LA Prepares For 'Managed Chaos' As NBA All Star Weekend Nears

Rex  Shutterstock View View 28

There was no Kevin Hart at this year's Celebrity All-Star Game, which meant no short jokes or on-court hijinks or claims that the MVP wound up in the wrong hands.

The game also has plenty of subplots worthy of attention, a few of which revolve around James, aka "The King". The music world was represented by rapper/player/coach Common, Arcade Fire's (and frequent All-Star Celebrity game player) Win Butler, former EXO member turned actor Kris Wu. A former high school quarterback, he scored six of his team's first 11 points.

NBA All-Star weekend kicks off on Friday night with the Celebrity Game at 8 p.m. CT on ESPN and is followed by the Mountain Dew Kickstart Rising Stars game at 8 p.m. "They want to see us go at it and see us compete and that's what I try to do and that's what I try to tell my teammates to do".

In a unusual twist of fate, four members of Team LeBron have went down with injuries, including DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles), Kristaps Porzingis (knee), John Wall (knee) and Kevin Love (hand).

Traditionally, the All-Stars fixture has been based on the Western Conference versus Eastern Conference format, but that has been discarded to make it more personality driven in keeping with the demands of the times.

But here's the rub: James' replacement players - Paul George, Andre Drummond, Goran Dragic and Kemba Walker - are all quite talented, and the National Basketball Association has sweetened the pot.

Team Lebron was the overwhelming favorite, but it got hit with the injury bug in the three weeks after the initial All-Star draft. He also had five rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes.

This is truly a shame, because there are plenty of All-Stars in the National Basketball Association not playing on February 20 who deserve the opportunity to showcase their talent to the world.

On Saturday there will be the Slam Dunk and three point contests while Sunday is the big finale with the actual NBA All Star game.

SIDELINED STARS: James' team will look much different than the one he drafted after a number of injuries.

Watson said before the game that he got some grief from his fellow golfers about taking up a second sport while in contention. Team LeBron vs. Team Steph.
