NBA All Star Game Celebrates ‘Excellence’

It was just moments before the 2021 NBA All Star game when actor and recording artist Common appeared on the television screen and said, “Tonight is special. Because, tonight, we celebrate Excellence.” And you know anytime Excellence gets a shout out like that, we’ll be watching. –By Brian Hurlburt, Founder and Host, Magnifying Excellence Podcast.

Then the 24 best basketball players in the world put on a show, with Steph Curry and Damian Lillard dialing up 3 pointers from half court and environs near it throughout the night. And Giannas Antetokounmpo earned the MVP award by making each of the 16 shots he took. Team Lebron James won the game and helped raise $3 million for Historically Black Colleges and Universities. He finished with 35 points while Curry had 28 and Lillard 32.

It was quite the show  of dunks, three pointers and passing throughout the evening.
