Twitter Video: Highlights from the 1973 NBA All-Star Game


The first time the NBA brought it's All-Star Game to Chicago was in 1973.


Bob Kauffman represented the Buffalo Braves who were in their third year of existence, but playing their first season under coach Jack Ramsay who would soon turn the fortunes of the team.


Also, Buffalo's own Bob Lanier of the Detroit Pistons had 10 points and grabbed six rebounds.


Check out the final score: East 104, West 84. Someday, that could end up being a halftime score the way the All-Star Game is played today when defense is barely an option.
