The All-Star weekend actually kicked off last night, featuring the NBA Rising Stars challenge, but Saturday is really the big day for events. Russell Westbrook is a team captain for one of the 4 teams and will likely be squaring off against his former teammate.

The Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook will lead a Team Westbrook roster that includes seven-time NBA champion Robert Horry and Minnesota Lynx All-Star Maya Moore.

Representing the hometown Houston Rockets in the All-Star Game in Houston, Harden will be joined by former Rocket point guard Sam Cassell and Houston Comets veteran Tina Thompson.

Bosh, of the Miami Heat, leads a squad with former Atlanta Hawks star Dominique Wilkins and Chicago Sky star Swin Cash.

Team Lopez, led by the Nets center, will be joined by Muggsy Bogues, the 5'3 speedster most well-known for playing with the Charlotte Hornets. They will play with Tamika Catchings of the Indiana Fever.

The games will begin at 7:30 CDT.
