Don’t look now, but the good folks at SLAM are back at it and bringing you the hottest NBA All Star action live and direct on these here Internets. This year’s Sprint Celebrity Game promises to be a good one, with such stars as Common, Kevin Hart and six-time Olympic gold medal winner, Usain Bolt.
As is always the case, fans are shrieking like their teeny boppers on steroids, but it’s still a great atmosphere with copious amounts of celebrities and assorted beautiful people from around the nation.
And now, without further ado, let’s get this party started!
Russell Westbrook is here and he’s committing fashion crimes. I can’t even fathom what was the motivation behind his outfit. Trey Songz is warming up, as is Ne-Yo, who has quite the head on him.
Rocsi of BET’s 106 & Park fame is out here looking like all kinds of “yummy.” Bruce Bowen is here, too. Let’s hope he doesn’t get too grimy on D. These celebs can’t take that kind of pressure.
Good to see Stuart Scott MC-ing tonight. I know he’ll beat that cancer again.
Irv Gotti just walked in with a bevy of beauties. That dude moves in silence like lasagna for real.
Queen Latifah is coaching. Will she be Just Wright for the job?
Arne Duncan is back to school cats on the court like he did last year.
Clyde Drexler, a two-time champion with the Houston Rockets, gets the loudest applause.
Kevin Hart is about to bring all of the LOLZ to this game.
James Harden, who is clean as a whistle, also gets a nice reaction from the home crowd.
Kevin clowning Russ’ pants already…
They’re giving away free stuff. People go crazy for free stuff.
Kevin Hart with a nifty finger roll for the game’s first deuce.
DJ Irie, Miami Heat’s game DJ, is bringing the heat on the 1′s and 2′s.
Hunger Games got game?
Kevin Hart with another basket. He’s really trying to re-up on that MVP trophy.
This ain’t a movie, Common. You won’t be hitting all those J’s.
Nick Cannon breaks out an And-1 on ‘em. He’s rocking some Adidas Jeremy Scott’s.
I wanna see Clyde bang on ‘em one good time, for old time’s sake. Can he take one more flight? We’ll see…
Usain Bolt with a two-hander!
What was Terrance J thinking with that move? This ain’t the Rucker…
West up 16-9 after the first quarter.
Kevin Hart calling out Usain Bolt in a foot race. Bolt must be thinking, “Too easy!”
Hutcherson got range! That’s two from deep from the Hunger Games star.
Bolt just missed an alley. That would have been straight dopium.

Second half coming up…

Duncan ballin’ out here, people.
Dikembe Mutombo with the block. His GEICO commercial is hilarity.
The West look they want this more than the East. Bolt needs to get it going.

This is some sloppy play.
I want to see Rocsi get a basket.
Another AB Special.
One more quarter to go.
