NBA All-Star coverage starts 90 minutes before the game tips off on TNT.

The NBA All-Star Game is always fun, and there are always a lot of people who watch it on television. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to play this game in the middle of a lockout-shortened season, but here we are at All-Star Weekend. Some All-Stars played intense, competitive games on Thursday, and many of them will resume competitive games on Tuesday.

Will that affect the pace and competitiveness of the game, relative to past All-Star games? It's possible, sure, but it's more likely that there's just even less defense than there usually is in All-Star games. This probably means even more showtime dunks, and that probably isn't a bad thing.

Here are the complete rosters for the game. There are six first-time participants, with one of those first timers, Andrew Bynum, getting in as a starter. TNT's pregame coverage starts at 6:00 p.m. ET.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, Feb. 26, 7:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Amway Center, Orlando, Florida

TV: TNT
