The NBA's All-Star Weekend is capped off by the main event: the All-Star Game. The Eastern and Western All-Stars square off to play no defense and just dunk a whole bunch. The coverage starts at 6 PM Eastern on TNT and the game will tip off at about 7:30 PM Eastern, also on TNT.
The Western starters are Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, and Andrew Bynum.
The Eastern starters are Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, and Dwight Howard.
It's only a matter of time before Kyrie Irving joins these guys in the all star game. He already said that he enjoyed the weekend's festivities, but is setting the all star game as his goal for next season.
