The NBA Allstars are bringing their game .... to New Orleans that is. It's a weekend full of activities and hype. Billboards like this have sprung up all over the CBD (Central Business District) and there are lot of the building-wrapping graphics -- as much as 20 stories tall -- making it hard not to be aware of the big event. My favorite part of the weekend is the Slam Dunk contest -- I have been practicing up my dunks in case on the stars twists his ankle and they need a substitute.
If you can make the weekend here, check out all the activites at the web site
