On the court, NBA superstars from the Eastern and Western conferences battled it out to see who would prevail in the 2011 NBA All-Star game at The Staples Center on Sunday, February 21. Off the court, superstars from the world of entertainment--like Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Jack Nicholson and Justin Bieber--mingled and cheered on players from the sidelines. The night began with singer Josh Grobin singing the National Anthem and included a live half-time performance featuring Rihanna, Lenny Kravitz, Drake, and Kanye West. The star-studded occasion saw basketball's finest, like Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, duke it out for supremacy, and the West won the game 148-143 (not that we had any doubts).
