17. The Merger Game

Year and Host City: 1977, Milwaukee

If it weren't for the ABA merging with the NBA, an All-Star Weekend probably would have never existed. Luckily, in 1976, the two sides reached an agreement and the Three-Point Shootout and the Slam Dunk Competition came along for the ride. We are eternally thankful for that.
