NBL's finest players set to strut their stuff in Adelaide


The National Basketball League's cream of the crop will be converging in Adelaide on Saturday, December 22nd for the first NBL All-Star Game since 2007.

The game will be a contest between North and South, with players from the Cairns Taipans, Townsville Crocodiles, Sydney Kings, and Wollongong Hawks eligible to be chosen for the North All-Stars, and players from the New Zealand Breakers, Melbourne Tigers, Perth Wildcats, and Adelaide 36ers eligible for the South All-Stars.

The starting fives will be determined by fan voting on nblallstars (voting closes December 3rd), with the benches to be chosen by the league.

All-Star games are renowned for being fun spectacles, with players and coaches often throwing defensive tactics out the window in favour of a free-flowing, up-tempo contest with plenty of dunks and exciting offensive highlights. That's until it gets serious down the stretch, of course.

There should also be plenty of highlights before the game even starts, with a Slam Dunk Competition, Three Point Shoot-Out, and Celebrity versus Legends Game all scheduled. Those will happen from midday before the main game tips off at 1.30pm.

Tickets are on sale now from Proticket, with prices starting at $27.50 for adults, $22 for concessions, $10 for children, and $55 for families.

If that's out of your price range or you're unable to attend for any other reason, the All-Star Game will be televised nationally from 2pm on Channel Ten.
