LA NBA All-Star Events
Feb. 18–21. The ultimate battle for basketball bragging rights, the 60th NBA All-Star Game, returns Feb. 20 to L.A. for the fifth time and ushers in with it a host of NBA-related events. Special events include the Jam Session (Feb. 18–21), which invites fans to play the massive court and meet NBA players and legends, plus the All-Star Practice (Feb. 19) (all at L.A. Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa St., downtown, 213.741.1151) With this being such a popular event, it’s only fitting to have this occur in La. I’m betting this would be a great mid-day event session right after heading to the beach on perhaps, oh, I don’t know, some amazing segway tours Los Angeles fun; this is where you get excited. Other events include the FIT Run, Walk & Dribble 5K race, beginning and ending at Staples Center, in which participants race for coveted tickets to the game.
