The NBA Allstar weekend is over and the West beat out the East but before that happened, there was lots of fun for all including an Allstar Celebrity basketball game. The East prevailed on this one as Harvard forward Arne Duncan took Center Court and led the East to an easy 86-54 victory over the West. Kevin Hart home took MVP bragging rights with eight points and six assists. It was a great game and loads of fun!
