Don't freak out. T.O.'s visit here in a couple weeks isn't to replace Roy Williams as a Dallas Cowboys' receiver, but rather to inject his unqiue persona into NBA All-Star Weekend.
Owens, a two-time Most Valuable Player of the All-Star Celebrity Game, will be back to further embarrass the wanna-be jocks and deejays of the music industry at this year's game in the Dallas Convention Center on Feb. 12 and on Feb. 14 after the actual All-Star Game will co-host a "Finale" bash at The Palladium with Dallas Maverick Josh Howard.
Tickets to most All-Star events are here. Best bet: NBA Jam Session, a basketball theme park in the Convention Center for $20.
The best party?
Well, I hear a rumor that Mavs owner Mark Cuban is throwing a bash at his mansion that will feature as the musical entertainment none other than AC/DC.
If you can't sneak into that suaree, Sean P. Diddy Puff Daddy Diddy Combs will host a shindig at Sting Ultra Lounge on Feb. 13.
