2013 NBA All-Star Saturday Night Experience

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

And we're off! We'll be bringing you thoughts, jokes, videos, and GIFs on the NBA All-Star Saturday Night events.

First off, Ellie Goulding performed. We don't know why, but she did. Some people seemed to know who she is.

The "captains" for the East vs. West competition (winner gets a bigger charity donation from a sponsor) were introduced, it's Dwyane Wade vs. Chris Paul. Fake fighting alert!

Look at who's just happy to be here. Terrence Ross, dunk contestant, Raptor, rookie.

SHOOTING STARS:

Nick Cannon's in the house! (Is that a thing, still, being in the house? Or Nick Cannon? Either one?)

Under "Troll so hard"

Russell Westbrook's motions after missing these were hilarious.

Hey, real close, there, Jeff Teague. Really close... to the worst performance in Skills Competition history.

Jeff Teague and Tony Parker fail miserably, Jrue Holiday does well, but Damian Lillard bosses his way to the win. Good look for the rook who struggled Friday night in the Rookies-Sophomores game.

Kobe with the Chris Paul joke for the win.

Your three-point contest lesson? Expect Kyrie.

Gerald Green is not screwing around.

Welcome back, props! James White with flight attendants.

Jeremy Evans dunked over Mark Eaton, who was sitting down, so there's that.

Kenneth Faried's first dunk was only OK.
