It was a star-studded event at TAO Chicago's Tip-Off Party as the NBA's Retired Players Association hosted an unforgettable evening on Feb 12.

The league's most sought after athletes gathered in the River North celebrity hot spot for a spread of the restaurant's signature items including Shanghai fried rice and kalbi sirloin.

All stars like Shawn Marion, Sam Perkins, Baron Davis, Jerome Williams and Artis Gilmore were greeted by flocks of fandom before posing for pics and reuniting with teammates and industry high-ups.

The star power continued on Feb. 13 as Ben Simmons and JaVale McGee joined Chicagoans (and several other NBA notables) in a set from DJ Spade inside the Pan-asian restaurant's nightclub.

The NBA All-Star weekend continues through Sunday, Feb. 16 from Chicago and TAO will sure to be the place for celeb spottings!
