Wolves at All-Star parties

Lang at SLAM Online recounts seeing Garnett and "a crew that included Rashad McCants and Jawad Williams" at the Steve Nash/GQ Party on Saturday night.

Nash and KG each had VIP areas set aside for them, but neither of them hid in their areas, instead moving freely around the small club, shaking hands and just acting like regular people...

A DJ was playing some great old school hip-hop, from Brand Nubian to Poor Righteous Teachers, and before long KG could help himself: The Big Ticket staked out a spot right in front of the DJ table and started dancing, mouthing along to every lyric. An hour later, KG finally took a seat, drenched with sweat. Soon after, KG headed out, and by 1:30 we were gone, too.

Another post on SLAM Online gives an account of Paris Hilton's birthday bash at the Hard Rock this weekend.
Shannon Booher comments that "the NBA finally made itself present, albeit weakly, when Marko “Hollywood” Jaric came through, followed shortly by Sean Rooks, and then Alaa Abdelnaby!"

Garnett was listed as an "also there" at a party hosted by T-Mac and Diddy and featuring Busta Rhymes
on Friday.

KG on "hosting" All-Star parties:
"Every man takes care of himself," he said. "I don't really lend my name out there for events unless I'm going to throw one. I'm very funny about that -- it's my name at the end of the day. It's all I got. I've been here before. It's not my first time."

(Though the picture of Prince has nothing to do with this post except for the fact that he was at All-Star weekend, it still seemed relevant.)
