Here is a highlight reel I made of all the best plays from NBA All-Star Weekend 2012.
It includes highlights from every official NBA All-Star Weekend event: the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, Haier Shooting Stars, Taco Bell Skills Challenge, Foot Locker 3 Point Contest, Sprite Slam Dunk contest, and the 2012 NBA All-Star game.
Some of the best highlight from the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge I've included are:
Blake Griffin's alley oop dunk off the backboard from himself, John Wall's crazy block on Norris Cole, Wall's one-handed alley oop dunk from Marshon Brooks, and his crazy behind-the-back dunk at the end of the game.
There are also plenty of other fast break dunks and alley oops by Markieff Morris, Paul George, Blake Griffin, DeMarcus Cousins, and Derrick Williams. There are a handful of crafty fakes and moves by Ricky Rubio, several three pointers by the game's MVP, Kyrie Irving, plus extra footage of Jeremy Lin and Blake Griffin fooling around on the bench.
From All-Star Saturday night, I've included the Haier Shooting Stars performance of the winning team - Team New York, which comprised New York Knick Landry Fields, former Knick legend Allan Houston, and Cappie Pondexter of the WNBA's New York Liberty.
From the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, I've included a few highlights of winner Tony Parker.
From the Foot Locker Three Point Contest, I included performances of both Kevin Durant and Kevin Love. The two needed a tie-breaking round to decide this year's three point champion, and Love came out on top.
Also from All-Star Saturday night, I included every dunk from the Sprite Slam Dunk contest. Here is a list of the players and their dunks.
1) White Men Can't Jump dunk over P. Diddy
2) regular windmill
3) blindfolded reverse tribute to Cedric Ceballos dunk
1) windmill dunk over motorcycle
2) 360 alley oop dunk off the side of the backboard from Ricky Rubio
3) regular alley oop dunk off the backboard from himself

3) tribute to Karl Malone dunk over Kevin Hart
The highlights from the All-Star game are full of impressive passes, ferocious dunks, and emphatic alley oops. Some of the best plays from this portion of the video are:
sick windmill dunks by LeBron James and Andre Iguodala, Kevin Durant's alley oop dunk off the backboard from Chris Paul, Paul's drop off in between the legs pass followed by a crazy dunk by Blake Griffin, and LeBron's reverse dunk from Rajon Rondo.
Other players displayed are Dwyane Wade, Steve Nash, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, and Kobe Bryant, who passed by Michael Jordan as the all-time leading scorer in NBA All-Star history.
