Although through this treacherous pandemic has put a halt on so many things, the NBA fights through and keeps going. On March 7, 2021, the NBA hosted another All-Star Weekend in Atlanta, GA, but this year the events took place in one day. Sadly, there were no fans, however the night was still action packed, and the NBA All Stars were able to keep the game as electric and fun as it was previous years.
Giannis Antetokounmpo from the Milwaukee Bucks was named All Star MVP, as his stats show complete dominance with 35 points, 7 rebounds, and a perfect 16-16 from the field. While Team Lebron took the win of 170-150, there was so much to be noted in the game. Anteokounmpo’s performance was amazing, but his teammates Stephen Curry and Damien Lilard completely stole the show.
Curry and Lillard were launching half-court shot after half-court shot. Curry hit look-away threes, and Lillard hit shots from midcourt, which displayed how far their range goes. Such impressiveness sparks the question, "who's the better shooter?" Although both players have shown their talent from three-point range, in the playoffs, Curry dominated Lillard with a 10-0 record. Curry also holds multiple records for threes made, and three made in a season. Stats and accomplishments show that Curry is on another level.
