According to a high-ranking Las Vegas gaming executive, the combination of the NBA All-Star game and the Chinese New Year will make this weekend "three times as big as anything Las Vegas has ever seen." That's saying something considering how big New Years, Super Bowl and March Madness events are. And the good news for golfers is that golf is right in the middle of much of the celebration, with an event hosted by Boston Celtic Paul Pierce at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort just one of several All Star golf events.
