The Human Highlight Film, threw a jab at Blake Griffen when he was asked about this weekend’s upcoming NBA All-Star weekend.

”It’s different,” he said Friday, drawing laughs from a crowd of reporters that surrounded him in a large hotel ballroom in midtown Manhattan. ”We never used props. I jumped over a car when I was a kid.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee and Zach LaVine – aren’t the big name stars that the dunk contest use to bring out. I personally think we are in for a solid contest with Giannis and Oladipo.

There is a lot of buzz around the 3-point contest.

Golden State Warriors guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are headlining the event with Atlanta’s Kyle Korver, Houston’s James Harden and Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving, Portland’s Wesley Matthews, the Los Angeles Clippers’ J.J. Redick and defending champion Marco Belinelli of San Antonio.

”It definitely should be one of the most fun parts of the weekend,” Curry said.

”It seemed like there was a three- or four-year stretch where they were just getting random dudes, like, ‘Oh, you’re coming to All-Star weekend? You can be in the 3-point contest!”’ Redick said. ”I was hoping this year they wouldn’t invite (Nets center) Mason Plumlee, and they didn’t. The field is great on paper. I do feel like it’s the best competition ever. It has that feel.”
