On Court: NBA All Star Game 2009 - Saturday's Events

The NBA All Star Weekend kicked off last night with the Rookie Challenge and today, the Haier Shooting Stars, Play Station Skills Challenge, Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout, and the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest all took place. The day was quite action packed with the underdog, Daequan Cook, winning the Three Point Contest while Derrick Rose won the Play Station Skills Challenge, and Team Detroit finished first in the Haier Shooting Stars. Sneaker wise, the day was also quite action packed with interesting sneaker choices from athletes including Michael Cooper rocking the Nike Think Pink – Hyperdunk and Dwight Howard rocking a Superman player exclusive colorway of the adidas TS Bounce Commander.

With all things aside, the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest was definitely the best part of the evening. The 5’9 guard from the New York Knicks, Nate Robinson, won the contest with some spectacular jams which included dunking over 6’11 Dwight Howard. One of the most interesting aspects of his routine was the fact that he portrayed himself as “Kryptonate” and even went to the extent of rocking an all green Knicks uniform and a player exclusive Nike Foamposite Lite. You can check out the sneakers that were worn throughout Saturday’s Events after the ‘jump.’ Pictures via Yahoo.

  1. J.R. Smith and Nate Robinson had the most OFFICIAL kiccs on that court… Nate Robinson wit the Kryptonite Foamposite Lite… official… and his proformance only made it that much better…

    J.R. Smith wit the FRESH Tony Parker Zoom Flight Club PE… only one work describes em… BEAUTIFUL… one more time J.R. Smith & Nate Robinson had the hottest kiccs on the court..

  2. its so funny how jr smith and nate rob are good friends in the pics; but they fought each other a few years ago in the nuggets knicks game; where melo knocked this ish outta mardy collins.

  3. damm…them bugger green kicks go hard. But real talk yall cnt tell me Nate dnt look like a mini 50! G-Unit Knicks HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  4. The contest was weak. A few things would have made it better like

    1. Dwight Howard should have windmilled that 11foot dunk! (if a 6ft man can windmill a 10ft then a 7ft man can windmill a 11ft).

    2. and if rudy gay was in it. it would have been better. Jr smith didnt even wanna be in it 2 me and he also lost some hops.

    ANd 3rd 3. Rudy Fernandez!!! what da hell is he doing in this contest!!!1 Get him outta here. Im lookin foward to lebron james doin it next year though. He said last night to count im in next year!!! Whoo! Hoa!!!
