The NBA All-Star game tips off at 8 p.m. ET and features the brightest stars in professional basketball. Chris Paul will look to defend his All-Star game Most Valuable Player trophy after dominating the contest in Houston last season, though Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will start at point guard after being voted into the starting lineup in the fan vote.
Anthony Davis will play in his first All-Star game after being selected as a fill-in player for injured Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant. Davis has had a phenomenal season in his second year in the NBA and will have the honor of playing in his first All-Star game in New Orleans.
Other first-time All-Stars include John Wall, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard and DeMar DeRozan. Of course, long-time All-Stars will also play, such as Dirk Nowitzki. This will be All-Star game no. 12 for Nowitzki, who was not selected for the game last season for the first time in over a decade.
Overall, it should be a fun showing of the NBA's biggest and brightest stars. Here's how you can watch the game online.
