Winner: Kevin Love in an upset! Love found himself in a shoot-off with Kevin Durant after tying him in the final round, and then bested the scoring leader 17-14. James Jones made it to the final round and had a pretty low bar of 16 to best, but couldn't get it done, dropping just 12. A dominant rebounding power forward just won the 3-point contest. Boom.

Sprite Slam Dunk Contest: You don't know their names, but maybe that means they can only exceed expectations

Paul George

Derrick Williams

Chase Budinger

Jeremy Evans

Winner: No one. It was very likely the worst dunk contest of all time. Jeremy Evans did win, in a contest that featured him making a straight reverse dunk with a camera attached that no one got, and dunking over Kevin Hart dressed as a mailman while wearing a Karl Malone jerey. The coolest dunk of the night was Paul George in the dark. Goodnight everyone, and may God have Mercy on our souls.

No way should anyone get homecourt advantage in the Finals due to the dunk contest.  That is the worst idea ever... Bud Selig, terrible idea too.!! It's just not fair.  However, the whole east vs. west idea is ok.  I like the mid 90s format: 6 dunkers,  90 seconds to make  3 dunks,  not sure of the scoring exactly.

Love the Three

Love will always have the three in his game. It would be best if he just would just take one when Rubio finds him in transition, but he can hit 'em. His offense still needs alot of work. Posting up, driving, midrange shooting will all get better. He's such a pro. Great time to be a Timberwolf fan.

i hope doesnt think he is a 3 point shooter now. the team needs him to stay close to the basket to get a rebound.

You were clearly picked last in all sports when you were in school. 

Acutually no because I was the one doing the picking.  I'm pretty smart when it comes to recognizeing something that very stupid. (Basket ball)  or in your case > Your comment. look dude how many players can "DUNK" the ball in the NBA. how many can dribble the ball, how many can shoot the ball. Its a lame sport and you know it.. NEXT>

brilliant idea, have a east vs west slamdunk contest. reward team points with three players from each conference. you have an over all individual champion, as well as a team champion. perhaps also rewarding the conference who wins the slam dunk contest, team wise, to get home court advantage in the nba finals. you cant force them to participate, but you offer incentives.
