The 2013 NBA All-Star Game tips off from Toyota Center in downtown Houston on Sunday night, giving fans an opportunity to see the league's best players convene on one court for 48 minutes. Even if there's little effort and even less defense, it's always exciting to watch so much talent in one place at one time.
The Western Conference, looking for its third straight win, will tip off with a Los Angeles-focused starting lineup of Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Dwight Howard. The reserves are LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, James Harden, David Lee, Tony Parker, Zach Randolph and Russell Westbrook.
The Eastern Conference starting lineup features LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony. Rajon Rondo was voted into the starting lineup but he's out for the season with a torn ACL. The East bench consists of Tyson Chandler, Luol Deng, Paul George, Jrue Holiday, Kyrie Irving, Brook Lopez and Joakim Noah.
