The Eastern Conference starters are LeBron James, Kevin Garnett, Dwight Howard, Jason Kidd and Dwyane Wade. NBA All Star game action will get underway on Sunday, February 17th at the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Some of the better players in the 2008 NBA All Star game will start the game on the bench. Two of the better players in the Western Conference, Chris Paul and Brandon Roy are reserves. Other reserves on the Western Conference are Carlos Boozer, Amare Stoudemire, Dirk Nowitzki and David West. Looking at NBA All Star game betting we see that the Western Conference is loaded with talent.
NBA All Star game reserves from the Eastern Conference are Chauncey Billups, Richard Hamilton, Chris Bosh, Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, Joe Johnson and Paul Pierce. The NBA All Star game has four international players, Nash, Nowitzki, Duncan and Yao. The Eastern Conference coach is Boston’s Doc Rivers. The Western Conference coach is New Orleans’ Byron Scott. The Eastern Conference could have more talent than in previous years but the NBA All Star game betting money will probably be wagered on the West. Matching up the starters in the NBA All Star game there might be a slight advantage for the East but the reserves on the West are better than those on the East and they may end up deciding the game.
The 2008 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 17, will be televised on TNT beginning at 8 pm Eastern. NBA All Star Game betting will probably see the Western Conference as a small favorite with a total in the 250’s. Also on the betting board will be the Rookie Challenge, the Slam Dunk contest and the three point shooting contest. Don’t forget to look at the odds for those events as well.
