MVP Bieber shows off his pro-style game in defeat
LOS ANGELES -- It was arguably the most anticipated performance in celebrity game history. A few thousand people packed Center Court at All-Star Jam Session on Friday and many more watched at home to catch a glimpse of teenage hoops sensation Justin Bieber.
Bieber, who turns 17 next month, will be eligible for the 2013 NBA Draft. At this point, it's too early to project when or if he would be selected but, whatever happens, the 2011 BBVA All-Star Celebrity Game provided the first opportunity to see Bieber against a higher level of basketball competition.

NBA All-Star Events Give Houston Little To Root For
This year's NBA All-Star Game will take place this Sunday in Los Angeles, with a typical Saturday lineup that involves the Slam Dunk contest, the Three-Point Shootout, Shooting Stars, and the Skills Challenge. Friday night will yield the Celebrity Game and the Rookie/Sophomore Challenge.
And out of those three nights, a grand total of 0 current Rockets will be involved in the proceedings. Not a one. Yao Ming will probably wave to fans in a suit, sure, but no one will actively be participating. Part of this is just Daryl Morey's way: he values basketball skills first. For that reason, we have Shane Battier instead of Rudy Gay, and we have a hardworking team of role players instead of athletic youngsters that can really dazzle anyone. Well, except Terrence Williams, who just doesn't play for whatever reason. I don't mean that as a criticism, it's just a function of the type of teams the Rockets build. Kevin Martin and Luis Scola are efficient scorers, but they aren't going to throw down a jaw-dropping dunk.
