CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: This past weekend the annual circus of exhibitionism that is NBA All-Star Weekend came to Orlando, FL, bringing with it the usual A-Z list celebrities spilling out of luxury rental clown cars, stilt-walking treasure hunting groupies with shovels and metal detectors in hand and throngs of severely dehydrated star gazers that have all become synonymous with this 3-day baller binge.
What on the surface is intended to be a yearly mid-season showcase of the league's most electrifying talent has now effectively taken shape as a premiere "Theatre of the Nouveau Riche" upon whose stage Hip Hop's modern adaptation of "Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely" plays itself out - both literally AND figuratively.
But, I digress. Between all of the posturing of dope boys and girls that saved up @ least 6 months to make this pilgrimage to Playerdom, the credit card fraudsters swiping their way to $30,000 plus bottle service tabs @ Roxy, L.A.X. or Terrace 390 (NOTE: Pick a club! Any club!), walking-promo rappers and 20 lab crafted superwhores for every man, make no mistake, there was some SERIOUS fun going on! LOL. Here's a video recap of the festivities. Cheers!
