NBA All Star Game 2011 Results: West All-Star Team Emerged as Winner on NBA All-Star Game 2011- The 2011 NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition basketball game that will be played on February 20, 2011 at Staples Center in Los Angeles,California, home of the Los Angeles Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers. This game will be the 60th edition of the National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game and will be played during the 2010–11 NBA season. The Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers will serve as host. The Clippers and Lakers were both awarded the All-Star Game in an announcement by commissioner David Stern on June 9, 2009.
This will be the second time that the Staples Center had hosted the All-Star Game; the arena had previously hosted the event in 2004. This will be the fifth time that Los Angeles had hosted the All-Star Game; before Staples Center opened in 1999, the city had previously hosted the event in 1963, 1972, and 1983.Rihanna and Kanye West have been named the halftime performers, while Keri Hilson and Bruno Mars will be the entertainment for pre-show festivities.
The coaches for the All-Star Game are the head coaches of the teams with the best winning percentage in each conference through the games of February 6, two weeks before the All-Star Game. However, an NBA rule also prohibits a coach from being selected for consecutive All-Star Games, even if his team again holds the conference’s best record. Because George Karl and Stan Van Gundy coached in the 2010 All-Star Game, they were not eligible for selection.
The coach for the Western Conference team is San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. This is the second time Popovich was selected to be an All-Star coach, after previous selections in 2005. The coach for the Eastern Conference team is Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers. This is the second time Rivers was selected to be an All-Star coach, after previously being selected in 2008.
There are no representatives from the Indiana Pacers in the 2011 NBA All-Star Game, which will be played today at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. However, it is possible that some future Pacers will be on display at the glorified exhibition game, especially if some of the trade scenarios we proposed last week come true.
