This past weekend the Active team was lucky enough to cover some of the NBA All-Star festivities in LA. We got the scoop on some court-side gossip pertaining to the plaid socks all the rookies have been spotted wearing, and we also made it to the BBVA All-Star Celebrity game to see the East beat the West 54-49.
With Magic Johnson’s coaching, Justin Bieber was voted the MVP over the likes of Scottie Pippen, Rick Fox, Lil’Romeo and Rob Kardashian. The teen idol, who will be eligible for the 2013 NBA draft, scored eight points despite being the youngest player in the game.
For the game, Bieber was on trend with the adidas Crazy 8 Basketball shoe in its bright yellow color-way. Other players on the court went for the same shocking yellow but in the more toned down style of the adidas adiPURE B-Ball style.
Swin Cash and Tamika Catchings represented the WNBA in style, with the Nike Hyperdunk 2010 “Think Pink” Basketball Shoes. While other players went for classic black, red and white versions.
