NBA All-Star Weekend

The NBA All-Star Game that transpired Sunday — won by the West, 148-143 — was a showcase event and nonstop party that could linger in the collective psyche of the basketball public for years to come.

He was joking and joshing while sporting a grin from ear to ear.

A lot of movie stars were present to witness the game and attend the after party. The event was star-studded and considered a real success. On game night, Josh Groban sang the national anthem.
