While the NFL takes its annual hiatus, the NBA returned to New Orleans for its second installment of All Star weekend in the Big Easy.
Of course, Saints stars would not be left out of the festivities … in fact, the Benson’s threw an All Star party attended by athletes and celebrities alike.

Saints’ Mark Ingram and Cam Jordan signed autographs at the NBA’s Jam Session (check out that Fresh-Prince-esque high-top fade!).
The game itself saw the East defeat the West for the first time in three years, however New Orleans Pelican’s star Anthony Davis made quite an impression in front of the home crowd.
And by the end of the weekend, all who attended were singing the city’s praises.
New Orleans did a terrific job with the All Star Game. Proving itself, once again, the Big Game capital of America.
