NBA Alllows Their Stars to Shine

My newest NBCSports.com article takes a look at the statistics of some of the NBA's greatest All-Star Game performers. Here is the first paragraph:

The NBA All-Star Game showcases the most supremely talented players in the sport in a format that more closely resembles a "real" game than the All-Star Games in other sports do. The NFL Pro Bowl has a laundry list of alternate rules pertaining to permissible formations, in Major League Baseball's All-Star Game you may only get to see some players take one swing of the bat (if they pop up or ground out) and in the NHL's All-Star Game--well, viewers are still trying to find that one. The NBA All-Star Game is not played with the same ferocity as a playoff game--no All-Star Game is---but in recent years we have seen big comebacks and some strong defensive plays, which would not be the case if the players were just content to run up and down the court.
