Team LeBron took on Team Giannis in the 2023 All-Star game.

The NBA’s All Star weekend was this past weekend and people had mixed emotions about it. Denver Nuggets coach Michael Malone stated that the All-Star game is, “the worst basketball game ever played.”

Another player, Jalen Brown says, “It’s a glorified layup line.” Some players hated it, some players liked the All-Star game.

Team LeBron took on Team Giannis in this year’s All-Star game.

Team Giannis took down Team LeBron with a score of 184-175. Jayson Tatum, of the Boston Celtics, had a game high 55 points breaking the scoring record for the All-Star game. LeBron left the game with injury after getting his finger stuck in the rim.

Giannis started the game, recorded a stat and left the game due to an ongoing injury he’s had this season. Some NBA All-Star snubs were James Harden, De’Aaron Fox and more. Some more All-Star fun was the Dunk Contest with the winner being Mac McClung. He was the first 76er to win the contest.

McClung had just signed a shoe deal with Puma days before and earned over one hundred thousand dollars for winning the dunk contest.
