    The NBA All-Star activities begin at 4:30 p.m. Arizona time according to my DirecTV guide schedule.

    The All-Star game starts at 6 p.m. Arizona time.

    It will be televised on TNT. Here are the activities organized around the game.

    From CBS Sports:


    Skills Challenge

    3-Point Contest

    Dunk Contest

    I want to see more All-Star replacements. Maybe we can let Ayton play for the East. :D

    Yeah, everything is being done in one day. It will make it easier to watch.

    I might tune-in and watch the activities and game through the Dunk Contest.

    This is Silvers first real screw up this season. Shouldn’t even be having an all star game.

    Magic City could sink the season possibly.

    Really hope the entire league has been clandestinely vaccinated, and Silver instituted a gag order so as to preserve the veneer of social egalitarianism.

    What happens if there is a problem at the game? Then EVERY major star in the league would have to sit due to contact tracing. Isn’t worth the danger, but money talks I guess.

    That’s why I think they’re all vaccinated. Risk/reward is not even close to close.

    yeah... the naked greed is pretty ugly to bring all these players from around the country to one place together in the middle of a pandemic.
