WNBA All-Star Game 2017: How to watch, who’s playing
The WNBA All-Star Game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, from KeyArena in Seattle. The game will be televised on ABC, and the three-point competition is slated to start during halftime. This is the first WNBA All-Star weekend in two years because last year the league was forced to take a break during the Rio Olympics.

The West is stacked with Mercury, Lynx and Sparks, winners of the last four titles. Five future Hall of Famers round out the starting lineup in MVP-favorite Sylvia Fowles, Maya Moore, Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird and Candace Parker. This is a fast-paced group of scorers with size.
Fowles, a 6’6 center, is averaging a 20 and 10 double-double for the 16-2 Lynx. Coming off a five-game championship loss to the Sparks last season, Minnesota looks as hot as ever, and that’s largely because she’s having one of the best seasons of her career. The defensive anchor will be surrounded by shooters in the All-Star game too, with all four of the other starters shooting 35 percent or better from deep.

On Monday, LeBron reportedly lobbied Derrick Rose to join the Cavaliers on a one-year flyer. The plugged-in Joe Vardon reported that Rose and Bron “spent the day together discussing Cheap Miami Heat Jerseys how the team will return to the finals without Kyrie” and that “James is eager to see [Irving] off.”
