I hate these these but I'd be interested in how Nash deals with 4 forwards on the floor

Yup.

He's starting in Kobe's spot.

My prediction - the West will win by 10, at least. Maybe 140 - 130 West. Unless LeBron or Wade absolutely takes over I think the East will lose by 10+.

The West has a much better bench, even with the substitutions. What is the key to a good all-star team? Superstars and passing point guards. The East has one passing point guard - Rajon Rondo.

The West, even without Paul is loaded with Nash, Deron, Chauncey and Kidd!!! The East has the arguably the best three players in the competition right now - LeBron, Wade, and D12, but unfortunately those guys, especially LeBron and Wade, have a history of playing selfish me-first ball in all-star games.

The East has an aging Paul Pierce on its bench, David Lee (overrated stat getter), Al Horford (not the kind of guy who lights up an all-star game), a hobbled Derrick Rose who was only 75% sure he'd play, the artist formerly known as KG and finally Bosh, who should get a shitload of minutes because he's the East's best PF by far right now.

Meanwhile the West has not only a loaded roster of PG's but three of the best scorers in the game: Dirk (playing at home), Carmelo and Durant. They also have serious size with Gasol, Kaman and Duncan -- the East does not have a single 7 footer!

--------

To further complicate things for the East, aside from the 3 from Boston, the East has no teammates. The West has some fantastic pairs: Nash and Amare, Nash and Dirk, Kidd and Dirk, Chauncey and Carmelo.

Also, this just freaked me out: on TWO Wikipedia pages, Amare is now listed as being on the Cleveland Cavs!!!!! 2010 NBA All-Star Game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Apparently he's all but been traded to the Cavs for Zydrunas Ilgauskas and JJ Hickson. Holy fuck!!

All-Star games are almost never about defence - the players are too good and too offensively focused to care about making stops - except in the final few minutes of close games.

Was it announced that Dirks starting? If so I just shat myself. I have a first to score bet, Lebron vs Dirk, and I was hoping since Dirk comes off the bench itd be an easy W. Now I have to sweat it fuck.

If Dirk scores before Lebron I may not even watch the rest of the game I'll be that pissed. I hate you Kobe, and I hate whoever the coach is who subbed in Dirk. Sub in Durant instead fuck.
