There’s a lot more than just the game to look forward to.
To draw a bit more attention to All-Star weekend, the NBA has enlisted some familiar faces of Hip-Hop. Gym Class Heroes as well as J. Cole will appear on stage during the NBA All-Star Pregame Show. Mary J. Blige will handle the national anthem duties prior to the All-Star game. Young Money’s Nicki Minaj, who is coming off a much talked about Grammy performance, is slated to perform during player introductions. Pitbull will take the big stage at half time, and is sure to be joined by Ne-Yo at some point.
