HOUSTON (AP) Many of the fathers in this year’s crop of All-Stars brought their children along as they moved through Saturday’s jam-packed schedule.
Several members of both teams had their sons and daughters with them as they met with the media before practice for Sunday night’s game.
“This is for him,” he said. “We do this for our kids and our family. Of course we enjoy it, but we want them to enjoy it. That’s why we bring them up here and try to do as much as possible with them. This is something that they’ll never forget.”
Kiyan, who wore a Knicks shirt and oversized baseball cap with the word “EAST” on it, was quiet the entire time Anthony spoke.
“He’s going to talk about it later on,” Anthony said, nudging the boy. “He’s shy right now. He loves basketball. He can name all these players and their stats, what they do.”
