It was East meets West at the 2011 All Star Game. The Western Conference won in a tight game, 148-143. With 37 points and 13 rebounds, Kobe Bryant won a fourth MVP award. With the game in Los Angeles this year, the crowd was full of celebrities including Jay-Z and Beyonce and hardcore Lakers fan Jack Nicholson. Seriously, what would a basketball game be without Jack screaming from the sidelines?
The stars of the Miami Heat showed up looking dapper. Chris, LeBron and Dwyane are some of the best dressed men in the NBA.
Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen represented The Boston Celtics. Looking good fellas!
Steven Tyler, always a hot mess. I love him.
Dustin Hoffman showed up with his lookalike son Jake.
Things kicked off with a performance from Bruno Mars. Josh Groban didn’t mess up the lyrics to the National Anthem while Melanie Fiona sang the Canadian National anthem.
Lenny Kravitz played while the players were being introduced. I don’t know why he’s been everywhere lately, but I don’t hate it.
Beyonce showed off her glittery Louboutins with husband Jay-Z.
Just Bieber was there. Because he’s everywhere.
Nick Cannon and Diddy were really into the game. Or both thinking about how much money they have.
The Joker and his son Raymond.
During Half-time Rihanna performed a medley of her hits including “Umbrella” and “Rude Boy.” She also brought out Drake and Kanye. Can we talk about Kanye’s pants for a minute?
It was a long, LONG, game but I have to say all of Charles Barkley’s commentary was worth it. He even got Stevie Wonder to sing Happy Birthday to him!
