If you are interested in how a diagram might look of the NBA All-Star Game, K-pop, and Kendall Jenner, then you have come to the right place.

The NBA All-Star Weekend is here. Some of the biggest stars in the league will meet in Cleveland to play for bragging rights and raise money for charities.

Several All-Stars were supported by social media campaigns to ensure their spot on the roster, before captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant picked their squad. Fans accounted for 50% of the final All-Star vote and were targeted by these posts.

Several players received a social media boost. The 25-year-old guard received a loving endorsement from his girlfriend, who he began dating in 2020. She asked her followers to vote for Booker.

A number of teams and superstars looked to improve their players chances of making the roster. Here are some of the best efforts.

Atlanta Hawks

Trae Young is a person.

Young was selected in the All-Star draft. Atlanta's creative campaign included a meme reference and parody of Who wants to be a Millionaire.

The NBA trade deadline happened on the same day as the All-Star draft, so Harden was a member of the 76ers. Captains James and Durant shared a laugh after the turn of events.


James Harden is the last pick in the All-Star draft and the two superstars have a laugh.

Charlotte Hornets

LaMelo Ball, Miles Bridges, and Terry Rozier.

Good Burger was a comedy film starring Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson. The Buzz City Burger portraits that the Hornets put on were influenced by the movie. Rozier is the only one who was alive when the film was released.

Golden State Warriors

Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins.

Golden State capitalized off of Curry's first game-winning buzzer-beater of his career. A high-IQ play.


— Golden State Warriors (@warriors) January 22, 2022

His first All-Star selection was due to the fifth-highest fan vote. He had a very vocal supporter in the form of a member of GOT7. The musician posted that he was very honored to be named as the Golden State Warriors Global Ambassador.

His endorsement of Wiggins was shared tens of thousands of times.

It's the best time to begin 2022! He is one of the best two-way players!
Wiggs deserves to be an All-Star, vote Andrew Wiggins into the 2022 NBA All-Star Game..and I can't wait to meet you all very soon#AndrewWiggins #NBAAllStar

Los Angeles Lakers

There is a king in the game of basketball, it's called King James.

Fred VanVleet.

The mascot for Toronto had a great interaction with Booker. The referees relocated Book to the sideline for a timeout after the Raptors caused a commotion behind the basket.

The team used the situation as fuel to boost VanVleet's vote total.
