The NBA's marquee All-Star weekend

The NBA's marquee All-Star weekend

Ben Simmons will be an All-Star sooner or later, and there's nothing Adam Silver can do about it. Eastern Conference teams squaring off, it will now become Team LeBron vs. Team Curry in the All-Star on Sunday.

All-Star Weekend kicks off with the celebrity game on February 16 at 7 p.m. and closes with the highly anticipated All-Star game on February 18.

What will happen if he goes a little too far in making fun of Joel Embiid, or if he needs seven tries to correctly pronounce "Antetokounmpo"? "But what I do think is they missed on an opportunity to televise it". Clearly in any All-Star game, the effort level of players is not going to be at playoff level, but the NBA All-Star game is notorious for lackluster effort and poor quality.

After whetting your appetite with the celebrity game, the heat turns up with the Rising Stars game on TNT at 9 p.m.

There's Simmons' teammate Joel Embiid, who joins him on the World squad, while the USA has Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, who helped Boston lead the East most of the season. Jamal Murray and De'Aaron Fox will suit up in that game. Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon of Milwaukee was picked for the game but is injured.

Tom Daley & Dustin Lance Black Expecting First Child - See Their Cute Announcement!
The couple married in a private ceremony in Devon previous year , surrounded by a small number of friends and family. British diver Tom Daley and screenwriter husband Dustin Lance Black have announced that they are to become parents.

This year, the Celeb Game rosters were determined through a "draft" with ESPN analysts Rachel Nichols and Katie Nolan as coaches. "I've still (had) great first impressions".

DUNK LIKE DAD: Larry Nance Jr., one of the players who went from Los Angeles to Cleveland in the four-player trade at the deadline, will be back in his former home arena to compete in the Slam Dunk Contest. James and Curry got to release their picks but couldn't release the order they took the players, which is what fans are really wondering. "I told them I'd love to play in it, and finally they said I could". I don't know, part of me would hate to see the shootout change in any way, but on the other hand an innovation could help keep this fresh.

Whether the draft takes place weeks before the All-Star game, or 24 hours before tipoff, the National Basketball Association needs to televise this thing next season. I'm always down to see the high-flying short dudes put on for short dudes (in the National Basketball Association sense of short), but there's something thrilling about a big man with insane dunks. The 76ers have won five straight and look like a playoff team after a few dismal years. 37 points (on 26 field goals!), 14 rebounds, three assists and three steals.

Once he did, his game — and the Jazz — took off.

They have been 5-2 to start this month and overall look very encouraging, moving the ball around better than they ever have this season.
