The NBA All Star Weekend started off with a bang (sort of) last night when Justin Bieber won MVP in a losing cause in the celebrity game, and later when John Wall led the rookies to a win over the sophmores in the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge.
The three day hoops extravaganza continues today with some more notable events.
Saturday's Notable NBA All Star Weekend Events:â†µ
The D League All Star Game, 5 p.m. NBATV: The NBA's top development league stars will compete in their version of the All Star game, a contest that will hopefully give a sneak peek at future stars.â†µ
All Star Ultimate Fantasy Draft, 6 p.m. TNT: The analyst team at TNT will select their ultimate NBA All Star Team of all time. I Wonder how many Wizards will be on that roster?â†µ
Commissioner Stern's press conference, 7 p.m. NBATV: As with any commissioner's press conference, this will most likely revolve around the state of the league, and an update on the current labor negotiations.â†µ
All Star Saturday Night, 8:30 p.m. TNT: This is the main event tonight that will include the Skills Challenge, the Three Point Contest, and of course, the big one, the dunk contest that will feature names like Blake Griffin and JaVale McGee. The early money is on Griffin (for obvious reasons), but don't count McGee out, he's certainly capable of winning this.
