NBA All-Star Game Open Thread

The weekend leads up to the game, which is likely to be a letdown, especially for Wolves fans, after the last couple of days.

TV: TNT

The NBA All Star weekend will wrap up with, well, the actual game on Sunday night. All Star games don't really get my juices flowing, but this one may be of interest to watch only because it will be Kobe Bryant's final appearance of his historic career. The Wolves don't have any horses in this race, but I may tune in for a little bit and do some writing or something. Also, Sting is performing at halftime and I can't wait to see what happens. I do enjoy The Police, but I wouldn't be shocked if most the younger players and audience 1. have no idea who he is or 2. have a few "Oh, he sings this song?!" moments throughout his performance. If All Star games aren't your thing, I'm sure there will be a Property Brothers marathon going on on HGTV or something.

No doubt not as exciting as Zach LaVine in the dunk contest, but the NBA is off until late this week, so you might as well watch what you can.
