The 2011 NBA All-Star game at Staples Center was as star-studded as it appeared on TV. Steven Tyler, P. Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Michael Rappaport, Serena Williams, Angela and Vanessa Simmons, Rihanna, Ciara, John Legend, Lil Wayne, Chris Tucker, Bruno Mars, Dustin Hoffman, Neyo, Nick Cannon, Justin Beiber, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Ellen Pompeo, and of course Jack Nicholson to name just a few were all in the building for this year’s event.
Before Tam-Star gets underway, Let’s take a moment to play homage to Ciara’s boots.
From the T-Mobile magenta carpet which started across the street at the Nokia Center, through the secret tunnels and passageways into the Staples Center, Tam-Star’s experience was unforgettable. As we were having lunch yesterday she decided to go to the game literally an hour before tip-off without a ticket. For a look at her exclusive photos from the magenta carpet and a hint as to how she crashed the game without a ticket check out The Magenta Carpet Experience.
Congrats to The West. They rocked the East 148-143 No surprised here, if you follow me on twitter @StilettoJill I made the not-so-difficult prediction that the West would win this game and Kobe would be the MVP with 37 points and a dunk on King James. Don’t trip though, LeBron had a triple double and Kevin Durant was a key factor in the west’s win!
The game itself, delivered TNT the most watched and highest ratings of an NBA All-Star Game since 2003 with 9.1 million total households viewing which equals a 5.2 rating.
