Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Spotted Courtside at NBA All-Star Game
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West brought their star power to the 69th NBA All-Star Game.
The couple were spotted courtside at the game at Chicago's United Center, where they were seated next to J. Cole. The outing came just hours after West brought a special Sunday Service to his hometown -- and a day after the rapper surprised his wife with a tropical getaway for Valentine's Day.
At Sunday's All-Star Game, Kardashian looked cozy in a salmon-colored puffer jacket and matching pants, while her husband kept things cool with a pair of shades, a black jacket and jeans.

The game kicked off with a tribute to Kobe Bryant, performed by Jennifer Hudson. Chaka Khan sang the U.S. national anthem ahead of the game, while Tenille Arts performed the Canadian national anthem. Chance the Rapper will take the stage at halftime alongside Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled and Quavo.
West paid tribute to Bryant with a special Sunday Service shortly after the NBA star's tragic death on Jan. 26. "I was driving home/They was leaving your jersey on the freeway, and I just broke down, broke down, broke down," he sang in videos from the event.
"Kobe, We love you brother We're praying for your family and appreciate the life you've lived and all the inspiration you gave," West wrote on Twitter.

James reflected on Bryant's death while speaking with reporters at the NBA All-Star Practice and Media Day in Chicago on Saturday.
"We know that he's watching over us and, you know, it's our responsibility to represent the purple and gold. Not only for him, but for all the greats, everybody who's ever come to the Lake show," he said. "I don't want to -- I don't really want to sit up here and talk about it too much. It's a very sensitive subject, but he's with us every day."
The NBA All-Star game will air Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. ET on TNT.RELATED CONTENT: LeBron James Says Kobe Bryant Is 'With Us Every Day' Anthony Davis Says the Lakers Are Going to Do Their Best to Honor Kobe Bryant's Legacy (Exclusive) Kanye West Puts on Emotional Midnight Service as a Tribute to Kobe Bryant
