We asked celebrities hangin' in Houston for All-Star Weekend who they would play one-on-one and what the final score would be if they had the opportunity to play to 11. Here's what we heard:

Nelly
"I'd probably try to play Yao full court cause I could probably beat him down the court, that's the only chance I got. I'm not going to beat A.I., and Vince is gonna jump and it's not a good look. So, I would take the biggest guy out there, which is probably Yao, because I know I would outrun him. But, we would have to play full court -- we can't play half. I'd beat him 11-0 if we played full court and it was winner's ball."
Joe Murphy, NBAE
Scott Cuningham, NBAE
Ludacris
"I think I'd play Kobe because, even if I get beat and stomped to death, at least I can learn a couple of things while I'm playing him. (laughing) It would probably be 11 to 5, Kobe, to be honest with you. I could get five good points in there."
Bow Wow
"Shaq. If we were playing to 11 it would probably be 11 to 0, Shaq. You want to pick the best player out there, that's how you make yourself better, that's how you better yourself."

"Kobe. I'd play Kobe. The score would be 10-11. He would win; He's the pro. (laughing)"
Brandon Routh (Lead in upcoming 'Superman' movie)
"I'd take Shaq just to say I played Shaq. Maybe I'd score a bucket -- 11-1, Shaq."

"I would pick Kobe. It would be 11-0, Kobe wins. I'd pick Kobe because he is the best player in the league right now and I got to play against the best. I can't play against suckers, I got to play against the best. So, if Kobe is the best right now, guess who's going at him? Even if he does beat me 11-0, guess who went at him though?"
