With all the hoopla currently going down in L.A. for the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend, those in attendance and the many tuned in at home get the chance to see some of the game’s brightest stars battle it out in a series of fan-favorite challenges. The brief three-day event, however, also serves to commemorate some of the very best from seasons past.
