NBA All Star U-Haul

Atlanta Police Pull Over U-Haul Full of Twerking Instagram Models, Confirming NBA All-Star Weekend is Back

While it may have been contentious, the 2021 NBA All-Star Weekend in Atlanta brought us a lot of things. From Steph Curry’s historic 3-Point contest to Zion Williamson’s infamous missed dunk, there was a lot happening on the court, but perhaps the biggest and most exciting news came off it.

As NBA commissioner Adam Silver and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms scrambled to cap fans entering the city for the sporting event, Americans seemingly didn’t get the memo. Hundreds of fans were seen sleeping in their cars, with hotels in the area packed out and accommodation at capacity.

Reports from the New York Times Sports even suggested that the NBA had sent out “roughly 200 letters with cease-and0desist orders to various party promoters in the Atlanta area that have used the league’s All-Star logo and event name in connection with unaffiliated events”.

But one group of clap-happy basketball fans reportedly found a creative way to get the party started. During All-Star Weekend, a group of Instagram models were seen partying out of a U-Haul van, because no accommodation, no worries, right? Unfortunately, the models were getting a little too rowdy, however, with those involved claiming they were pulled over by the police after they got into a car accident in the van.

While there’s still a lot of conjecture over what really happened inside that NBA All-Star party U-Haul, one massive question remains unanswered – Why didn’t James Harden get an invite?
