While the NBA All-Star Game is on Sunday, perhaps the most exciting and most anticipated date is Saturday night when we have the NBA All-Star Saturday Night buffet of goodies to enjoy. Everyone has something to watch and enjoy on Saturday whether it be the Shooting Stars contest, the Three-Point Contest or the grand-daddy of them all: the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.

But while the bulk of the action — or the creme de la creme – doesn’t happen until half past eight at night, there’s still plenty of NBA All-Star action to cancel out all the other boring Saturday day-time television that plagues your cable box each weekend.

So clear your schedule and get ready for a Saturday full of basketball action:
