NBA All-Star weekend is ready to tip off on Friday night in New Orleans with three days of activities to celebrate all of the elite hoops talent in the league. The Pacers will have players involved on all three nights, so it only makes sense to lay out the schedule for the weekend.
For quick reference, Myles Turner will be active on Friday playing in the Rising Stars challenge. Glenn Robinson III steps into the spotlight on Saturday for the Slam Dunk contest and then Paul George shows up on the big stage on Sunday evening for the main event — the 2017 NBA All-Star Game!
