D-League All-Star game, 3 p.m. (NBATV)

Former Atlanta Hawks forward James Nunnally is among the participants in this year's NBA D-League All-Star Game. Nunnally will be part of the West squad that also includes Devin Ebanks and Ike Diogu. The East lineup is star studded headlined by Pierre Jackson and Manny Harris.

All-Star Saturday night coverage begins at 8:30 p.m. on TNT

Shooting Stars Competition

Atlanta Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins will team up with Chris Bosh and Swin Cash as they look to defend their 2013 crown in the Shooting Stars Competition.

Skills Challenge

The skills challenge has a revamped format this season but features a lot of rising stars and good young prospects including Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Three-point shootout

Kyrie Irving looks to defend his three-point championship in a competition that also includes former Hawks All-Star Joe Johnson. The event has seen a small tweak as competitors will now get to select one of five racks to contain all money balls.

Slam Dunk Contest

For many years the Slam Dunk Contest was the crown jewel of All-Star Weekend. A lot of that allure has faded over the years and this season's contest has seen another tweak in the rules. However, this is one of the best fields of participants that the contest has seen in sometime led by Indiana's Paul George.
