All-Star weekend in New Orleans is starting today and this will be your guide so you don’t miss any of the action. This will only include events that matter and that normal people’s TV packages will provide. Nobody wants to watch Adam Silver eat brunch with Bill Russell.
This year the Celebrity game will feature some flashy ex-NBA players who are still able to run. It’ll be exiting to watch Jason “White Chocolate” Williams, Baron Davis, and Masta P out on the floor. I expect JWill to have 20+ assists if the bosos on his team can make some shots.
