Kaman Added to All-Star Team

December 1, 2010 Sports Betting

Online sports betting for the NBA All-Star game is this weekend and a newcomer will be on the Western Conference roster.

Center Chris Kaman of the Los Angeles Clippers will be making his first appearance as he replaces injured Portland guard Brandon Roy.  There might be another replacement before all is said and done in offshore sports betting as Lakers’ guard Kobe Bryant is questionable.

Online sports betting had Kaman being the first Clippers All-Star selection since Elton Brand made the team in 2006.  Kaman has been a bright spot for the Clippers this offshore sports betting season.  Online sports betting stats have him averaging a career-high 20.2 points and 9 rebounds per game.  Kaman was happy to be on the team but still wasn’t thrilled since he was a replacement and not an original All-Star.  "Obviously, someone had to get hurt for me to make it on the team," said Kaman. "But I’m excited to be a part of it."

The NBA All-Star game takes place on Sunday from Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.  Offshore sports betting indicated that more than 90,000 are expected to be in attendance which would shatter the record for the most fans to ever watch a live basketball game in person.  Online sports betting on the game will be very close with the game near a pick.  The Western Conference probably would have been favored with Kobe playing but if he is out, look for the Eastern Conference to get some attention.  It also doesn’t help the West that Brandon Roy and Chris Paul, two of the best guards in the league are injured and won’t play.

Offshore sports betting had the Eastern Conference roster headlined by LeBron James.  He is competing with Denver’s Carmelo Anthony and Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant for the league scoring lead. The East also has Dwight Howard who leads the league in rebounding, Kevin Garnett, Dwyane Wade, Allen Iverson, Al Horford, Paul Pierce, Chris Bosh, Gerald Wallace, Joe Johnson, Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose. Online sports betting indicated that the East will be coached by Orlando’s Stan Van Gundy.

Online sports betting has the Western Conference with Kobe, Kaman, Carmelo Anthony, Tim Duncan, Steve Nash, Ama’re Stoudemire, Pau Gasol, Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki, Zach Randolph, Chauncey Billups and Deron Williams.  Online sports betting had the West being coached by Denver’s George Karl.
