Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

A look at the schedule for the 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend.

The NBA has descended upon New Orleans for the 2014 All-Star Weekend, which celebration exhibits the league's top players in a series of events Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Here's a look at the schedule. All times listed are Eastern.

Friday

At 7 PM, the NBA All-Star Celebrity game tips off on ESPN. ESPN analyst Bill Simmons will coach against Jalen Rose, a former NBA All-Star, in a game featuring the likes of comedian and actor Kevin Hart; U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan; NBA Inside Stuff host Kristen Ledlow; and actor Michael B. Jordan.

The Rising Stars Challenge, formerly known as the Rookie/Sophomore Game, gets underway on TNT at 9 PM Eastern. New Orleans Pelicans All-Star big man Anthony Davis leads Team Webber against Portland Trail Blazers point guard and reigning Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard of Team Hill.

Orlando Magic fans will certainly have their eyes on this game, as Magic rookie Victor Oladipo will play for Team Webber.

Saturday

The NBA D-League All-Star Game tips off at 3 PM Eastern on NBA TV. Among the participants are former Magic training-camp invitees Manny Harris and DeAndre Liggins. Those two team up on the Futures squad, which takes on the Othyus Jeffers-led Prospects team.

Arguably the highlight of every All-Star Weekend, All-Star Saturday Night begins at 8:30 PM Eastern on TNT. The night features, in order, the Shooting Stars competition, the Skills Challenge, Three-Point Shootout, and Slam Dunk contest.

Orlando has two representatives on All-Star Saturday: Oladipo will partake in the Skills Challenge, becoming the first Magic player to ever do so, while Arron Afflalo will try to become the first Orlando player to ever win the Three-Point Contest.

Sunday

TNT will air the All-Star Game itself at 8 PM Eastern.
