NBA Players React to All-Star Saturday Night

A tweetcap.

Last night, social media played a part in NBA All-Star Saturday night unlike ever before, with the voting for the Slam Dunk Contest actually taking place on Twitter. And so it makes sense that just about everyone watching the events was speaking their mind on the tweets—insert Tweets is Watching pun here!—including, naturally, a handful of NBA players, who were commenting and debating their opinions all night. Roll through the gallery above to see how they reacted to some of the night’s biggest moments, including the tight three-point competition and the semi-controversial Slam Dunk Contest champion.

    all I want to say about last night’s dunk contest is this: thank the basketball gods for Charles Barkley.

  • Justin G.

    I also love how JaVal McGee of all people is criticizing those that used props. Uhhh…hypocrite much? And it’s time to go back to how it was in the 80′s. More competitors, bring back the judges, and if you miss your dunk you get one replacement. The props and gimmicks are getting way out of hand now

    Time to go back to the 80s? No, it’s time to bury the three point competition. It’s not fun anymore.

    wtf javale mcgee?!?!?!? he should have all his privledges in basketball revoked after the foolishness he’s pullin this season. for the record, demar derozan had a better showing than this dude, and it didn’t take demar 40 tries.

  • Big AL

    Wooow Hassan Whiteside is critical as hell for somebody that Ive never, ever seen get in the game.lol

  • robb

    Whiteside is right though. Fans shouldn’t vote and props are lame. I wanna see athletic ability not circus acts. Bring on Derozan, Lebron, Iguodala and Griffin. No props!!!

  • T-Money

    Why do these male athletes own bras and then name them after their peers? Strange league.
