NBA All-Star weekend has concluded and I'll run through each of the events that made up the weekend. Team World defeated Team USA, 121-112. Patrick Beverley, of the Houston Rockets, took down Brandon Knight in the Skills Challenge. In the 3-point contest, to not many people's surprise, Stephen Curry shot his heart out and beat the competition. In the dunk contest, Zach LaVine beat Victor Oladipo in the finals. To wrap up the weekend, the Western Conference beat the Eastern Conference, 163-158.
I'll go through many of the weekend's performers and what their futures will look like for not only the rest of the 2014-15 NBA season, but for their respective careers.

Who is the true King James? Are you serious? C'mon people....our podcast only deals with the knowledgeable fan, not morons! Nevertheless, the question has been put out there for all media hungry zealots. Has Harden surpassed Lebron as the best player in the NBA? Join Kevin and Ed as we discuss the validity of this question.
Despite all of the talent in the world, we seem to care about the numbers behind sports more than the players that create them. In tonights show, we will address the following:
How does non-guaranteed contracts affect professional football players? Should the NFL consider reconstructing their contracts?
As a fan, why do you think we focus more on how much an athlete earns?
What do you think the front offices of professional sports consider when putting a contract together?
Do you think that most athletes put in more effort the last year of their contract, versus making an effort the first couple of years?
How important is analytics in professional sports?
Is analytics another way of depending on technology?
