Go big or go home

On February 14th, 2010 the NBA All-Star game started to the joy of 108,713 in attendance. We sometimes have a typo in our articles (sorry about that) but this is not one of them. Just to make sure, 108,713 in attendance. You guessed it, the game was held in Dallas, Texas. The Cowboys stadium was the home of the biggest All-Star game ever held.

This was not the first All-Star game held in a football stadium. Yes, the previous one was also held in Texas. Specifically, San Antonio’s Alamodome, but the Alamodome is a multi-purpose venue that has a max of 39,500 attendance for basketball. That game was held in front of ‘’only’’ 36,037 people.

The weekend included the Celebrity Game, Rookie Challenge, Shooting Stars Competition, Skills Challenge, H-O-R-S-E, Slam Dunk Competition won by Nate Robinson and the Three-Point Shootout with Paul Pierce as the winner.

Oh yeah, there was also a basketball game, East won 141 – 139 and Dwayne Wade was MVP.
