The world’s best ballers will be putting on a show this weekend in The Big Easy!

Sunday, February 16 will mark the culmination of NBA All-Star Weekend 2014, and the best event is certainly saved for last as the top players in the league will showcase their skills in the 63rd NBA All-Star Game.

Reigning two-time NBA Champion/Finals MVP LeBron James of the Miami Heat led all players with 1,416,419 votes, followed closely by 2014 shoe-in NBA MVP Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, who finished with 1,396,294 votes.

Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant was selected to his 16th overall All-Star Game, second all-time behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (19), however he won’t be able to play due to a leg injury and will be replaced by hometown star Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans.

This is Davis’ first All-Star selection. He’s been phenomenal throughout his sophomore campaign, averaging 20.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, and NBA-most 3.3 blocks per game, while shooting a 51.8 percent success rate from the field and 76.6 percent from the free-throw line. Davis was the #1 overall draft pick last year.

The All-Star Game will be exclusively televised on TNT from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. Coverage begins at 8:00 p.m. (ET).
