So what does that have to do with Bell? He explained.
"We play Minnesota at the start of the second half, the All-Star Game is in Minnesota," said Bell, explaining that his wife and kids would be joining him in Minnesota for the entire week.
"So I keep telling my wife I'm not going to hang out with you guys because I'm going to make the All-Star team, because I don't want to go to the Mall of America for four straight days. They have an amusement park and it's cool. But I think after a day or two, it will be old news. So I'm trying to work really hard and do really well."
