2011 NBA All-Star Game Attracts Big Stars To Staples Center

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).
