Before the All Stars took the court at Key Arena in Seattle, fans had the chance to see some of their favorites walk the orange carpet.
The gathering took place near the Space Needle at Seattle Center the day before the All Star Game. It occurred sometime around 6 p.m. Seattle time and was well attended by fans and media.
Needless to say, those that were on the orange carpet were dressed to the nines for the 206. Among those that were present were Skylar Diggins Smith (pictured above), Candace Parker……and Sue Bird, essentially the grand marshal for Seattle’s All Star festivities and who also made a bit of news during All Star week by disclosing to ESPNW’s Mechelle Voepel that she is dating soccer star Megan Rapinoe.
