2010 NBA All Star Game Preview

Tonight at 8:00 PM twenty-four of the best basketball player’s on this planet will all be in Dallas, Texas for the 2010 NBA All Star Game. The game will be aired on TNT live from Cowboy Stadium and all signs show that it should be a good one. Sure Kobe isn’t there, sure Iverson isn’t there (joke), but all of these guys playing at this great venue should prove to be entertaining.

As always you can expect this to be a high scoring contest with little or no defense. This game is for entertainment purposes only so you can expect some high flying dunks and spectacular plays. On paper the Eastern conference squad seems to have an advantage but in this game you never know what to expect.
