The three male music stars are the latest additions to NBA All-Star Weekend, which will feature performances by Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar and a New Orleans-inspired halftime show with Earth, Wind & Fire; Janelle Monae; Dr. John; Gary Clark Jr. and Trombone Shorty with Orleans Avenue. Williams will perform during the player introductions, while Lamar will play Saturday night prior to Sprite Slam Dunk.
