The All-Star Game is on ESPN and WatchESPN at 3:30 p.m. ET. It will be at the U.S. Airways Arena in Phoenix.

On Friday, the East and West teams practiced, and there were some Vines.

First, here's a tomahawk dunk by Tulsa Shock forward Glory Johnson:

And now, a two handed dunk by Brittney Griner:

Here's to hoping that the game is fun for the fans in attendance, whether it's dunks in the middle of and in the flow of the game. Or perhaps some moves like these, even if two of the players who made these moves aren't going to be playing.

I finally got the hang of making GIF's as of late, and here are some of them which feature crossovers, even though that is up for debate:

First, here's Skylar Diggins, even though I will acknowledge that the defender got tripped in the play by another player:

I think I've over under-played this one. Okay, I've really pushed my luck on this play.

I still like Hartley's drive to the basket here given that she was fouled, but yeah, the crossover, or rather, Maggie Lucas' fall appears to be from a push. But Hartley is prob not strong enough to do it so.... but I won't complain if it worked!:

Last, but not least, here's Seimone Augustus from last year's playoffs, who shows how it's really supposed to be done:

Enjoy the game.
