All-Star Weekend Preview – Rookies vs. Sophomores GameThe Rookies vs. Sophomores Game has long been a showcase for the NBA’s future stars. This year’s group of first and second year players features many promising young talents. Some of the top players on the Rookie Team are Andrea Bargnani of the Toronto Raptors and the Charlotte Bobcats' Adam Morrison. The Sophomores will be led by last year’s Rookie of the Year, Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets.
All-Star Weekend Preview – Dunk ContestIn last year’s contest, Nate Robinson proved that height means nothing when it comes to dunking. He jumped over former Slam Dunk Champ, Spud Webb, last year. This year, who knows what he’ll do?! Nate better bring his A game though, because he has fellow high-flyers like Dwight Howard and the Celtic’s Gerald Green as his competition.
All-Star Weekend Preview – 3-Point ShootoutSo, a 5’9” Robinson wins the dunk contest, and 7’1” Dirk Nowitzki wins the 3-point shootout? What is the world coming to? Nowitzki appears to be the fan favorite to win his second straight title this year, but he has a couple of long-distance shooters that will make sure th win won’t be easy. Gilbert Arenas and his Dirk's teammate Jason Terry are bound to give Dirk a run for him money. Also watch out for Damon Jones of the Cavaliers – he won’t win it, but he is a comedian in training, so watch out for his antics.
All-Star Weekend Preview – All-Star GameAmongst all the parties and hoopla surrounding the weekend, you almost forget there's an actual game! The usual stars like Tracy McGrady, Shaquille O’Neal, Dwayne Wade and Lebron James will be playing. A lot of first time All-Stars like Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony and Caron Butler will also show why they were selected.
