The biggest stage of All-Star Weekend every year is the game itself on Sunday night, but the entire weekend is filled with events ranging from the NBA Cares All-Star Day of Service to Media Day to All-Star Saturday Night. This year, while Bradley Beal didn’t participate in the Thrre-Point Contest, he still had an event-filled weekend of autograph-signing, volunteer work, mixing it up with celebrities and playing basketball alongside some of the best basketball players on the planet, culminating in the 68th annual NBA All-Star Game.
With cameras seemingly everywhere on this star-studded weekend, here are some of the best pictures of Brad from his second All-Star appearance in Charlotte:
One of the most rewarding experiences each year during the All-Star Weekend festivities is the NBA Cares All-Star Day of Service, where the NBA’s biggest stars go out into the host city’s community to volunteer for a day to kick off the weekend. This year, Brad volunteered at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, where he and other volunteers packaged food for families in need in the Charlotte area.
All-Star Weekend is an event tailored for the fans of the game. The entire weekend is one huge celebration of the NBA and the league’s premier talent. Before the All-Star practice and media availability, Brad autographed some basketballs to commemorate the 2019 All-Star Weekend in Charlotte.
