Celebrities at NBA All-Star weekend
It's only fitting that an All-Star weekend in Los Angeles brings out the stars. As some of the NBA's biggest talents take the court at Staples Center, some of Hollywood's biggest names have showed up to celebrate. From Justin Bieber to Arnold Schwarzenegger, here's a look at some of the A-listers who have joined the NBA's midseason festivities. Starting with the Biebes, who not only lured many teary-eyed teenage girls to Staples Center, but also beat out Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen for the BBVA Celebrity Game's MVP award on Friday. The kid with the perfect coif had eight points (3-for-11 shooting), four assists and two rebounds, and was minus-10 in 25 minutes of play (meaning his team was better when he was on the bench) as the West lost, 54-49. Said former Laker Rick Fox of Bieber: "He has the softest hair."
Looking ever so stoic (and awkward) Sudeikis, of "Saturday Night Live" and "Hall Pass" fame, seemed pumped about the East's victory.
A.C. Green, Jimmy Kimmel
Comedian Jimmy Kimmel helped former NBA player A.C. Green get loose before the celebrity game.
Khloe Odom, Kim Kardashian
One is married to Laker Lamar Odom. The other wants to be married to a pro athlete. Both are huge reality TV stars. Here are sisters Khloe Odom and Kim Kardashian, wearing dresses that leave little to the imagination, at an after party at Club Nokia on Friday.
Lamar Odom, Rob Kardashian
Meanwhile, their brother Rob, who competed in the BBVA Celebrity Game earlier in the day, chilled with his brother-in-law, Lamar.
LeBron James, Arnold Schwarzenegger
Now there's a couple you wouldn't expect to see. LeBron and Ahh-nahwld appeared at the After-School All-Stars Hoop Heroes Salute launch party Friday night.
C. Breezy hit the party scene in L.A. on Friday. Apparently he didn't get the memo that this weekend was for the NBA, not the NFL.
Rapper Rick Ross provided some "Aston Martin Music" at Dwight Howard's Exclusive NBA All-Star Weekend Celebration on the Paramount lot in Hollywood on Friday night.
John Legend, Chrissy Teigen
The R&B crooner and his Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model girlfriend were front and center for the Blake Griffin Dunk-fest on Saturday.
The former NBA player took a break from Magic Johnson's private shopping event at Nordstrom in L.A. Seems the man needs a bigger chair.

Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne

Kravitz had a special bonding moment with "Benny the Bull" at Staples Center. Charming.
Funnyman Tucker wanted to be a judge during the dunk contest. So what if his sign was upside down.
T.O. seemed quite please with the array of slam dunks Saturday night. He was even spotted giving JaVale McGee some advice during the competition -- perhaps not very good advice since McGee lost to Blake Griffin.
Perhaps known best as Dr. John Trueman Carter III in "ER," Wyle, and his son Owen, represented the host team well at Staples Center.

The Bad Boy was so impressed by Blake Griffin's dunk-fest Saturday that he wished the NBA would "break some rules" so the Clippers forward could play in the All-Star Game. Someone failed to tell that Griffin was a reserve for the West.

After singing the national anthem, Josh Groban took a seat next to comedian George Lopez.
Stevie Wonder received full play-by-play of the game from his manager and, much to his delight, Wonder's favorite player, Kobe Bryant, was putting on quite a show.
