A quick look at the East team's roster for Sunday night's NBA All-Star Game gives us a good idea of where the power lies in the conference. The Miami Heat are well-represented, with LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade all in Los Angeles for the game. The Boston Celtics put four players on the roster as Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo join Miami's big three on Sunday night. In total, only six teams are represented, with the Atlanta Hawks also sending more than one player.
Dwight Howard, Amare Stoudamire and Derrick Rose are the lone wolves on the East roster. With a Miami and Boston heavy roster, it'll be interesting to see how the East interacts with each other and if team-alliances prevail. Even the Hawks have their pair of players in Al Horford and Joe Johnson, giving the East the added advantage of familiarity.
It's all for the show, though, as the East and West hook up to put on a show, partaking in a game of "anything you can do I can do better" on Sunday night. Monster dunks, alley-oops and dazzling displays of passing are all expected as both sides battle it out with bragging rights at stake.
