When the 2012 NBA All-Star Game tips off on Sunday in Amway Center in Orlando, FL, the Eastern Conference All-Stars will be looking to avenge last year's 148-143 loss to the Western Conference All-Stars.

Here's a look at the players who will be representing the East.


Derrick Rose (Chicago Bulls) - The reigning NBA MVP is making his third-consecutive All-Star appearance. He was second in All-Star voting with 1,514,723 votes.

Dwayne Wade (Miami Heat) - Want to feel old? This is Wade's eighth All-Star appearance. He won the ASG MVP in 2010, the last time the East won.

LeBron James (Miami Heat) - This is also King James' eighth appearance in the All-Star game, however he's a two-time ASG MVP (2006, 2008).

Carmelo Anthony (New York Knicks) - This is Melo's fifth appearance in the ASG but the second time he'll be representing the East.

Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic) - The big man was the No, 1 vote-getter in the East this year (1,600,390). It's his sixth ASG and ironically, this Orlando one might be his last in a Magic uniform.


Chris Bosh (Miami Heat) - Bosh is competing in his 7th All-Star Game. The "other" Heat star is averaging 18.4 PPG this season.

Luol Deng (Chicago Bulls) - The Bulls big man is an All-Star for the first time in his seven-year career. He's averaging 15.9 PPG for Chicago this year.

Roy Hibbert (Indiana Pacers) - Hibbert is another first-time All-Star. He's averaging 13.8 PPG and 9.6 RPG this season.

Andre Iguodala (Philadelphia 76ers) - The Sixers small forward is in his first All-Star game this year. He was a member of the NBA All-Defensive Second Team last year.

Paul Pierce (Boston Celtics) - Pierce is the elder statesman of the Eastern squad. It's his 10th appearance (2002–2006, 2008–2012).

Rajon Rondo (Boston Celtics) - Rondo is appearing in his third ASG, though he made this year's squad as an alternate, replacing the injured Joe Johnson.

Deron Williams (New Jersey Nets) - Williams is making his third trip to the ASG. He's come a long way since winning the Skills Challenge in 2008.
