Hip Hop Entertainment Lineup

At the same time, there will be other celebrity basketball games. In addition, the Slam Dunk Contest takes place at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse. NBA halftime show may be the highlight of entertainment. I am looking forward to watching Mary J Blige and Usher perform. However, included in the lineup of performers are, DJ Khaled, DJ Nice, Lil Wayne, Lil Baby, Machine Gun Kelly, Ludacris, Migos, Gunna, and Macy Gray.

Macy Gray will have the honor of singing “The National Anthem. For the first time, actor KeKe Palmer will be performing at NBA HBCU Classic, as reported by Billboard. She will be singing both the national anthem and the Black national anthem “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

Also, some of the entertainers will be recognizing players by highlighting the brightest. I personally believe this weekend is the highlight of the NBA season.

Especially, since we get to see some of the best talents on and off the court.

Short History: NBA All-Star Game

The NBA All-Star Games started on March 2, 1951. Starting lineup for each squad was selected by a combination of fan, player, media voting, and head coaches, as reported by NBA All-Star on Wiki. Interestingly enough, the President of the NBA at the time Maurice Podoloff and Haskell Cohen along with Boston Celtics owner Walter A. Brown brainstormed.

Fortunately, they were able to create something great for sports fans. In case you didn’t know, there was a huge college basketball point-shaving scandal. So, the league wanted to create a diversion. Now, the NBA All-Star weekend is celebrating its 71st.
