For the second straight year, the big men beat the guards, as Kristaps Porzingis bests Gordon Hayward in the final round of the Taco Bell Skills Challenge. Porzingis is the first Knicks player to win an All-Star Saturday event since Landry Fields was part of the winning Shooting Stars team in 2012.

Kristaps Porzingis is your Skills Challenge champion, which is completely absurd because he's 7-foot-3. He truly is a unicorn.

Dwyane Wade says his close friends and fellow 2003 draftees LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony now being the oldest players at All-Star weekend is a testament to their longevity saying, "I'm proud of those guys, and I want them to continue to keep going until they decide not to play this game anymore."

Something to keep in mind, if the Yankees aren't good, their No. 1 trade commodity would likely be ... Dellin Betances.

Jim Murray, Dellin Betances' agent, responded to Yankees' president Randy Levine's criticism by telling ESPN, "It is bizarre to me. I have no idea why he would have a press conference today – win or lose."

Dellin Betances: "I was planning on putting everything behind me until I was aware of Randy Levine's comments saying I was the victim in this whole process and saying how much they love me, but then they take me in a room trash me for about an hour-and-a-half. I thought that was unfair."
