Basketball's biggest stars have made their way north to Toronto for NBA All-Star Weekend. While players like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Steph Curry are perhaps making the most headlines, other stars, like the Indiana Fever's Natalie Achonwa, are also taking the city by storm.
A Toronto-area native, the 23-year-old member of Team Canada was thrilled to return home for the all the festivities. Initially slated to participate in the Celebrity Game, Achonwa ultimately opted out because of a recurring knee injury but still is partaking in a weekend chock full of commitments and appearances.
Achonwa graciously allowed me to follow her around on Friday, as she went from one event to another, to document just what it's like to be a star at NBA All-Star Weekend. You'll see very quickly it's not as easy or glamorous as you might think.
