NBA All-Star Weekend: All-Time Greatest Performances

Media, former players and A-list celebrities of all kinds will descend on New Orleans to witness the best talent the NBA has to offer compete in the 2014 All-Star Game. It will be the 63rd All-Star Game in the league’s history, and in the years since the first contest was held in the iconic Boston Garden in 1951, the event has grown from a single-day experience into a three-day extravaganza known as NBA All-Star Weekend.

All-Star Weekend has given rise to competitions such as the Slam Dunk Contest, the Three-Point Shootout and the Rising Stars game. Over the years, there have been more than a few incredible performances from in these competitions, courtesy of some of the greatest players to ever set foot on the hardwood.

What follows is a list of the greatest of these performances from the competitions during All-Star Weekend (including the All-Star Game itself, of course), based on a combination of performance and memorability. If you think I missed one, let me know in the comments section. Let’s go!
