This week marks the weekend for the NBA fans all over the world. A lot of attention will be put on the annual all-star game to be held at Nevada, Las Vegas where the likes of Miami’s Dwayne Wade, Cleveland’s LeBron James, Phoenix’ Steve Nash and Denver’s Carmelo Anthony will take center stage to delight their fans with moves and fantasy match-ups and teams.
Sidelights include that of the all-rookie challenge which was already won by the sophomores starring David Lee of the New York Knicks who was adjudged this years Most Valuable Player (MVP) for scoring 30 points on a perfect 14 of 14 field goal shooting.
Yet to come is that of the much awaited Slam Dunk competition where Lee’s teammate Nate Robinson will defend his crown against 4 other players headed by Gerald Green of the Boston Celtics. The 3-point shootout also features Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki who will defend his title against tough opposition as Washington’s Gilbert Arenas and teammate Jason Terry.
But it will surely be the All-star game that will be closely awaited as the entire world will watch their NBA idols grace the hardwood and put on a show for their millions of fans.
