Breaking Down the Top Warriors Moments of All-Star Weekend
What was your favorite?
The 65th NBA All-Star Game was the highest scoring game in league history, Klay Thompson matched the best single round score in Three-Point Contest history and there’s a legitimate debate on if the Zach LaVine and Aaron Gordon slam-for-slam showdown marked the best dunk contest in league history. Here are our top Warriors moments from All-Star Weekend in Toronto, in no particular order.
Klay Thompson Wins the Three-Point ContestIn. The. Zone. That was Klay Thompson on All-Star Saturday, who made his last eight shots to take the Three-Point Contest crown away from Stephen Curry.
Steph’s Zach LaVine ImpersonationsWith the dunk contest regaining its glory years, is Stephen Curry thinking about getting in on the action? Judging by these plays from the All-Star Game, the answer is … No. But still, you got to love it when a shooter throws down like this!
Draymond’s StyleDid you see Draymond Green sitting courtside of the All-Star Saturday main events? Of course you did!
Steph Gets in to the Three-Point Contest FinalsHe was the last competitor to take his turn and he needed to beat a first round score of 20 to guarantee a spot in the Three-Point Contest finals. And because Stephen Curry has a flare for the dramatic, he needed to make his last two money balls on the last rack to join his fellow Splash Brother in the finals. Well, Splash and Splash!
Draymond DefendingIt was the last minute of the highest scoring All-Star Game in league history. And there was Draymond Green, playing defense as if it was a regular season game. He defended Paul George as the Pacers forward missed a shot, keeping him one point shy of the individual All-Star Game scoring record.
Steph’s All-Star ReactionsThe Warriors are a fun team to watch, and that includes the players who aren’t in the game at any given moment. Glad to see that Steph brought his bench reaction A-game to Toronto during the dunk contest and in the All-Star Game.
Warriors Love for KobeAll-Star Weekend featured several tributes to Kobe Bryant, who was playing in his 18th and final NBA All-Star Game. For Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, it truly was a special moment to share the court with the Lakers legend in his farewell All-Star Game.
Klay Thompson SelfieGetting trophies for winning a competition is cool, if for no other reason than you get to do this.
Draymond Green vs. Kevin HartActor/comedian Kevin hart has been a staple of All-Star Weekend in recent years, and this year he started a “feud” with our very own Draymond Green. The Dubs’ first time All-Star had the last laugh though, as his trophy was almost as tall as Kevin Hart.
Steph’s Mystery Half-Court SPLASHYou may have missed it – thanks a lot TNT! – but Steph closed out the All-Star Game as only Steph can – by sinking a jumper from half court. #StephGonnaSteph indeed.
#DubNation in the 6ix!It’s not a surprise, but always refreshing. Warriors fans showing their Strength in Numbers, and in the cold of Toronto in February, was a constant throughout All-Star Weekend.
Drake’s Love for the WarriorsDrake was the unofficial resident host of All-Star Weekend in Toronto, and while the Raptors are his team, there’s no denying that he has some Dub Nation in him as well.
Steph’s Pass to WestbrookSometimes it seems that the All-Star Game was created for Stephen Curry. Fortunately for Dub Nation, Stephen Curry makes these kinds of plays on a near regular basis.

Fun with EmojisIt’s 2016, and it’s pretty much impossible to have a successful event without the use of emojis, right?!?!
