The Heat fought hard last night and snapped their five-game losing streak with a playoff caliber win over the Lakers. LeBron got his teammates involved early and threw some great passes; Bosh had an outstanding first half; Wade finished strong; and both Mikes contributed off the bench.

Czar Asks You: Ultimate NBA All-Star Fantasy Draft

The 2011 NBA All-Star rosters are teeming with talent. Since 1951, basketball legends and fan favorites have showcased their talents during the annual conference showdown – from early pioneers like Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (who holds the record for most All-Star appearances) to eighties heroes Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Dominique Wilkins and Magic Johnson to TNT’s own Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller, Steve Kerr and Chris Webber. I had the tremendous opportunity to coach some of these greats to victory back in 1988 when I was the head coach of the East.

If you could assemble the ultimate NBA All-Star team which players would you draft?

On All-Star Saturday Charles Barkley, Steve Kerr, Kevin McHale, Reggie Miller, Kenny Smith and Chris Webber will play the part of general manager to put together their ultimate All-Star teams. Each analyst will draft from a pool of former All-Stars to fill out their fantasy roster. Following the show, fans can log onto and choose which analyst has the best team. The results of the fan vote will be revealed on Inside the NBA following the All-Star Game on Sunday.

Tune in to the first-ever NBA All-Star Fantasy Draft on All-Star Saturday, February 19 at 6:00 PM on TNT.

Is Amar’e Stoudemire the best thing to happen to the Knicks since Patrick Ewing? How far will he take his team?
