NBA All-Star Game

  1. Alicia Keys to perform at halftime of NBA All-Star Game

    Singer Keys performs the National Anthem prior to start of NFL Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans

    Fresh off hitting the over with her lounge-style rendition of the national anthem at the Super Bowl, Alicia Keys is taking over the NBA All-Star Game as the halftime entertainment. Keys, who has 14 Grammys at home, likely will be doing some songs off her new album “Girl on Fire” (including probably the title track)…

    UPDATE 4:30 pm: Break out the beads, David Stern has made it official — the 2014 NBA All-Star Game will be in New Orleans. “There is no better place to celebrate and showcase the NBA than in New Orleans, a city with a rich tradition of hosting major events that is second-to-none,” Stern said. “Our…

  3. NBA All-Star starting teams pretty much set already

    You can keep voting on the NBA All-Star Game players through the end of the month — you can vote every day between now and then, if your heart so desires. It’s not going to matter, the All-Star Game starters are pretty locked in. The NBA released the second round of All-Star balloting returns on…

  4. Kobe MVP mission was entertaining, just like All-Star Game should be

    Feb 21, 2011, 2:08 AM EDT

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    It was obvious Kobe Bryant was going hard after the MVP three minutes into the game. That’s when, with the score tied just 6-6, Kobe got the ball in the right corner, drove baseline on Derrick Rose, the help defense was late and he went up-and-under for the kind of reverse jam he probably hasn’t…

  6. Your All-Star weekend schedule

    It was so nice of David Stern and the NBA to bring the All-Star Game to the home city of PBT (myself and John Krolik both live here). That way we still have to deal with family and other responsibilities in addition to work. No trip out of town for us. No working vacation. Nope,…

  7. Lenny Kravitz: “Come on Get it” the All-Star trailer

    Feb 14, 2011, 11:22 AM EDT

    Lenny Kravitz was in Los Angeles for the Grammys Sunday night, taking on the vital role of introducing Muse. Then going to the parties. But he’s hanging out for a week in the City of Angels because he will be performing at the NBA All-Star Game Sunday, performing his hit “Come and Get It.” Which…

  8. Your All-Star Game entertainment: Rihanna and Lenny Kravitz

    Feb 9, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    MTV Europe Music Awards 2010 - Show

    Yes, the musical acts deserve their own post. The NBA All-Star Game is a show, a weekend of entertainment and parties where there happens to be a basketball game at one point. And some Blake Griffin dunks. So the musical acts get some love. Sunday during the player introductions you are gonna go the way…

  9. Winderman: All-Star reserves show things still deeper out West

    Feb 3, 2011, 8:35 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Thursday’s lesson is simple and to the point. West? Good. East? Not so good. Granted All-Star selections are subjective. But after the All-Star reserves were announced Thursday night for the Eastern Conference, there sort of was a shrug, a “that’s about right” reaction. No righteous indignation. One can only muster so much outrage over the…

  10. Four Celtics but no Love among All-Star Game reserves

    Feb 3, 2011, 8:11 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    David Stern has some work to do out West. The coaches’ selections for the seven All-Star Game reserves for each conference came out and the East went pretty much to form. Now David Stern gets to add one player to that list and he has some pretty clear choices. The Western Conference? That’s hard. You can…

  11. D-League All-Star Game rosters announced

    Just a few hours before Blake Griffin wins the Dunk Contest on Feb. 19, a bunch of guys who want their NBA shot will get a turn in the spotlight. Sort of. The D-League All-Star game is part of the All-Star weekend festivities and is taking place next door to Staples Center at the NBA…

  12. How do you feel about skin-tight All-Star jerseys?

    Feb 1, 2011, 3:20 PM EDT

    Rose compression jersey

    While the shorts have gone baggy — and may we never return to the ‘80s short-shorts — the latest thing in NBA jerseys may be skin-tight compression look. These are an option for NBA players participating in the All-Star Game, according to UniWatch (via The Basketball Jones). The picture here doesn’t do it justice, to…

  13. These should be your All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 28, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    The fans have spoken — the 10 NBA All-Star Game starters have been chosen. And as we said before, good on ya. The fans did well this time around. The way this works is the fans pick the five starters, then the coaches (or more likely an assistant coach, or the video guy, or the…

  14. Winderman: Will coaches pick four Celtics for Eastern All-Star reserves?

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    Thursday night merely is the show. No actual work is involved, as the results of fan balloting for All-Star starters are revealed. Then conference coaches take over from there, having to fill out ballot for the seven reserves in each conference (Commissioner David Stern selects replacements for any injured players). This year, it will be…

  15. Fans send Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett to bench in latest All-Star balloting

    Jan 13, 2011, 1:45 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Detroit Pistons, Game 6

    Apparently Boston sports fans have been so focused on what Tom Brady is going to do to the Jets secondary they forgot to vote for the NBA All-Star Game starters. How else do you explain the latest release of NBA All-Star voting which drops two Celtics from the starting lineup? Chicago’s Derrick Rose has leapfrogged…

  16. Report: Blake Griffin, JaVale McGee, Serge Ibaka, Brandon Jennings in dunk contest

    We thought it looked like Blake Griffin was going to be in the All-Star Weekend dunk contest, and now that appears all but official. This 2011 dunk contest will feature the Clippers Blake Griffin, the Wizards’ JaVale McGee, the Thunder’s Serge Ibaka and the Bucks’ Brandon Jennings, according to the Los Angeles Times. The official…

  17. Kobe Bryant still leads everyone in All-Star voting

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    With his worldwide popularity — he sells more jerseys in China than Yao Ming — it shouldn’t be a shock that Kobe Bryant is on top of the NBA’s All-Star balloting. The second round of released vote totals has Bryant with 1,153,694, well ahead of second place overall and Eastern Conference leader Dwight Howard (988,572).…

  18. NBA All-Star Game coming to Orlando in 2012

    May 4, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    NBA groupies, NBA players and their posses and Mickey Mouse — finally all in one place. Bring the entire family. The new Amway Center in Orlando — set to open this fall — will host the NBA All-Star Game and weekend in 2012. This largely falls in line with the NBA’s effort to give teams…

  19. Beware fake All-Star gear, league says

    Feb 8, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    The NBA has put out a news release on how to avoid counterfeit All-Star gear during the league’s big weekend coming up, according to the Dallas Morning News’ Eddie Sefko. Among the suggestions are shopping at NBA-authorized locations (naturally), looking for the league’s custom hologram, and avoiding items with ripped tags or irregular markings. Apparently…
