The 2013 NBA All-Star Game tips off from Toyota Center in Houston on Sunday night, culminating a weekend's worth of fun events in the basketball world. All eyes from the Bay Area will be on Warriors star David Lee as he makes his first-ever All-Star appearance.
The game, which begins at 5 p.m. PT from downtown Houston, features the best of the best among the game's healthy players. Radio coverage of the game will be provided by ESPN Radio, plus SB Nation should have no shortage of quality content to peruse throughout the game.
Looking to win the game for the third time in three years, the West boasts a Los Angeles-dominated starting lineup of Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Dwight Howard. Lee joins an impressive group of reserves that includes LaMarcus Aldridge, Tony Parker, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Zach Randolph and Tim Duncan.
The East lineup, which includes LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett, is dominated by the Miami Heat. Rajon Rondo was supposed to start in place of Bosh, but he's out for the season with a torn ACL.
The reserves for the East are Tyson Chandler, Brook Lopez, Luol Deng, Paul George, Joakim Noah, Jrue Holiday and Kyrie Irving.
