    The NBA had named the All-Star team, had named the players for the Rising Stars Challenge (what you and I call the rookie/sophomore game) and had basically everything in place for All-Star Weekend Feb. 24-26 in Orlando. Then Jeremy Lin and Linsanity came along. Now the league is scrambling to fit their hottest star into…

    Nicki Minaj

    Well, maybe Nicki Minaj can redeem her Grammys performance. She, and Pitbull with Ne-Yo are the lineup for the halftime entertainment at the All-Star Game Feb. 26 in Orlando, the league announced.

    Kevin Love is an All-Star, selected by the coaches as a reserve. He earned it and there was no suspense about whether he would make it. But Love has other plans for All-Star Weekend, too, tweets Jerry Zgoda of the Star-Tribune. Love says he also will compete in three-point shooting contest at All Star Game….…

    Rookie John Wall, of the Washington Wiza

    The NBA is trying to change the fortunes of what used to be the overlooked and uninteresting All-Star weekend Rookie Challenge (where the rookies played the sophomores). This year TNT’s Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are picking teams playground style (Team Shaq and Team Chuck) from a pool of rookies and sophomores — and the…

    It’s one of the “highlights” — and we use the term loosely — of Friday night of All-Star weekend: NBA rookies taking on NBA sophomores (officially called the Rookie Challenge).
