    Every year, the greatest NBA players come together in a fun game against each other. Once every year, the All Stars of the Eastern Conference play against the All Stars of the Western Conference. Since 2000, the West has won all but three of the All-Star Games. This year they are playing at the US Airways Center, the home of the Phoenix Suns. The home advantage may or may not help the Western Conference in winning the game. Getting NBA All-Star Game tickets will let you see some of the best players in the game today. For example, the East has some very strong players this year. Any team whose starters are Allen Iverson, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard are going to be very impressive. Then again, the West’s starters include Kobe Bryant, Amare Stoudemire, Tim Duncan and Yao Ming so we can expect a hard-fought game. In addition to the main game, All Star weekend this year also includes the Slam Dunk Contest and the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge. Between the national anthem sung by the New Kids on the Block, halftime show by John Legend, and an amazing game, you will have a great time in Phoenix on February 15th.
