The 2018 NBA All-Star Game is about to tip off. Thankfully.
We just had to sit through one of the weirdest pre-game introductions that’s ever taken place at an All-Star Game. There was a weird sketch that took forever featuring Kevin Hart. There were some jokes that didn’t land.
Then, there was the national anthem. It was sung by Fergie.
The 42-year-old pop star had an…interesting rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. That’s understating it.
It was pretty weird, to be honest. Most of the people in the crowd seemed to agree.
That’s including at least one NBA All-Star. Draymond Green’s reaction to the performance is going viral.
TNT’s cameras showed Green with his mouth agape. He then realized everyone saw him and laughed.

That’s pretty great. Well played, Draymond.
Tipoff is about to happen. The game is on TNT. We’ve got Team LeBron against Team Steph. Hopefully we get a competitive contest.
