The Indiana Pacers are well represented in Houston this weekend for the NBA All-Star festivities. The Indiana Fever even add some flavor as freshly crowned champ, Tamika Catchings will take part in the Shooting Stars competition on Saturday. The revamped format has current and former NBA players along with WNBA stars representing the Western and Eastern conference.

Later on Saturday, Paul George will shoot from distance in the three-point contest while Gerald Green will take part in the slam dunk contest. With Green and James White in the dunk contest, expectations are high for the high flyers.

But first thing is first and Friday we will hear about ABA nominee will make the Basketball Hall of Fame with Slick Leonard and Roger Brown both up as worthy candidates to join Reggie Miller and Mel Daniels in the Hall. Only one ABA candidate can make the Hall per year.

Here is the full schedule of events along with which media outlet will be covering the action.
