What NBA All-Stars got up to in Toronto this weekend (besides basketball)
NBA All-Star Weekend, a three-day extravaganza that’s a bit about basketball but more about celebrity shoulder-rubbing, just wrapped up in Toronto. When they weren’t dunking or sitting courtside, All-Star players and their celebrity fans mingled at parties, celebrated Valentine’s Day with their supportive spouses and, of course, hung out with Drake at Fring’s. Here’s how people like Snoop Dogg, Stephen Curry and Amber Rose killed time in the 6ix (besides complaining about the frigid forecast).
The actor spent a lot of time at Fring’s this weekend. First he partied with Drake at a welcome dinner hosted by Beats by Dre, and then he spent Valentine’s Day dinner there with wife, Eniko Parrish.
King James flaunted his fashion sense with a few cool-looking hats. (Here’s another one, which he may or may not have borrowed from Dwyane Wade.)
Gabrielle Union’s husband (and Miami Heat shooting guard) took some cute portraits with his wife, but also spent time fawning over Allen Iverson.
The incredible shooter prepared for the busy weekend with a relaxing helicopter ride over the city with wife, Ayesha Curry. Later, he was regaled with a (seemingly boring) story by rapper Fabolous while partying at Fring’s.
This year’s dunk contest winner also squeezed in some quality time with Fabolous, this time at Nest. (The rapper chilled out with some Pac Man later.)
The artist hosted an ultra-exclusive party on Saturday night at a mod Bridle Path mansion, temporarily dubbed the House Of Tings. He performed songs, played some ping-pong and engaged in deep conversations. And yes, there was a real owl.
In addition to numerous club appearances, Rose performed at Drake’s Bridle Path party, where she made friends with Toronto model Winnie Harlow.
On the verge of retirement, the star skipped some hyped-up parties and spent time with the matronly set (here he is with Lala Anthony’s mother).
DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry
The Raptors boys finished off the weekend looking extra sharp—a big step up from this look.
Marcus Stroman and Aaron Sanchez
The Jays’ players (yes, that’s Fabolous again) helped peddle some sneakers at the New Era flagship. Stroman also got into Sher Club (and was clearly very proud of the accomplishment).
The weekend’s MVP surrounded himself with equally successful people, like Allen Iverson and Spike Lee.
The Raptor repped his team with a very unoriginal picture in front of the Toronto sign.
At his GQ party at 2nd Floor Events, rapper Future courted the fashion crew in an edgy tux-and-sunglasses combo.
