NBA All-Star 2011: Los Angeles


Tamika Catchings led the Eastern Celebrity All-Stars to a win over Swin Cash's West squad, while Coco Miller and Team Atlanta took the title in the Haier Shooting Stars contest during NBA All-Star weekend in Los Angeles.

Off the court, current and legendary WNBA players also provided a hand to the Los Angeles community through a series of NBA Cares and Fit events.

WNBA players in attendance will now head back home or overseas to prepare for the league's 15th anniversary season, set to tip off on June 3.
