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.

There were also performances by Lenny Kravitz and Bruno Mars. Rihanna, Kanye and Drake performed during half-time break.
