While Hollywood’s elite watched, the 60th NBA All-Star Game played out Sunday, February 20, 2011 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. It’s a great venue to take the family to on any LA vacation, and this night was no exception.
The best players, including Kobe Byrant, Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire, were present on the court.
But, it may have been hard for many fans to focus on the game since the courtside seats were jam packed with celebrities.
The Kardashian clan was present with Khloe sitting next to her husband, Lakers’ star Lamar Odom. Also with them were stepfather Bruce Jenner, brother Rob, as well as, younger sisters Kylie and Kendall.
Tween girls everywhere were pleasantly pleased when pop sensation Justin Bieber was named the Celebrity MVP after sinking a three-pointer during the All-Star Celebrity game. The 16-year-old Canadian teen idol travels with an extensive support group, including his mother, Pattie Mallette.
After the game @justinbieber tweeted, “Great night @kingjames with the triple double and my guy KOBE with the MVP!!”
Other big name stars taking in the game included Beyonce and Jay-Z, Diddy, Gabrielle Union, Dustin Hoffman, Steve Tyler, John Legend and Lil Wayne.
Other than the Western Conference winning with a score of 148-143, the highlight of the game would have to the half-time performance by Rihanna. The “Umbrella” songstress celebrated her 23rd birthday on that day of the game. Special guest appearances during her half-time show included Drake and Kanye West.
