NBA All Star 2012 Starters and Information

The 2012 NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition basketball game that will be played on February 26, 2012 at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, home of the Orlando Magic. This game will be the 61st edition of the National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game and will be played during the 2011–12 NBA season. The Orlando Magic will serve as host. The Magic were awarded the All-Star Game in an announcement by commissioner David Stern on May 4, 2010. This will be the second time that Orlando had hosted the All-Star Game; the city had previously hosted the event in 1992 in the Orlando Arena, the Magic's previous home arena. It will also mark the first time an Eastern Conference city hosted an All-Star game since Atlanta, Georgia in 2003.

The NBA All-Star starters were announced, and that gives us a wealth of things to discuss—namely which squad has the advantage. This is about what battles would be settled at each position. Each team will be lopping up cupcakes to be dunked and playing absolutely no defense. If we want to truly know how these teams are measured, we have to do it ourselves.
