Society Pick 'Em: NBA All-Star Weekend Edition


Society Pick ‘Em: NBA All-Star Weekend Edition

In this pick ’em we predicted the winners for every NBA All-Star event this weekend.

Friday night we have the Rising Stars Game which has a new format, keeping the rookies and sophomores but dividing them by U.S. born players vs. players born around the world.

On Saturday, in the Barclays Center there will be the Degree Shooting Stars, Taco Bell Skills Challenge, Foot Locker Three Point Contest and the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.

On Sunday, the All-Star Game will take place in Madison Square Garden. It should be a fun weekend to watch. The writers that took part in this weekend’s picks were:
