So, the NBA All-Star Game was insane. It started off with a little Cirque du Soleil performance, then Drake (along with 30 scantily clad NBA dancers) greeted all of the players as they were introduced. Then Ne-Yo did a lovely rendition of the American national anthem, while Nelly Furtado put her own personal touch on O Canada. It was interesting.
Before the game even started, Magic Johnson introduced Kobe Bryant and there were a couple of speeches... and if this sounds like a lot of name-dropping, it's unbelievably difficult to write anything about the All-Star game without doing so. Since we're on a role, Michael Jordan was there. And so was Ben Affleck. And Jon Stewart. Oh, and Sting did the half-time show.
It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we soaked it all in. Well, except for the $16 beers.
The event was lots of fun; we enjoyed sipping on drinks, watching sharks and jellyfish swim around, and listening to some jazz to kick off our long weekend.
Despite all that, we still had lots of time to chill out. Here are some more photos from our eventful weekend:
