It was All Star Weekend. The weekend where NBA Players show off their talents, by playing the three point contest, dunk contest, All Star game and last of all, the Skills Challenge. These all took place in the Oracle Area in Oakland, California. The Skills Challenge featured some of the top NBA players, who are Isaiah Thomas, Kevin Durant , Russell Westbrook, and John Wall.
While the players were getting ready to warm up, it was time to announce the match ups. Starting with the first round is going to be Isaiah Thomas going up against Kevin Durant. 2nd round was confirmed that the match up was going to be John Wall vs Russell Westbrook .
The hot, burning flames erupted. Isaiah Thomas and Kevin Durant were ready to start. The crowd was chanting for Isaiah, but round after round Kevin beat Isaiah. In the other game, Russel Westbrook's prediction was to beat out John Wall to make it into the championship round. The crowd hadn't been like that since Tom Cruise his teeth straight.
Russell was scared for the next game, but he was ready to play. Finally, they get into the game. Russell dunks the ball into the basket last second to win the game! Kevin shakes his head. He is not happy. "Ha!" Russell teased, "jokes on you!" The crowd was as wild as a gladiator fight.
After, was the final skills challenge championship. The fans were thrilled. The loud horn buzzer blew and they start the game. Kevin was too confident. While Kevin was going too fast, Russel was taking his time. Kevin then trips and falls. Russell catches up and makes the three to win the game!
Later, Kevin throws the ball in the air. He was outraged. Russell holds up the trophy, sticking his toungue out at Kevin Durant. I learned from this story that slow and steady wins the race.
