Chris Paul & Dwayne Wade named All-Star Captains


The NBA announced Thursday that Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Clippers guard Chris Paul will serve as All-Star Saturday captains for the Eastern and Western conferences, respectively

The captains are a new addition to All-Star Saturday this year, part of a twist that was first announced back in December. The All-Star Saturday events will remain the same — the Shooting Stars, Skills Challenge, Three-Point Contest and the Slam Dunk Contest — but the conferences will earn points based on their performances in each event. Running point totals for both conferences will be kept throughout the night and the winning conference will receive $350,000 to donate to charity while the losing conference settles for $150,000.

MORE INFO COMING SOON!

The real question is will Chris Paul play in the All-Star game in Houston?
