The All-Star Game will fittingly be the grand finale of the 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend. This will be the 66th edition of the All-Star Game, and the Eastern Conference holds a commanding 37-28 lead over the Western Conference in the series.
This will be the third All-Star Game ever held in New Orleans, which bodes extremely well for the Eastern Conference and Cleveland Cavaliers. In 2008, the East prevailed over the West 134-128 with Cleveland’s LeBron James being named the MVP. And in 2014, the East won 163-155, and Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving was named the MVP.
The Western Conference has won the last two All-Star Games, and Russell Westbrook has been named the MVP in both of their victories. The most interesting storyline in this year’s All-Star Game is definitely how Westbrook and Kevin Durant will interact on the court after Durant left OKC for Golden State this past off-season. I’m personally hoping that it’s more awkward than a million Tinder dates.
Now that you have some background information on the All-Star Game, let’s break down all of the different ways you can keep up with the action.
