Dirk won't be playing until tomorrow in the "big game," but there is plenty of other NBA action happening tonight...and who are we kidding, All-Star Saturday Night is where the real fun is at. ALL DAMIAN LILLARD EVERYTHING. Well, sort of.
The official All-Star Saturday night events kick off at 7:30 p.m. CST. Here's a brief rundown of what and who you'll be watching (and you know you're watching). Our own Tim Cato will be there live to tweet/recap the action. I will be watching on TV somewhere in New Orleans before attending what I'm told is "the Kevin Hart party," thanks to our Crown Royal partners.
Consider this as your open thread for comments, Kevin Hart jokes, and New Orleans tourism recommendations for me and Tim as you watch tonight's events.
