Obviously, this event highlights the weekend. We will see the best players from the best teams going head to head in an exciting exhibition game.
When: Sunday, February 26 at 8 p.m. EDT
Where: Amway Center, Orlando, FL
Both teams are stacked with talent, but the West has some of the greatest players in the game and a number of NBA Finals winners.
Look for this game to be close until the end, with either Kobe or Dirk hitting a big shot to win the game.
NBA ALL-STAR SATURDAY NIGHT
Shooting Stars Competition
Who Will Win the Shooting Stars Competition?
Atlanta: Joe Johnson, Lindsey Harding, Steve Smith
Texas: Chandler Parsons, Sophia Young, Kenny Smith
Orlando: Jameer Nelson, Marie Ferdinand-Harris, Dennis Scott
New York: Landry Fields, Cappie Pondexter, Allan Houston
New York is going to take this. Landry, Allan and Cappie are just too good.
They are all great shooters and will not lose this competition.
Who Will Win the Three-Point Contest?
Anthony Morrow is an absolute marksman from long range. He's made 44.2 percent of his shots from deep over his career and found a niche in this league as a sniper.
Look for him to outshoot the competition easily in this contest.
Slam Dunk Contest
Chase Budinger will throw down the nastiest dunk, but Iman Shumpert will win with the new format.
Fans vote and there is only one round, plus Shump has Jeremy Lin on his side.
There's no way he loses unless he completely misses his jam.
RISING STARS CHALLENGE
Ron Adams, Steve Kerr, Shaquille O'Neal
Maurice Cheeks, Mike Fratello, Charles Barkley
It's going to be an epic game, but Team Chuck will win because of one man; John Wall.
He was spurned and selected after Kyrie Irving, Ricky Rubio and Jeremy Lin as a point guard.
Last year, he put up 22 assists in this game and absolutely dominated it, expect no less in this game.
