In a midseason showcase for the NBA, the 2012 All-Star Game will feature 24 of the league's brightest stars. The five starters for the Eastern and Western Conference's teams were selected via fan voting while the All-Star reserves will be named by the coaches.

The 2012 All-Star Game will have a high bar to surpass the excitement of last year's game in Los Angeles that featured Kobe Bryant's MVP performance in front of his hometown crowd.

NBA All-Star 2012 in Orlando will bring together some of the most talented and passionate players in the league's history for a global celebration of the game. This is the second time Orlando has hosted the All-Star Game -- the city played host in 1992 when Magic Johnson came out of retirement to win the MVP in one of the most memorable moments in NBA history.
