This past weekend New Orleans was a fabulous melting pot of hoops and HOT fashion as NBA players, cialis celebrities and public figures alike came together to partake in various Big Easy festivities surrounding the annual All-Star Weekend.

There was so much fashion throughout the weekend that I’ve dedicated the entire Courtside Chic to highlighting some of the best – and worst – looks of the weekend. Let’s get to it.

The festive weekend kicked off on Friday, drugstore February 13th on TNT with the Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, prostate  where comedian Kevin Hart was voted  the MVP for the third consecutive year. He insisted, however, that Arne Duncan take the award because of his impressive double-double performance. The former Chicago Public School CEO definitely schooled everyone on the court with his 20 points, 11 assists and 6 rebounds.

K. Hart was also spotted with Drake, sporting a Yves Saint Laurent top under a black leather jacket. The platinum selling rapper and Toronto Raptors brand ambassador opted for a laid-back look, wearing a Toronto Raptors T-Shirt and a snap-back hat.

Damian Lillard is on fire! Sure, he became the first player to ever compete in five events. I understand that this is a big deal, but that fabulous suit is an even bigger deal! The 2013 Rookie of the Year was seen sporting a ALBA Legacy custom three-piece suit that looked like it was tailored by the gods themselves.The only thing that I love ore than an athlete in a suit…is an athlete in a custom suit.

Lillard competed in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge on Friday, the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, Foot Locker 3-Point Contest and Sprite Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday and the All-Star Game on Sunday.

At the Sear’s Shooting Stars event on Saturday, Team Bosh beat Team Durant and won the event at NBA All-Star Weekend for the second consecutive year. Chris Bosh, along with NBA great Dominique Wilkins and WNBA star Swin Cash finished with a time of 31.4 seconds in the finals,while Team Durant finished with a lagging 43.6 seconds.

The Sears Shooting Stars champ was seen sporting camo pants and a navy blue jacket with a perfectly pressed white button-up shirt. How much do you want to bet that Mario Chalmers is hiding in that giant Birkin bag?

I was just waiting for Paul George to pull out a sword and use it to formulate the letter ‘Z’. The Pacers guard’s Zorro inspired ensemble was from Phenom 247 Clothing.

Anthony Davis’ Suit and Kicks

Anthony Davis was selected as a replacement for Kobe Bryant this weekend. I must say, he is really starting to step up from his ‘jeans and hoodie’ getup. The New Orleans forward/center styled a tan suit with ‘Olive’ Air Jordan 9 sneakers. By the way…stop making fun of his eye brows. They’re here to stay.

Kevin Durant in Phenom247

Now…you know that I cannot talk about NBA fashion without mentioning Kevin Durant. KD executes effortless style, even in fabulous suits. Here, he rocks two custom Phenom247 suits.

Lebron’s GQ Bash

Guess who is gracing the cover of March’s issue of GQ? It is none other than LeBron James. What better time to celebrate than All Star Weekend? Athletes and celebrities brought their impeccable style to the celebration. Is it me…or does everything seem to be coming up ‘LeBron?’

Even President Obama spoke wonders about James during a TNT interview with Charles Barkley.

“You know LeBron, I know LeBron,” Obama said. “When you’re standing next to him and then watch him close up, I’ve never seen someone that size, that fast, who can jump that high, who’s that strong…Mike [Jordan] will always be the guy for me just because that was a magical moment for the city and he was a champion. But now that he’s retired, LeBron…might be able to play at a high level for another seven, eight, 10 years…”  (SB Nation)

Don’t LeBron and Savannah James look like they belong on top of a wedding cake? LeBron rocked a unique turquoise, paisley jacket with black lapels and Savannah looks beautiful and chic in a flower-patterned lace top with long, flowing, black gown.

By the way…is that a baby bump that I’m seeing? When the James’ make their baby announcement…remember you heard it here first!

I still need to think of a cute combo-name for Dwyane and Gabby. Anyway, the recently engaged couple looked Fab in black with Gabby in an embellished black dress and Dwyane in a three-piece suit.

Ladies and gentlemen…Pharrell’s Hat! Oh, and Pharrell was there too. The hat and the hit-maker gave a wave-making, pre-game performance along with Snoop, Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs and Busta Rhymes.

Well, I had a fabulous time watching the All-Star events. I’m kind of bummed that it’s over. Nonetheless, I will be back next week to keep you fabulously posted with more NBA Style. Until then, Divas!
