NBA All Star Weekend LA - Feb 16-18, 2018
The 2018 NBA Rising Stars Challenge tickets have been released. Click here to go to our ticket page, and see what options you have. Last I checked, tickets were going for as low as $60. Which is a heck of a deal if you ask me. The 2018 NBA All Star Weekend is the next time you will see all the greatest players on one court, and yes the only time all year. The NBA All Star Weekend was amazing in Toronto, but fell short in 2017 in New Orleans. However, it's back in the city of Angels and I know the stars will be out for this one.
West Has Edge at the All-Star Game
The 2017 NBA All-Star rosters have been flooded with some of the most fun players the league has had in years. We will see the best of the best square off against one another in New Orleans this weekend.
East is Lacking
In the Eastern Conference, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving represent the defending champion Cavaliers. Kevin Love would have been there as well if not for a knee injury that will sideline him through the break and possibly all of March.
Let's face it, the 2017 NBA All Star Weekend was horrible. Aaron Gordon couldn't finish a dunk. Klay Thompson couldn't hit a 3 pointer. The Celebrity game you saw an overweight Master P missing layups. It had so much potential, but everything was a bad let down. The Sunday All-Star Game was average watching unibrow put up 52 was okay.
2017 NBA All Star Celebrity game in NOLA was a blowout. The game was weak and fans didn't get much for their buck. However, one glimpse of light was the announcement from Michael Rappaport that him and Snoop Dogg are going to start preparing for the 2018 NBA Celebrity game with two a day workouts. After the 2017 game something needs to happen. Hopefully Kevin Hart comes out of retirement and snoop dogg recruits Justin Bieber and Timberlake and brings back the celebrity game. I'll be in LA for the 2018 NBA All Star Weekend - will you?
