The YBF stars were out last night as they all took their courtside seats to check out the NBA All-Star competitions. Peep the pics of Rihanna, Kevin Hart, Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill, Keke Palmer, Common and more inside….
New York City is still overflowing with celebs as they hit up All-Star Weekend events and NY Fashion Week shows.
Last night, the Barclays Center was overflowing with YBF celebs for the State Farm All-Star Saturday Night event where the NBA and WNBA’s elite rookies, stars, legends and more battled it out in a few competitions.
The chosen few competed in four categories: The Degree Shooting Stars (Team Bosh won), Taco Bell Skills Challenge (Patrick Beverley), Foot Locker Three-Point Contest (Stephen Curry) and, the highlight of the night, the Sprite Slam Dunk contest (Zach LaVine).
Rihanna, a regular courtside NBA fan, hit the scene in a pink “Spoiled” jersey dress and black sneakers Chick really loves channeling the 90’s doesn’t she? Rih laughed it up courtside with her bestie Melissa Forde throughout the night.
Kevin Hart (in his favorite red leather jacket) came out after winning the MVP Award (for the fourth time) at the NBA All-Star Celebrity game Friday night.
Keke Palmer sexed up her look for last night’s festivities. The YBF chick has been making her All-Star Weekend rounds as she was tapped to kick-off the All-Star Celebrity game with the National Anthem. Check it HERE if you missed.
SELMA star and basketball lover Common, who hooped it up in the Celebrity game Friday, was in the mix.
WNBA star Skylar Diggins was her usual cute self on the carpet. On Friday, she helped the West team bring home the win in the All-Star Celebrity game, scoring 13 points.
“Blackish” star Anthony Anderson served as the host for the evening.
HUGE NY Knicks fan Spike Lee was on hand to watch the Slam Dunk contest.
NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson was in the buidling.
“ESPN First Take” anchor Stephen A. Smith posed it up on the carpet.
Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard was all smiles.
Washington Wizards point guard John Wall came out to see who would take his spot as the Taco Bell Skills Challenge winner. He won last year, but Houston Rockets baller Patrick Beverley reigns as this year’s champ.
Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are still hitting up events together. Lots of them. The twosome has pretty much been inseparable since going semi-public with their “relationship”. Neither of them have confirmed anything, but the pictures and their comments about them say it all:
They chopped it up with Steve Stoute and Michael Rapaport.
Also in the stands….
Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather was sitting next to Rihanna and her bestie Melissa. Looks like Floyd is getting in as much fun as he can before his mega-fight against Manny Pacquiao.
Kevin Hart chopped it up with Little League star Mo’Ne Davis after she embarrassed him during the Celebrity game Friday night. Chick did a quick spin move on Kevin that had everyone talking. Kev said, “Sitting CourtSide next to @monee_011 by far one of the coolest people on this planet!!!! She is going to be a joy to watch for years to come!!!!”
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry (who’s expecting baby #2 with wife Ayesha) proves he’s the best shooter in the NBA, taking home the three-point contest title.
And the highlight of the night….
19-year-old Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Zach LaVine put on a spectacular show with his fascinating slam dunks. Before one of his dunks, he had the Quad City DJ’s come out to perform “Space Jam”, as he rocked a #23 jersey, paying homage to Michael Jordan. And he KILLED it. Check it above.
Also, peep the rookie’s other dunks and him taking home the Slam Dunk championship title below:
