NBA: A chance to join the legends

/> Shaq is enjoying a renaissance season and could receive a hometown boost since the game is in Phoenix. But it’s not as if Shaq has been playing for the Suns most of his career.

Iverson is having the worst offensive season of his career. Most feel he wouldn’t even be in Phoenix if fans hadn’t voted him in.

Bob Pettit, who played for the St. Louis Hawks decades ago, is the only player to earn All-Star Game MVP honors four times.

Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson are three-time All-Star Game MVPs.

Being a two-time All-Star Game MVP is a short list. Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird, George Gervin and Bill Russell have one each.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, one of the all-time greats, has the most All-Star Game selections (19) but never won an All-Star Game MVP award.

Kobe and LeBron already are in select company, but will one of them join an even shorter list tonight at US Airways Center?
