Hoopshysteria: Previewing All-Star Weekend
By Wild on Sports Basketball Analyst Talyon Perry

We finally made it to the All-Star break. For many teams its much needed but for Lebron James and the Miami Heat the break could have waited a few more weeks. Lebron has played better than anyone in these last half-dozen games, including Michael Jordan, getting 30+ points and shooting 60+ percent from the field. His great play has also helped teammates Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh by getting them more open shots. If they keep playing like this, there is no one that can stop them from repeating. On the other side of the country, the LA Clippers finally have both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin back from injury which helped them to beat their inner-city rivals the Lakers.

Now lets preview the big events of All-Star weekend:
3pt Contest: There are three possible winners Steve Novak, Stephen Curry, and Ryan Anderson. Novak is one of the best 3pt shooters in the league and will have no other competitions to distract him. Curry is arguably one of the top shooters in the league and is looking for redemption after being snubbed from the All-Star game. Anderson has a huge advantage in being a big man because he will not have to jump as much, remember last years winner was forward Kevin Love.

Dunk Contest: There are lots of great Dunkers in this but it's between Bledsoe and Evans. Bledsoe has a great jump and can learn from former champion Blake Griffin. You have to give the edge to last years champ Jeremy Evans, he did it last year and can do it again.

Rising Star Game: Shaq vs Chuck. This will be a typical Outside (team Shaq) vs inside (team Chuck). I have to give this game to Team Shaq as Lillard and Irving will shoot the lights out, don't be surprised if it happens after the Super Bowl.

Main Event - All-Star game: These teams are both amazing and consist of superstars but with the Heat's big 3 will carry the East to victory.
