With the NBA All-Star Break only a little under two weeks away, it's time to take a look at the schedule of events that take place over this four day weekend. While other sports mainly just give you a game then a return to action, the NBA stretches their mid-season break to include a variety of popular events to draw in the fans. Below is a complete list of those events along with the 2012 All-Star game rosters.
