What a Mess…
So far, NBA All-Star Weekend was uneventful. Until about 30 minutes before the game… then it really got started. Twitter had a field day.
It starts off with a Pre-Game show that featured Kevin Hart that seemed never-ending and it was a disgusting.
damn this Kevin Hart intro might be the first L Philly has taken since the Super Bowl.

Whoever created this pre-game show might want to get their LinkedIn updated.

If you didn’t watch the intro of the NBA All Star Game, you either missed the greatest or most embarrassing 30 minutes of tv of all time.
Not sure which.

Then Kevin Hart went right over to ruin the player introductions. Knicks fans were not happy that Kristaps Porzingis wasn’t even mentioned in the introduction.
No Kristaps Porzingis mention? I know he isn’t there, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t omit him… #NBAAllStar

It just kept getting worse.

Kevin Hart went after Damian Lillard’s rap career and Dame wasn’t having it:
Former NBA Star and TNT host Brent Barry took to twitter to express some frustration with the ‘roast-like’ nature of the NBA introductions.
When I go to a comedian’s show I am more than sure I could take some good natured ribbing but if comedian comes to an all star game to host, it would be best to respect the work, the why and the what an all star player has put in to achieving the right to be on that stage

Then the National Anthem started, and we will most definitely remember it.
"Damn right it was different. I needed a cigarette after that" – Charles Barkley on Fergie's national anthem 😂😂😂
