Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. At what team's Vivint Arena were the 2023 All-Star Game festivities held? The team had previously hosted the 1993 All-Star Game when its stars John Stockton and Karl Malone were in the prime of their careers.

Answer: Utah Jazz

The 2023 NBA All-Star Game festivities took place in Salt Lake City at Vivint Arena, the home of the Utah Jazz. This was the second time that the Utah Jazz had hosted the NBA All-Star Game. The prior time being in 1993 when the game was held at the Delta Center, the arena's former name. The arena was opened in 1991 and is located just a 30 km (18.6 mi) drive to the Great Salt Lake.
2. What player signed a contract with the Philadelphia 76ers just four days before he wowed the crowd and won the 2023 NBA Slam Dunk Contest?

Answer: Mac McClung

Mac McClung was born in 1999 in Kingsport, TN and he played college basketball at Georgetown and Texas Tech. Although he registered a gravity defying 43.5 inch vertical leap at the 2021 NBA Combine, McClung was undrafted. Prior to getting a two-way contract by the Philadelphia 76ers, he played for the Delaware Blue Coats, the 76ers's G League affiliate.

At the 2023 Slam Dunk Contest during All-Star weekend, McClung amazed the judges and the crowd with his four dunks getting 19 out of 20 perfect 50 scores across the five judges. His dunks included jumping over two of his friends and a final dunk in which he nearly completed two spins (a 720) in the air.
3. What sharpshooter from the Portland Trail Blazers won the NBA Three-Point Contest for the first time in his career, at All-Star weekend in 2023?

Answer: Damian Lillard

Damian Lillard was born in 1990 and he was the sixth pick in the first round by the Portland Trail Blazers in 2012. Lillard immediately shined in the NBA as he was the unanimous winner of the Rookie of the Year award and he was voted to the All-Star Game seven times during his first 10 seasons.

At the 2023 Three-Point Contest, Lillard scored 26 points in the first round while Tyrese Haliburton scored 31 and Buddy Hield scored 23. In the final round, Lillard again scored 26 while Hield scored 25 and Haliburton 17. The win for Lillard was not surprising as he was one of the most prolific three-point shooters over the first 10 years of his career.
4. The 2023 NBA All-Star teams were drafted by two captains who received the most fan votes. Which storied 38-year old player was an All-Star captain for the sixth straight year?

Answer: LeBron James

Lebron James received the most votes for Western Conference players which made him one of the captains for the All-Star Game. In 2018 the NBA changed the format for the All-Star Game to have two captains draft teams rather than having the Western Conference players go against Eastern Conference players. From 2018 to 2023, Lebron James was a captain for each All-Star Game contest. Earlier in the 2022-23 NBA season, Lebron James passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to become the NBA's all-time leading regular season scorer.
