Sunday night’s NBA All-Star Game was truly one for the history books!
Team LeBron came back late to beat Team Giannis 157-155 on the court in what turned out to be a thrilling game, even by the league’s sky-high All-Star standards! But the real story here — and almost all the memorable moments from the entire weekend — primarily centered itself on the impressive memorials and moments dedicated to Kobe Bryant.
Everybody on LeBron James‘ team wore the number 2 (in honor of Gianna Bryant), while everybody on the opposing side rocked the familiar 24 for Kobe. And there was plenty of star power available yesterday evening for the big game, too!
Considering the whole thing was held in Chicago, native celebs from Common and Dwyane Wade to Michael Jordan, Chance the Rapper, Jennifer Hudson, and even Barack Obama himself made appearances at various points. So ICYMI, here are all the most important and memorable moments from last night’s incredible All-Star affair!
BTW, “Uncle Shaq” had another great moment at All-Star Weekend, too.
During the Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday night, while live on air with the TNT crew, the former basketball superstar pulled a random baby out of the crowd and tried to interview him on national television:
What’d U think of everything here, Perezcious readers?! The NBA knows how to put on a show, don’t they?!
They seriously didn’t disappoint on Sunday — hitting all the right notes with Kobe’s legacy while also showing off a VERY fun game.
