Sports betting had Cleveland’s LeBron James leading the starters for the NBA All Star game which will be played on February 14th at Cowboys Stadium.
LeBron was the leading vote-getter and that is not an online sports betting surprise since he is one of the game’s superstars.
Sports betting had a major surprise in the All-Star starters as Allen Iverson was selected to start for the East. In the West, Steve Nash got enough votes to claim the second starting guard spot which meant that Tracy McGrady didn’t make it. It is bad enough to have Iverson getting a starting spot but McGrady has barely seen the court this online sports betting year so having him as a starter would have been a mockery.
The other three starters joining LeBron and Iverson are Orlando’s Dwight Howard, Miami’s Dwyane Wade and Boston’s Kevin Garnett. "The fans still love and see what I do every night and they appreciate it, and I appreciate them for electing me as an All-Star starter," James said, “It’s still special." LeBron will be playing in his 6th All-Star game. Garnett will be playing in his 13th All-Star game as sports betting had it, the most of any East starter. Iverson will be in his 11th, Wade his 6th and Howard his 4th.
Sports betting had the Western Conference team being led by Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers. Other starters in addition to Nash as online sports betting noted are Amare Stoudemire of the Phoenix Suns, Denver’s Carmelo Anthony and San Antonio’s Tim Duncan. Bryant and Duncan will be making their 12th All-Star game appearances. Nash is in his 7th game as sports betting indicated, Stoudemire his 5th and Anthony his third. The voting process for the All-Star game has come under a lot of criticism. The voting in of Iverson is online sports betting embarrassment and McGrady getting in would have been a disaster. Iverson has only played in 19 games this sports betting season but at least he is averaging 14.8 points per game with Philadelphia. "I just want to thank everybody for their support this season and it’s an honor that the fans have voted me into the All-Star Game as a starter," Iverson said.
With the All-Star game being held at Cowboys Stadium, a huge crowd is expected. In fact, sports betting had more than 80,000 expected which would make it the largest crowd ever to see a basketball game.
