The 2012 Eastern Conference NBA All-Star Game starters.

words // Luis Sanchez

The Eastern Conference was well represented tonight in the NBA's 61st annual NBA All-Star Game with a team that included everyone from LeBron James to Carmelo Anthony.

Although they came up short in the end, the Eastern Conference All-Stars did put on an impressive performance in the 152-149 loss. Heat guard and Jordan Brand representer Dwyane Wade became the third player all-time to record an All-Star Game triple double, recording 24 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds to join teammate LeBron James and Michael Jordan in the All-Star Game record books.

LeBron James also put together a historic performance for the Eastern Conference All-Stars, scoring 36 points thanks to an All-Star record-setting six three pointers. Lone Knicks' All-Star Carmelo Anthony put in 19 points for the East, while top-vote getter Dwight Howard ended the All-Star Game with only 9 points and 10 rebounds. Dwight's adidas running mate Derrick Rose finished the All-Star Game with 14 points and 3 assists, all while breaking out two great colorways of the adiZero Rose 2.5.
