2010 NBA All-Star Game Preview

The 2010 NBA All-Star game will be held in the Cowboys Stadium, on Sunday February 14, 2010. Close to 80,000 fans are expected to witness the largest crowd ever to watch a basketball game. Kobe Bryant and Lebron James are  the most popular All-Stars for the 2010 game in Arlington, Texas. Blake Griffin is hoping to play in his first All-Star game as a rookie for the Los Angeles Clippers, while Kobe Bryant is allegedly the Western Conference starting guard for the 12th time in his career. Carmelo Anthony, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Amare Stoudemire and Andrew Bynum are all popular Western Conference picks. Allen Iverson now back with the Philadelphia 76ers will most likely play in the All-Star game. Top stars Kevin Garnett, Dwayne Wade, and Lebron James will be leading the way for the Eastern Conference.

As usual, the Eastern and Western Conference biggest stars are assured a spot in the starting lineup, but as for Jose Calderon, Mike Bibby, Hedo Turkoglu, Rashard Lewis, Rasheed Wallace, Manu Ginobili, Brandon Roy, Ron Artest and other contributors, a spot on the bench might already be taken.

A fair prediction of the lineup’s for both conferences  if the voting ended today:

Western Conference: Steve Nash/ Kobe Bryant/ Carmelo Anthony/ Dirk Nowitzki/ Amare Stoudemire

Eastern Conference: Allen Iverson/ Dwayne Wade/ Lebron James/ Kevin Garnett/ Dwight Howard

This year’s All Star game will be watched in over 200 countries on TNT and listened to on ESPN Radio. It’s up to the fans to vote for their favorite players and determine who will play in this year’s competition. The NBA All-Star game has always been an exciting contest, and this year it just got better.
