NBA All-Star Weekend has come and gone, and we're all already starting to look forward to the trade deadline that's just a few days away. But first it seems important to take a look back at what we learned from the stellar three days of events.
With the NBA Celebrity Game kicking off the weekend to nobody's excitement, and then the Rising Stars Challenge rising to tremendous heights with Kenneth Faried putting on a show, we were ready for the rest of the weekend's festivities.
All-Star Saturday Night was met with mixed reviews, as the excitement inside the Toyota Center wasn't quite up to par. But looking back, I think we can remember what actually happened as being a lot more exciting than it was on the night that it actually happened.
Of course, the main attraction, Sunday night's All-Star Game, was what we always remembered it was.
There was a lot of excitement, a ton of dunks and, in the end, it was a fun exhibition between the NBA's best.
So, let's take a look at what we saw throughout the weekend and decipher what we can take away from the past three days.
