The NBA All-Star Weekend came and went this past week, and as usual the on-the-court activities took a backseat to off-the-court happenings.
One of the bigger stories of Sunday was the NBA honoring its 75 greatest players of all time. Michael Jordan wasn’t expected to attend the event because he had a prior NASCAR engagement, but ultimately ended up making the trip anyway.
Everyone was happy to see him, for obvious reasons, and it led to a lot of great photos.
Including one involving Jordan, R&B legend Mary J. Blige and Vanessa Bryant. The picture in question largely speaks for itself, as does Jordan’s hand placement:

All things considered, it was a pretty crazy weekend for all parties involved.
Fans couldn’t help but notice something odd about Vanessa Bryant, which in turn sent off a social media firestorm. Kevin Durant got brutally honest about the dunk contest. And of course, Jarrett Allen’s provocative outfit set the entire NBA community ablaze.

All things considered, it was a pretty fantastic weekend for hoops news making. While the All-Star Game itself leaves a lot to be desired, all the hoopla surrounding it is lots of fun.
