Trevor Jackson suits up for Power 106 Celebrity Game

TThe world of basketball and music is seen overlapping all the time – music artist want to be basketball players, while basketball players want to be music artists. There are a few that have been successful at balancing both worlds – Atlantic Records artist Trevor Jackson joined the Power 106 All-Stars basketball game in Huntington Beach. Not only did he play, but at halftime he joined Vine Star, Liane V, for a performance of their song “Keep Playing“. The game went down to the wire – The Power 106 All-Stars hit two big 3-point shots with seconds remaining to almost win the game – but they came up just a little short. Overall it was a great night. Trevor stayed afterwords to sign autographs and take pictures with all the fans! Stay tuned for Trevor’s up coming mixtape, “In My Feelings”.

NBA All Star Weekend: All Star Game

TThe most anticipated part of the entire weekend is of course the All Star game! The event took place at Madison Square Garden in front of a packed arena! The star studded event didn’t just include the stars on the court – the stands were filled with all kinds of familiar faces in the entertainment and sports world. It’s always fun watching the all star game because you can see how some of your favorite players would play on the same team – something we wouldn’t normally get to see throughout the regular season. These matchups and teammates made it a very interesting game to watch. Especially on the west – Stephen Curry and Chris Paul dishing assists – watching Russell Westbrook score everything coming his way as well! The game ended with the West taking the victory, as well as Russell winning MVP with 41 points! The second highest scorer ever in an All Star game (Off by 1 point for the most number!) It was a fun event to get to see live, make sure to check out the highlights on nba.com

NBA All Star Weekend: All Star Saturday

SSaturday Night is one of the most anticipated night of All Star Weekend because it includes so many different kinds of challenges with all kinds of stars! The events took place at Barclays center in Brooklyn. It started off with everyone in the building having a necklace around their chair that not only would light up – it also was remote controlled to sync with the music and any other activities going on! (Similar to what we saw at the Jordan Hangar last month!)

The night started with the Degree Shooting Stars which was won by Team Bosh. Next was a new twist on the Taco Bell Skills Challenge (which I thought was much more exciting to watch!) which was won by Patrick Beverly. The 3-point contest was super exciting and star studded! The top 3 players to move on to the final round were Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry. The battle of the Splash Brothers as well as defending 3point champion Kyrie – it was really up in the air of who would take home the trophy. Stephen Curry had an exciting run and hit 13 shots in a row!! He ended up winning the contest with 27 points in the final round. To finish the night off was the dunk contest. Zack LaVine came out with some really exciting dunks (including his “Space Jam” dunk) to take home the trophy. Check out the highlights of the night on nba.com if you missed it!

NBA All Star Weekend: Open Practice

OOne of the open events that fans can come check out is the open practice between the West and the East. Because New York has two major NBA teams – one in Manhattan and the other in Brooklyn, the events were split into the two venues. The open practice was held at Madison Square Garden. The fans had a chance to see all of their favorite players before the big game on Sunday. Check out some of the pictures!
