One of my favorite memories as a child was watching the NBA All-Star Weekend with my
grandfather and my brother. Spud Webb’s Slam Dunk victory over Wilkins making him the shortest player ever to win the contest, Michael Jordan’s perfect 50 dunk from the free-throw line, and Isiah Thomas’s 30 point game will forever be etched in my brain as inspirational and unforgettable memories in my life. It’s moments like these that remind you that greatest is possible. I still remember saying, “Imagine actually getting to see this in person”, as my brother and I watched in awe. We all know that I’m not one to stop at “imagine” and next weekend one of my childhood dreams might actually come true. Yes, readers, I’m planning to attend NBA All-Star 2013.
QuintEvents is the only event company with Official Relationships with 6 of the world’s
greatest names in sports including:

I’m going to partner with them to experience NBA All-Star 2013!
This is what I’ll be doing:
Friday - BBVA Rising Stars Challenge – I’ll experience 18 of the league’s brightest young stars from the Rookie and Sophomore classes battling it out in an epic game played in two 20-minute halves with no foul outs.
Saturday – State Farm All-Star Saturday Night - NBA All-Star Saturday Night includes four competitions, Shooting Stars, Taco Bell Skills Challenge, Foot Locker Three-Point Contest, and Sprite Slam Dunk, featuring some of the NBA’s best players.
Sunday – 2013 NBA All-Star Game - Basketball’s heroes face off in a battle of East vs. West in an all-out star spectacular game.
I included an NBA game on my 2013 Bucket List, but this is even beyond my wildest imagination. Following my philosophy, the more unrealistic I am with my dreams and goals, the more I’m able to achieve, I’ve been thinking outside the box and stopping at nothing. 2013 is going to be epic!
Stay tuned for photos, videos, and NBA stars. You can follow me to the games, behind the scenes, and around Houston, Texas. I want this to be the most interactive, up-to-date experience yet! It will be a blast to bring you along.
