It’s that time of year, Golden State Warriors fans. Time for NBA All-Star Weekend! This year, #DubNation will have a reason to watch every single night of the All-Star Weekend.
Both Stephen Curry and Harrison Barnes will represent the Warriors at several events this weekend.
Fans will see a lot of the Warriors’ franchise player, as Curry will be the captain of the Western Conference for all the All-Star festivities.
Starting off with the main event on Friday night, Barnes will appear in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge. Last year, Barnes started for Team Shaq in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge, and he finished with 12 points.
Barnes will play on Team Hill this year. Like many of the All-Star events, the Rising Stars Challenge is mostly for entertainment, so fans expect to see flashy plays, thunderous dunks, and a high-scoring game.
Some of Barnes’ biggest strengths are his athleticism and his explosiveness, so his talents should be well showcased at this event. Hopefully for Warriors fans, the Black Falcon will make a few appearances.
The next big event of NBA All-Star Weekend on the agenda for Warriors’ fans is the Sears Shooting Stars Competition, which is the first event of the State Farm All-Star Saturday Night events.
The Shooting Stars Competition isn’t the most exciting event out of the Saturday night events, but Warriors fans will get a chance to witness a special moment in this competition. Steph Curry will compete on a team that consists of his dad, Dell Curry, and Becky Hammon.
Obviously, Dell and Steph are known as sharpshooters. It will be great for Warriors fans to see these two compete together on the same team. Warriors fans should tune in to see the Currys out-shoot the rest of the competition.
