NBA All-Star Friday

Grace Higgins | February 15th, 2020

In what would start the always entertaining NBA All-Star Weekend, the Celebrity Game featured coaching from Stephen A. Smith and Mike Wilbon, while the Rising Stars Game featured NBA All-Star Game starters Trae Young and Luka Doncic.

Without Kevin Hart in the Celebrity Game, there’s a lack of comedy and total entertainment, as none of the other celebrities have the façade that Hart possesses. But Quavo, respectively, is always playing serious and hard, which is nice for fans of the sport. It’s always a shame to watch laziness. It’s also annoying to watch the former players in the Celebrity Game, because at any point they can torch everyone, but decide not to in order for entertainment purposes.

But after Team Wilbon won, the real talent took the court, with Team USA and Team World competing against one another.

Although Zion Williamson didn’t win MVP for the game, he did have three thunderous dunk attempts in the final minutes that would’ve brought the house down. The dunks missed, but Williamson has a star quality about him that makes you want to watch everything he does. He did have a dunk before halftime that bent the rim.

R.J. Barrett led all scorers with 27 points, with Brandon Clarke, Eric Paschall and Collin Sexton scoring at least 20 points. It was Miles Bridges who won game MVP, with 20 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals. His third quarter performance shifted the momentum, as Team World was leading by as many as 13 points in the second half.

Both Young and Doncic were able to have fun with the game, as they both start in the All-Star Game on Sunday night. There were plenty of moments between the two, including one when Doncic beat the buzzer to make a bank-shot and the two embraced each other laughing. It was one of the more pure moments of the night.
