Although the weekend’s focus should have been the major showdown of the Eastern and Western teams, Michael Jordan, who celebrated his 50th birthday Sunday, was the clear winner this weekend. His name was EVERYWHERE. From his Sports Illustrated cover, comparisons to LeBron and Kobe, parties he hosted and thousands of fans recapping his career with whoever will listen. Who could really focus on the All-Star game? Pro Dunk Hoops experienced first hand the effects of All-Star weekend since our headquarters are here in Houston, TX. Highways were backed up for miles and malls were packed to the ceiling with fans hoping to catch a celebrity or basketball player in passing. There was definitely no shortage of star power here this weekend. Every major basketball player and celebrity came to support the NBA and take advantage of the media coverage last weekend.
