The 2011 NBA All-Star game is in Los Angeles this year, and the entire weekend kicks off earlier than you might think. Here is a full list of events, when you can catch them, and what you should know about them.
- BBVA Celebrity Game, 4, ESPN: Because watching an entire 3d film dedicated to the life of Justin Beiber isn't enough for some of you people. You have to watch him play basketball too.
- T-Mobile Rookie Challenge, 6, TNT: The Rookies beat the Sophomores last year for the first time in recent memory. That winning team returns to face a new Rookie squad featuring Blake Griffin and others who intend to make life difficult for them. Eric Bledsoe of the Clippers is also on the rookie squad.
- 60th Annual All-Star Game, 4, TNT: This is what you've all been waiting for. All offense, no defense, and lots of dunks. Should be a good one this year, and the conclusion of an awfully busy weekend for Blake Griffin.
