Sprite Slam Dunk: Kendrick Lamar

One of the most anticipated events of 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend is the Sprite Slam Dunk contest. While the participants have not been announced yet, fans can look forward to Kendrick Lamar performing an exclusive medley of his hits.

Lamar has been involved in many notable collaborations with hip hop greats such as Dr. Dre, The Game, Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes and more. He’s won several BET awards, earned seven Grammy nominations and graced the stage at this year’s Grammy’s.

National Anthems: Gary Clark Jr. and Serena Ryder

Last year the U.S. National Anthem was performed by John Legend while the Canadian National Anthem was performed by Gloria Reuben.

At the 2014 NBA All-Star Game Gary Clark Jr. will have the honor of performing the U.S. National Anthem. Clark Jr. is a Grammy winning guitarist and songwriter, he recently won the 2014 Grammy for Best Traditional R&B performance for his song “Please Come Home”.

Serena Ryder will be performing the Canadian National Anthem at the 63rd NBA All-Star Game. Ryder has been all over the world touring with One Republic and Michael Franti. She’s also made appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Queen Latifah Show”


Last year, Alicia Keys headlined the NBA All-Star Game halftime performance. This year a huge collaborative effort from some of the biggest names in music will be on hand to entertain fans and players alike.

New Orleans native Trombone Shorty and his band Orleans Avenue will be joined by Janelle Monáe, Dr. John, Gary Clark Jr. and Earth, Wind and Fire! This star-studded line up is sure to bring the house down at halftime, with an infusion of old, new and some New Orleans flair!

Pre-Game: Pharrell Williams

Prior to the start of the game Pharrell Williams will welcome the 63rd NBA All-Star Game players to the court! Williams who is responsible for creating hits such as Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," Nelly's "Hot in Herre," Britney Spears' "I'm A Slave 4 U," and Justin Timberlake's "Like I Love You," will be on hand to give a show stopping (or rather, game starting) performance!
