While players seize a midseason’s respite during the All-Star weekend, fans dribble, drive, and gawk through a schedule of more than 45 NBA All-Star Jam Session attractions that celebrate the game, its current stars, and its most luminous legends. Inside the Kids Zone, beginning b-ballers can throw down dunks or chuck up threes with friends. While roaming the 500,000-square-foot slice of hoops heaven, fans can glean tips and secure autographs from NBA and WNBA players. On Thursday, the jangling of seven championship rings signals the presence of exultant swingman Robert Horry, who has raised championship banners in Houston, Los Angeles, and San Antonio.
Fans on Friday may catch Magic guard Jameer Nelson signing autographs and conducting a skills and penmanship clinic at center court. Tomorrow’s key players take to the court to show off their fresh talent and family-pet-clearing jumps on Sunday afternoon, with a pair of Gatorade Invitational girls’ and boys’ finals unfolding as families romp and musicians pump up crowds throughout the convention center.
