The NBA All-Star Weekend returns February 14-16 to take over New Orleans. As flight plans are being worked out and hotels are being booked up, the NBA has all sorts of activities planned to promote the prowess of their athletes and the beauty of the game.
However, the only thing that really matters about All-Star Weekend is the stuff that the NBA can’t really control.
1. Lil’ Wayne
It’s his friggin’ home town. You know Lil Wayne aka Weezy aka Tunechi will be there, locks flowing in the wind, microphone in hand and running with a full gambit of YMCMB members onstage with him and all over the arenas. Will the heavyweights like Drake and Nicki Minaj be there too?
2. Girls Girls Girls
The only thing more prevalent than celebrities during the NBA All-Star weekend are the women that want to get next to them. Party after party after party will feature every model chick, video girl and random beauties from both east and west of the Mississippi.
3. JR Smith getting into trouble.
JR Smith’s career is a perplexing one to everyone, including him. After winning Sixth Man Of The Year and signing a 3-year, $18 million contract in the offseason he celebrated by violating the NBA’s drug policy and getting himself benched with typical JR Smith antics.
So when the basketball world descends on New Orleans while JR Smith’s NBA career is up in the air, why wouldn’t he party hard during the All-Star break? This will probably be legendary.
