King James drops 61 Pts on the Bobcats, a personal Career-High, Miami Heat Record, and one point shy of the high-mark set at 62 by Carmelo (again, on the Bobcats) …it’s safe to say, the MVP Race with Kevin Durant is back to being WIDE OPEN.
The Most Impressive Thing about Lebron’s Career Scoring Night… he did it WITHOUT DUNKING. Scary.
Saturday Night was pretty special in Philadelphia as one of basketball’s pound-for-pound greatest players ever, Allen Iverson, saw his No.3 jersey retired to the 76ERS Rafters.

Big Salute to Chuck! #LegendsOnly
To pay tribute to him, HoopMixtape put together all of the must see AI videos on the web into their “Ultimate Allen Iverson Tribute” Post, for you to enjoy in your own time! Check it out HERE.

After a pretty entertaining weekend of festivities in New Orleans, this was the main event everybody was waiting for, the greatest exhibition game on Earth, the NBA All-Star Game… and fans definitely weren’t disappointed. In the highest scoring All-Star Game in history, the Eastern Conference finally took back the All-Star Crown from the West after a 4-year hiatus, with a blazing comeback in the 2nd Half led by young, Kyrie Irving. We got to see the KD vs Lebron matchup people had been looking forward to and Blake Griffin & Chris Paul put on one heck of an Aerial show in the Big Easy. All in all… great game, and you can check out the highlights above.
This years NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans was jammed packed with events & competition for charity. The Rising Stars Rookie/Sophomore game didn’t disappoint with a shootout from start to finish and dominating performance by the young Center, Andre Drummond, who won the MVP. Saturday was a pretty fun night as well, seeing the East vs West collide for the 1st time as Teams in skills, shooting, dunk competitions. Damian Lillard, who will become the first player to be involved in ALL 5 All-Star Events this weekend, has went 2 for 4 so far, winning in the Rising Stars Game & Skills competition, while being on the losing end of the 3-Point & Dunk Contests. Although, the Dunk Contest ended a bit prematurely due to the new contest rules/format… there were still a few gems, especially when John Wall delivered on a Alley-Oop Pump Reverse over his Washington Wizards mascot!
