2000 NBA All-Star Game Logo

The 2000 NBA All-Star Game, held in Oakland, California, was the 49th edition of the North American National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game. The Western Conference won the game with the score of 137-126 while Shaquille O'Neal and Tim Duncan were both named MVP of the game. O'Neal took the All Star MVP trophy saying to Duncan, "you already have one of those rings (referring to the championship ring Duncan received due to him being a member of the 1998-99 Championship team with David Robinson and Greg Popovich), so I'm taking the trophy." Allen Iverson was the leading scorer of the game with 26 points.
