Evening, hares! Hope y'all have had pleasant Saturdays and haven't eaten any bugs or children by accident. Tonight is the second and (in my opinion) best day of All-Star weekend. The Knicks, unfortunately, aren't as involved in today's activities as they were supposed to be, but they will make an appearance. There isn't really a set schedule for tonight, but here's the order (and brief description, slightly updated by me) of events, beginning at 8 PM:

Shooting Stars - Teams of NBA, WNBA and retired players in a shooting contest.
Skills Challenge - Guards navigate an 'obstacle course', Stephen Curry won in 2011.
Three-Point Contest - James Jones defends title against Mario Chalmers, Kevin Love, Joe Johnson, Anthony Morrow and Joe Johnson.
Slam Dunk Contest - Chase Budinger, Iman Shumpert Jeremy Evans, Derrick Williams and Paul George participate.

Landry Fields, Allan Houston, and Cappie Pondexter will be doing the Shooting Stars thing, so that's cool. Iman Shumpert, of course, will sit out the Dunk Contest. 'Tis a shame, but Jeremy Evans, his replacement, is pretty awesome. I'm looking forward to that.

That's all! Comment along here if you're watching.
