Toyota Center Dolled Up for All Star Weekend - Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

This is a game thread for the 2013 NBA All Star Game, live from Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

I have mixed feelings when it comes to NBA All-Star weekend. I love the game itself, watching the best of the best goof off, and then, occasionally, get serious. Putting this many alpha dogs on a court is always interesting. No one really plays D, so you'll definitely get to see your favorites displaying their full arsenal of offensive weapons.

Here's the mixed part - I hate, hate, hate, that the league shuts down for a long weekend. The All-Star game is nice, but it doesn't count, and there won't be any real game action until Tuesday, leaving "All Star Monday" one of the bleakest days on the American sports calendar. I suppose there's college basketball and hockey, but while I follow a lot of sports, there's just no space in my mind for hockey. Nothing against it, but you can only care about so much ephemera.

Let's go West, and for the love of us, please don't overdo it, James Harden.

Well, there it is, the word count. Enjoy the game!
