Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA All-Star Game returns to Houston for the first time since 2006 this weekend, giving local fans an opportunity to witness many of basketball's biggest stars participating on one stage.

It's also become much more than simple on exhibition game at this point. Rather, it's a full-fledged weekend of events, ranging from an exhibition game featuring celebrities such as Nick Cannon and Usain Bolt to the Skills Challenge, which includes Rockets star Jeremy Lin.

With everything that's going on throughout the weekend, let alone the flurry of trade rumors that can be expected with so many of the league's executives and scouts convening in one place, we're here to put every event onto one schedule. So, what's going on in Houston this weekend?
