NBA All-Star Game: East 126 - West 137

A new generation of players arrived to the All-Star Game, with 9 players in their debut (this number had been lower if the 1999 All-Star Weekend had been celebrated). In 1977 and 1980, 9 players also debut, but the record was established in 1994 with 10.
Looking at the rosters, the West was clearly better, and they show it later on the court. Two Western players, Shaquille O'Neal and Tim Duncan, shared MVP honors. Besides, West had in Kevin Garnett another player who could get the MVP.
Allen Iverson was the best player in the East, scoring and assisting
West commanded almost all game, but till the last quarter the game wasn't decided.
West team utilized only 10 players, because David Robinson only played 7 minutes due to shoulder pains, and Karl Malone (who arrived Sunday instead of two days before like the rest of the players) played only 3 minutes.

MVP: Shaquille O'Neal & Tim Duncan (West)

Slam Dunk Contest: Vince Carter

Watch all the Dunks

When a player make three perfect dunks, there isn't doubts about his victory.
In the year 2000 this player was Vince Carter. He had two great rivals in Steve Francis, and his cousin Tracy McGrady. In the first round the best two dunks were counted.
The main change in this edition was a required dunk for each player, with the help of another player.

NBA Rookie Challenge: Rookies 92 - Sophomores 83 (OT)

Two good generations of players were joined in Oakland. First time that second year players could participate in this game. A fair opportunity because '99 rookies did not have their own All-Star.
It was an exciting game full of spectacular plays. They played two halves of 15 minutes, and an overtime of 5. The three pointers of Paul Pierce and Andre Miller, the passes of Jason Williams, and a lot of dunks (Andre Miller angered people when he made a lay-up instead of a dunk). The best of all was Elton Brand (number 1 in 1999 draft) who scored 14 points and got 21 rebounds!, 12 offensive, in 30 minutes. These rebounds helped his team to win 50-36 in rebounds.
In a very tied game (with 18 changes of leader during the game), the resolution had to be in the overtime, where the rookie team leaded 11-2.
This game could have been better with players like Jason Terry, Baron Davis, Vince Carter, Shawn Marion... who didn't play for different reasons. 

MVP: Elton Brand (Rookies)
