I'm going to see if I can get some seats to the dunk contest and 3 point shootout. I've always wanted to see one of these live and this will be my best chance.
Ah. Well, looks like no all-star game for me most likely.
I want to go to the Dunk/3 Point Contests as well, but can't find tickets. I don't know what the NBA's deal is, because they don't have an All-Star 2005 page on NBA.com. The only all-star stuff they have is links to an on-line ballot. They also never announced that the Rookie/Soph tickets were going on sale today. I was lucky enough to check TicketMaster yesterday and come across them.
I wish they would post a schedule of events, ticket sale times, etc. I know they have their Jam Session deals at the Convention Center, but besides the Rookie/Soph tickets I got today, I haven't seen anything else for All-Star Weekend.
EDIT: Came across the All Star webpage for last year, and it looks like they had the rookie/soph deal on friday, then "all star saturday night" (dunks/3 points/etc) the next night, and then the all star game on Sunday, for anybody interested.
