Kevin Hart sat courtside with fiance Eniko before ripping off his clothes and joining the 3-Point Shootout challenge himself.  Ha!

Kev challenged Warriors baller Draymond Green to a three-point competition after talking ish on Twitter. He surprisingly tied him. Kinda.  Here's the hilarity that went down:

As for the actual 3-Point challenge:

Steph Curry ended up battling his teammate Klay Thompson in the final round...and lost.  Look at little Kiyan and daddy Carmelo looking on.  Cute.

The reigning 3-Point champ still cheered on his teammate though:

Kiyan Anthony got to put his skills on display in the Kids' Slam Dunk Contest.  And he had Odell Beckham Jr. there to assist.

Check out Chris Paul Jr. and more YBF Kids getting their dunks on below:

The pros KILLED it in what is probably the best Slam Dunk contest in NBA All Star history.  Aaron Gordon and Zach LaVine went back and forth with perfect scores and even ran out of dunks to do.

Their fellow ballers' reactions:

But Zach was victorious.

Our fave dunk is Aaron Gordon's at the 1:35 mark.  Check it below:

Blac Chyna was spotted in the freezing cold leaving Bloke Club in Toronto after hosting an All Star party last night.

There was an Extreme Cold Alert issued for Toronto as the temperature dropped below zero, but it didn't stop Blac Chyna from showing some major skin. Anything for that walk thru cash...

And earlier in the day yesterday, Steph Curry joined forces with WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne at the NBA Cares Special Olympics Unified Game in Toronto. Sweet!

Speaking of the WNBA:


Congrats to new President Lisa Borders!


BONUS: He may have lost the Slam Dunk contest, but Aaron Gordon's got another skill in his back pocket:
