Two things are for sure in the NBA All-Star game this Sunday. The All-Star game will feature a ton of scoring. Second, the All-Star game will see numerous dunks.

The NBA All-Star game typically features little defense and a ton of scoring. Since the ABA-NBA merger, both teams have scored more than 110 points in each game. A total of 28 of the 35 games since the merger have seen the winning team score 130 or more points.

Anyway, the All-Star game is showtime. Players forsake fundamentals and play above the rim. Frequently, players will go off the dribble or run across court for an uncontested dunk.

Fans will be watching to see Kobe Bryant and LeBron James slam it home. Also, fans will be watching to see if their favorite player or a player from their favorite team will drive in a dunk.

Having said that, it'll be interesting to see who will dunk the most and who will dunk first. To answer those questions, one will look at the players who may be most likely to play a high number of minutes and demand the ball.
