Sparkle β€œE” was on the scene… for NBA AllStar ⭐️Weekend 2018 πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ€πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

All Star Weekend…was DEFINITELY *ALL THAT‼️*

It had all the pageantry… and perks it needed to be FIRST CLASS… ALL THE WAY!!!

It was dazzling…..

“Hoops” there it is….. Sporty… and oh so FABULOUS!!!!

It had flair… It was exciting… and fun!!!

with an air of mystery in some places…

I tell ya… the sponsors went ALL out creating events that were quite impressive!!! Here are some Highlights…

Some of the major sponsors included American Express…Kia……

Tissot…Verizon….Under Armour… Foot locker… Marriott… Gatorade… Rakuten… Ruffles….SAP…Kumho Tires… Kaiser Permanente

Jack Daniels… Nike…

Mountain Dew…Spalding…State Farm… Taco Bell…

There were tons of interactive things at parties… and hosted events…

I participated in an “Escape Room” challenge in the Kia All Star Loft…

I was assigned to the “Arena Room”

My team… had 10 minutes to solve NBA related puzzles…

( It was something else too… 🧐 but WE did it!!! )

We solved everything… and took home some pretty nice prizes & rewards…

And speaking of getting rewards… there were LOTS of fantastic give-always and SWAG!!! I got sooo much cool stuffβ€ΌοΈπŸ‘πŸ½

And the best photos…

I like this one… It’s pretty creative… According to the art presentation… Ballers played so hard… the wooden court floor exploded πŸ’₯and created this artsy backdrop!

Let’s see… I got cups, beverage containers, trading cards, refrigerator magnets, phone accessories, hats, foam fingers, light up sabers, T-shirts… and gift-bags…with a lot of other unique keepers…

Rewinding back to T-shirts… I thought it was SUPER COOL… to be able to choose your own style… design and color shirt… and have it made while you wait…(((FOR FREE!!!)))

Some of the choices included photos of popular ballers ⛹️ β›ΉπŸ½ faces… or likeness…

There were T-shirt captions: “Team Steph” or “Team LeBron” ….and ahhhh…”Old G of the night” -LOL!- πŸ˜† Yeah! You know I had to get it!

since the AllStar Event was held in California… You could also get A Palm Tree 🌴 Logo…

When it came to festivities…. Los Angeles definitely lived up to high standards!

There was no shortage of celebrities…. VIP’s and other star ⭐️ athletes…

So great to see Louuuu!!!!!

Lou Williams… that is… star player from the LA Clippers!!!

FYI… he’s-from around where I grew up in Georgia… He attended Gwinnett HighSchool… in Snellville GA… πŸ˜ƒ

It was also great to see Rick Fox!!!πŸ€—

Rick Fox… is a former 3 time champion… who played with the LA Lakers!!!

He is now starring in the role of “Darius Nash…” on the popular series.. “Greenleaf” πŸŒ±πŸƒ on the OWN network…

Oooo-ooh!!! Those three championships Rick Fox played in…included some of my ALL TIME DREAM Lakers team Players…of ALL TIME!!! πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’›

Rick Fox…Derek Fisher…Kobe Bryant… Robert Horry…Lamar Odom… Shaq…

Whoa!!!!! Speak of “Shaq…” he just made a mighty grand entrance!

“Shaq” is a very popular sportscaster… with the TNT Roadshow…

The Broadcast team did several Live Reports during the NBA AllStar game…. and special shows leading up to the event.

The NBA studio team includes Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal

When he arrived on set… just outside the Staples Center… Shaq greeted the crowd with his famous catch phrase:

“Cannn Youuu DIG IT‼️

Fa sho…. Shaq!!!! 🀨

Shaq-a-docious!!! πŸ˜œπŸ˜πŸ˜†

***** I can DIG IT!!!! ✊🏽****

Let’s get more into the ***MAIN EVENT***

The format for the 67th All-star game changed this year…. Yep! No more East -vs-West…

It was TEAM LeBron…-vs- TEAM Steph..

The powers that be… decided it was time to switch it up… and make things even more competitive.

With this NEW approach… captains LeBron

James and Stephen Curry had a chance to choose their own rosters…

And you know what… it turned out to be pretty cool… well.. let’s keep it real… it was A GREAT SUCCESS!!!

Personally… I think both LeBron & Steph are AWESOME!!! I couldn’t think of two better people to lead these squads…

They’ve got mad basketball skills… they are both respectable family men… and well liked human beings in general… sports aside…

They’re also VERY GENEROUS!!!!

The All star ⭐️ game ended with them securing A LOT of money… for deserving charities/programs serving young people! πŸ—£ Yay!!!! Steph & LeBron!!! #YouRock ‼️

Can I get a round of applause for these guysβ‰οΈπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸΏπŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ»

Both sides were going at it hard… wanting to WIN… but in the final moments…Team LeBron had a comeback…and Team LeBron beat Team Steph by three points! 148-145

I’m like…. Hold Up… πŸ–πŸ½ Wait a Minute…. πŸ›‘

Let me get a quick pix with the trophy’s!!! 🀩

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Cool!!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Congratulations Team LeBron!!!!

All hail King James!!! πŸ‘‘

LeBron James was named MVP… after his team won the 2018 NBA AllStar game…Sunday, February 18th… at Staples Center…in downtown LA..

This is his third career… All Star MVP VICTORY!!!!

As the excitement started to wind down… I walked out into the cool night air..

and looked up to see the Blimp hovering over LA…

It was going back and forth over Staples Center… and LA Live…I guess trying to capture the last bit of action… from one of the BEST NBA AllStar games in the record books!!!
