With NBA All-Star Weekend underway in New Orleans ... the STRIP CLUBS ARE ALREADY BLOWING UP ... with huge stars and famous strippers going absolutely bonkers!
We know ... ballers like Tim Hardaway and Warren Sapp hit up Rick's Saloon on Bourbon Street -- where one stripper pulled in $3,800 LAST NIGHT!!!
(Though we're told Warren was a little stingy with the $$$ ... which is good since he's still recovering from that whole bankruptcy thing)
Fun Fact -- the strip club scene is expected to be so insane this weekend, joints are IMPORTING dancers from other clubs. We're told Rick's shipped in some ladies from V-Live in Houston.
But these aren't your usual strippers ... we're told the BEST-OF-THE-BEST come to town for All-Star Weekend ... since, historically, people throw more cash around than at any other sports event.
And get this ... NBA players are even organizing their own strip events.
N.O. Pelicans star Tyreke Evans is hosting his own "Strip-A-Thon" packed with some of Atlanta's finest naked ladies ... and the flyer for the party reads "OVER 1 MILLION IN CASH IN THE BUILDING."
Take it away Lil Wayne ...
