On Court: NBA All Star Game 2009 – Saturday’s Events

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.
