NBA All-Star Weekend 2018: Ranking every player in the Rising Stars Challenge

Rex  Shutterstock View View 28

The NBA All-Star festivities kicked off last night (Feb. 16), in Los Angeles with the 2018 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, and Quavo showed off his skills on the court, bringing home the win and the MVP award.

The 67th All-Star Game will be held inside the Staples Center on Sunday, February 18.

Durant, of course, is Curry's teammate on the defending champion Golden State Warriors, who defeated James' Cavaliers four games to one in the 2017 NBA Finals - wherein Durant was named Finals' MVP. He even did a pick and roll on a player.

The game also has plenty of subplots worthy of attention, a few of which revolve around James, aka "The King".

Clearly in any All-Star game, the effort level of players is not going to be at playoff level, but the NBA All-Star game is notorious for lackluster effort and poor quality.

Team World made 23 3-point baskets to 11 for Team USA.

A VPN will enable you to watch the NBA All-Star game from literally anywhere in the world. However, Love, Cousins, Porzingis and Wall will all miss due to injuries. George, Andre Drummond, Goran Dragic and Kemba Walker were added as injury replacements by Commissioner Adam Silver.

Abbas tells Putin he wants US peace role diluted
Washington withheld $65 million-worth of a planned installment of $125 million to the Palestinian refugee agency, UNRWA. Abbas has refused any contact with Trump's administration since Washington's decision at the end of previous year .

Still, I'm pretty sure this is the first time that Bubba Watson's leak out layups had a chance to count as fast break points on an official box score.

There is, however, still plenty of intrigue around the roster construction, especially on Team LeBron, where some former teamates are paired together after acrimonious break-ups. He also had five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block.

On Saturday there will be the Slam Dunk and three point contests while Sunday is the big finale with the actual NBA All Star game.

How does Team Lakers have 30 points and only 10 in the paint?

There's been a lot of speculation about what team LeBron James will end up on by the time next season rolls around, but the decision is an easy one if you ask Shaquille O'Neal.

Quavo didn't get through the game without a couple of bumps, though, and he accidentally knocked Rachel DeMita to the floor with an aggressive block.

Migos fans took to Twitter immediately, posting up some hilarious commentary to celebrate Quavo's basketball accomplishments.
