NBA All Star Game More About Partying, Less About The Game

By Chris Price

With the NBA and their entire entourage in Houston this weekend for the annual All Star Game, partying and socializing is more on the minds of those involved than the actual game.

What other event brings out all the celebrities, attending massive parties and social events, just to see who else is there and to be seen by others.

The actual fan, who loves basketball, cannot hope to get into the game. With tickets from scalpers going for upwards of $15,000, it is an event for the elite who have no more interest in the game than they do in standing in line to get a coke.

Watch it on television if you must, but you will get better action watching the Winter Olympics or Desperate Housewives.
