Win Butler won the MVP trophy at today’s Celebrity All-Star game in Toronto, and the Arcade Fire frontman used his post-game interview with Sage Steele to suggest that the U.S. could learn a few things from Canada this election year. Steele wasn’t having anything of it, shutting Butler down with a “We’re talking about…
This morning the NBA announced that Sting will perform during halftime of next month’s All-Star Game. I guess I must have missed the part where it also announced that the game would be held in the cabin of Tina Brown’s Jaguar.
The starters for the NBA All-Star Game were revealed last night, and there was one name that stuck out on the list of the final vote tallies for the Western Conference team.
All-star fan voting almost never results in an accurate representation of the most worthy players. Kobe Bryant is leading all NBA players in voting this season despite shooting 34% and NHLer John Scott had the most votes of all hockey players before he was released by the Coyotes. Kyrie Irving is slated to start for…
Here's a few clips of mic'd-up participants in last night's NBA all-star game, the best of which feature Western Conference head coach Steve Kerr really flexing his coaching muscles.
It continues to astonish us how Turner—a company that gets nearly every aspect of NBA broadcasting perfect—continues to trot out known idiot Reggie Miller as its lead analyst. Reggie's lack of basic basketball knowledge emerged again tonight:

If there's one thing we know about our friends at The Starters, it's that they know how to ask the important questions. Since this year's all-star game was played in the Smoothie King Center, they decided to ask a handful of NBA players to come up with their own signature smoothie.

Aloe Blacc sings that "The Man" song used in all the Beats Audio headphone commercials. Fans in attendance at tonight's NBA All-Star Game festivities in New Orleans probably wish they had some noise-canceling technology like Richard Sherman or Kevin Garnett, because Blacc's performance there was truly, truly awful.
Charles Barkley is in New Orleans for NBA all-star weekend, and last night he made an appearance at The Cat's Meow, where he attempted to rap "Gin and Juice" on stage. It did not go well.
If the NBA dunk contest has disappointed you in recent years, you might consider tuning into this year's edition. The NBA has instituted a new set of rules for the contest, and they have the potential to make this year's version much more watchable than the boring, craptastic contests we've seen in years past.
ESPN's Marc Stein has the scoop on which six players will be competing in this year's dunk contest, and it's actually a pretty strong field. Paul George, John Wall, Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes, Terrence Ross, and Ben McLemore will be this year's competitors.
There was a press conference in Toronto today to announce that the city will be hosting the 2016 NBA all-star game. Crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford was there.
