2012 All-Star Game

  1. Kobe Bryant suffers nasal fracture, concussion, will see specialist

    Feb 27, 2012, 2:10 AM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    (Update: Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports also reported Bryant suffered a mild concussion as well as the broken nose. Two-for-one. Ouch.)   The Lakers announced Sunday night that Kobe Bryant suffered a nasal fracture in the third quarter of the 2012 NBA All-Star Game after a hard foul from Dwyane Wade. Bryant held his nose…

  2. Nicki Minaj, Pitbull, Ne-Yo your All-Star Game halftime performers

    Feb 16, 2012, 1:41 PM EDT

    Nicki Minaj

    Well, maybe Nicki Minaj can redeem her Grammys performance. She, and Pitbull with Ne-Yo are the lineup for the halftime entertainment at the All-Star Game Feb. 26 in Orlando, the league announced. You like the musical choice, and your dad will recognize Pitbull as that guy from the Bud Light commercial. It’s a bonding moment.…

  3. Gym Class Heroes, J. Cole headline pre All-Star Game concert

    Feb 15, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Gym Class Heroes

    Not very subtle, Orlando. The performers for a pre-NBA All-Star Game concert were leaked by the New York Daily News — later confirmed by the league — and we learn that one is Gym Class Heroes, who along with Neon Hitch will do their single “Get you’re a** back home.” This message is directed at…

  4. Chicago’s Tom Thibodeau will coach Eastern All-Stars

    Feb 15, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    This does not mean that Luol Deng is going to play 41 minutes of the All-Star Game. Probably. With their win Tuesday night, the Chicago Bulls will have the best record in the Eastern Conference on Feb. 15 at 24-7, which means Tom Thibodeau will coach the All-Star Game for his conference. Soctt Brooks of…

  5. Hawks Josh Smith ticked about All-Star Game snub

    Feb 13, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Josh Smith of the Atlanta  Hawks walks off the court against the Chicago Bulls during the second half of Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Josh Smith should have been an All-Star. He has stepped up his play with Al Horford out and is giving the Hawks 15.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.1 blocks per game, and the Hawks are your four seed in the East at 18-10. Hard to look the other way. But the reserve All-Star…

  6. OKC’s Scott Brooks to coach Western Conference All-Stars

    Feb 11, 2012, 10:54 AM EDT

    Scott Brooks

    Congratulations Scott Brooks, your team is so good you don’t get a vacation. While Gregg Popovich is sipping wine somewhere and Vinny Del Negro is… well, I don’t want to know what Del Negro is doing, Brooks will be coaching the Western Conference All-Stars in Orlando Feb. 26. The coach of the team with the…

  7. Who got snubbed? Some All-Star roster changes

    Feb 9, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The All-Star rosters are out. The NBA coaches — who select the All-Star reserves — went with the old guard, the tried and true, and the guys whose names we know. Whether or not their play merited it this year. They ignored younger players who deserved it this year. There should be changes. Here are…

  8. Dirk Nowitzki says he shouldn’t be an All-Star this year

    Feb 6, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The fans wanted to see Blake Griffin and Kevin Durant as the Western Conference All-Star starters. (Durant is a gimme, but we can debate later if Griffin should really start.) That leaves it to the coaches to pick the two or three forwards on the bench out of Pau Gasol, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Love, Paul…

  9. All-Star rookies vs. sophomores game may see changes

    john-wall-021811

    It’s one of the “highlights” — and we use the term loosely — of Friday night of All-Star weekend: NBA rookies taking on NBA sophomores (officially called the Rookie Challenge). There’s a lot of showboating and not a lot of defense — basically a less interesting version of the All-Star game itself. But this year…

  10. NBA All-Star starting teams pretty much set already

    All-star-nba-logo0103_rdax

    You can keep voting on the NBA All-Star Game players through the end of the month — you can vote every day between now and then, if your heart so desires. It’s not going to matter, the All-Star Game starters are pretty locked in. The NBA released the second round of All-Star balloting returns on…

  11. Dwight Howard leads everyone in first All-Star ballot returns

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    You didn’t love Dwight Howard as much as Derrick Rose and LeBron James when it came time to award the MVP last year (I know you didn’t get to vote on that, neither did I, but sentiment on this site ran heavy to Rose among commenters). But you love him now. Howard, the Magic’s center,…

  12. Orlando mayor: NBA has “moral obligation” to bring All-Star Game to city

    Nov 16, 2011, 10:04 AM EDT

    Amway-Center

    All-Star Weekend — from the rookie game to the dunk contest to the parties and, oh yea, the game — is at the top of the list of the things looking like it is toast because the NBA and its players can’t find a rational middle ground. Even if there is a condensed season, the…

  13. All-Star Game in Orlando may have December deadline

    Sep 24, 2011, 8:23 PM EDT

    Amway-Center

    Already, the deadline has passed for the first week of the preseason — the NBA has cancelled it. Without a handshake agreement in the next week, the rest of the preseason is at risk as well. Not long after that comes the start of the regular season. But what about the All-Star Game? In 1999,…
