We're at the halfway point of the NBA season and it's time for All Star Weekend. The events kick off on Friday with the All-Star Celebrity Game. Peloton coach Alex Toussaint returns as the reigning MVP and will be joined by Hasan Minhaj, Janelle Monáe, The Miz, and more celebrities on the court.
The weekend's activities lead up to the main event when Team Giannis takes on Team Lebron on Sunday night. For the first time, the teams will be chosen just before the game, with Giannis and Lebron going back and forth to choose players for their squads.
