After a busy first few months, the NBA All-Star Game is here. Fans of the game and the NBA betting community in general will take the midseason opportunity to rest up over the weekend and get ready for the second half of the season.

Weve arrived at the NBA All-Star Game and so far throughout the 2013-14 campaign, all we know for sure is that this years championship hunt will be a memorable one. The Miami Heat have looked mortal in the East and have just a slight edge over the Indiana Pacers to win the Conference. Their 9/4 odds of winning the NBA championship still prevail, trailed by Indys 11/4 and Oklahoma Citys 15/4.

Yes, All-Star Weekend gives basketball aficionados the opportunity to see some of the game’s brightest and most marketable stars strut their stuff under a spotlight, but it also gives them the chance to reflect on the 2013-14 campaign in general. Are the Pacers a legitimate Eastern Conference threat?

They have 1/1 odds of winning the conference, but can they hold off the inevitable rally that many believe Miami has in store? If Kevin Durant (31.2 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 5.5 APG) is a serious MVP candidate does that mean this could be Oklahoma City’s year to win a championship? They have 15/4 odds on the NBA futures.
