NBA All-Star Weekend 2013 schedule: Everything you need to know about the star-studded event

Ronald Martinez

The NBA's stars are coming to Houston's Toyota Center, and All-Star weekend will have plenty of new action for fans to get excited about. Here's a complete schedule of events.

The NBA's marquee event will have some added flavor in 2013. The league's best, including LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant, will compete against one another in not only the weekend's main event on Sunday, but in an East vs. West skills competition on Saturday.

The action will begin on Friday, Feb. 15, with the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN and the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge to cap the night at 9 p.m. ET on TNT.

Saturday's action on Feb. 16 will feature four events that make up a large-scale competition between players from each conference. The winning conference will win money for a pre-determined charity and will be crowned at the end of the night. All of the action will be broadcast on TNT beginning at 8 p.m. ET.

The main event will cap the weekend on Sunday when the Eastern Conference takes on the Western Conference at 8 p.m. ET on TNT.
