The NBA All-Star Game carries a lot of hype and a lot of over-the-top events over the course of its weekend festivities, but the game itself manages to be an impressive display of talent each and every year. On Sunday night, the 62nd iteration of the All-Star Game will take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
In the event, the Eastern Conference All-Stars will take on the Western Conference All-Stars, as it is every year. The Western Conference will feature Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin at forward, Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant in the backcourt, and Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard as the big man.
On the Eastern side, things are a bit unclear for now. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James of the Miami Heat will make the start for sure, as will Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics. Then you have Carmelo Anthony, who may or may not play.
Full reserve rosters are below:
Eastern Conference: Chris Bosh (Miami Heat), Tyson Chandler (New York Knicks), Luol Deng (Chicago Bulls), Paul George (Indiana Pacers), Jrue Holiday (Philadelphia 76ers), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers), Brook Lopez (Brooklyn Nets) and Joakim Noah (Bulls).
Western Conference: LaMarcus Aldridge (Portland Trail Blazers), Tim Duncan (San Antonio Spurs), James Harden (Houston Rockets), David Lee (Golden State Warriors), Tony Parker (Spurs), Zach Randolph (Memphis Grizzlies) and Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder).
Tip-off for the game is set for 8:30 p.m. ET, and you can tune in to watch it on TNT or listen in on ESPN Radio. The game will be preceded by a pre-game concert from Ludacris, B.o.B. and Ke$ha.
