The big names in basketball bounced into North Carolina on Sunday for the 68th annual NBA All-Star game, though not all the action happened during the contest.   

Meek Mill, J. Cole and Anthony Hamilton brought their own skills to Charlotte’s Spectrum Center.   

Later, hometown hero J. Cole controled the halftime show with a medley that included "Middle Child," "ATM,”  "Love Yourz" and "No Role Modelz.” Cole also paid homage to the now-freed Atlanta rapper 21 Savage by hitting a few lines from his I Am > I Was song "A Lot."

For the record, Team LeBron outpaced Team Giannis in a high-scoring display, to the score of 178-164. Giannis “The Greek Freak” Antetokounmpo was the game high-scorer with 38 points in a losing effort. Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant was named All-Star Game MVP after pacing Team LeBron with 31 points.
