Team USA 2015: Scrimmage

TThe Team USA Mini-Camp concluded with a Blue vs White scrimmage at the Thomas and Mack center at UNLV. A big concern in the back of everyone’s mind that watched last year was making sure there were no injuries.

The scrimmage included some players who weren’t apart of the two practice days – including Elfrid Payton, Arron Afflalo, and Amir Johnson. The first half was pretty light – the guys were putting on a show, but being careful. The second half turned into some big game highlights – with humungous dunks from Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond, DeMar DeRozan and Victor Oladipo. Blake and Andre had some monster dunks, while DeMar DeRozan did a 360 dunk. Arguably the biggest dunk of the game was Victor Oladipo dunking over Michael Carter-Williams and doing a dance after!

It was a fun game full of energy and smiles. The White team ended up winning 134-128. I had a great time being apart of Team USA for another year! Looking forward to next year! Check out the photos below

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: 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!
