Thunder guard Russell Westbrook stole the show in the NBA All-Star Game Sunday night, setting a record for points in a half with 27 on his way to an MVP-winning 41-point performance. Timberwolves rookie Zach LaVine won the dunk title Saturday with a performance that included a nod to Space Jam. Victor Oladipo got style points for singing New York, New York before a dunk. Steph Curry grabbed the three-point crown but J.J. Reddick hit the most two-pointers. The celebrity sightings during the weekend included Ben Stiller, Rob Gronkowski and a host of others. 


More Swimsuit Models

Be sure to tune in to the Travel Channel all week as it premieres SI: The Making of Swimsuit 2015, a five-part, behind-the-scenes look at the making of this year's swimsuit issue, as part of Beach Week. As if that were not enticing enough, the whole event is hosted by Nina Agdal.


Scorpion Delays Oregon State Flight

The Oregon State basketball team got held up in Los Angeles on Saturday after a scorpion stung a woman on the Alaskan Airlines flight. The plane had to return to the gate so the woman could receive medical attention.


Lovely Lady of the Day

This year marks Genevieve Morton's sixth appearance in the Swimsuit Issue, and she looks as stunning as ever at her shoot in St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The South African beauty can be found on Instagram and Twitter, in addition to the pages of the magazine. (click here for full-size gallery)


Delanie Walker is a Bad Valentine

Titans tight end Delanie Walker did not have a very romantic Valentine's Day after his ex-girlfriend signed into his Instagram account and posted a long tirade accusing him of cheating and dumping her while she was pregnant with their child.


Weiner Wreck

The Oscar Meyer Weinermobile got into an accident this weekend. No one was hurt but some damage was done to the front fender. It is not the 'wurst' crash you have ever seen, but it will be tough for the iconic car to ketchup with its tour dates.


Invisible Banana Peel

Arizona's Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had the ultimate in failed dunks on Friday, but made up for it on Sunday with a posterization of Washington State's Josh Hawkinson.
