TThe most anticipated part of the entire weekend is of course the All Star game! The event took place at Madison Square Garden in front of a packed arena! The star studded event didn’t just include the stars on the court – the stands were filled with all kinds of familiar faces in the entertainment and sports world. It’s always fun watching the all star game because you can see how some of your favorite players would play on the same team – something we wouldn’t normally get to see throughout the regular season. These matchups and teammates made it a very interesting game to watch. Especially on the west – Stephen Curry and Chris Paul dishing assists – watching Russell Westbrook score everything coming his way as well! The game ended with the West taking the victory, as well as Russell winning MVP with 41 points! The second highest scorer ever in an All Star game (Off by 1 point for the most number!) It was a fun event to get to see live, make sure to check out the highlights on nba.com

EEvery year during all star weekend, one of the most exclusive parties to get access to is the Jordan Brand party, hosted by Michael Jordan himself. This year was no different – a line of invite-only guests wrapped around the building, as people waited in below freezing temperatures to get inside. The building, located on Wall Street, was two stories big, as well as 2 different stages for artists to perform. Ariana Grande was the first to come out and perform. A side stage had Prince performing. The upper level was a VIP floor that included just about every celebrity you could think of – Michael Jordan, Beyonce, Jay Z, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Andre Drummond, James Harden, Victor Oladipo, Ludacris, Nelly, Derek Jeter and the list goes on…I snapped some pics to share some of the inside atmosphere. Overall it was a pretty cool event to check out!
