Come on, you're the National League's starting pitcher, stay out of the heat and preserve your strength. Well, take a guess who was among the first to arrive in the clubhouse Tuesday afternoon? There was Nomo reading a congratulatory fax from Japanese Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama.

Motivated by last summer's All-Star Game embarrassment, Major League Baseball owners, meeting in Phoenix on Thursday, are expected to endorse a recommendation by Commissioner Bud Selig that the winning league in the midsummer exhibition gets home-field advantage in the World Series. There will be no changes in the size of rosters.

Two days after managing in the biggest All-Star debacle in baseball history, Bob Brenly said he still didn't have any answers. "I don't know what we could have done different," said Brenly, the Arizona Diamondback manager who managed the National League squad in a 7-7 tie that was ended after 11 innings after both teams ran out of players. Some have suggested, why didn't they just hold a home-run derby to decide the winner? "Yeah, I heard about the home-run derby," Brenly said.

Should 14-year-old girls rule the world? They're running the WNBA, and that's as it should be, say the people who created the three-year-old women's pro basketball league which tonight plays its first All-Star game at Madison Square Garden. In other words, if you're 14, female and your Mom and Dad keep buying you WNBA tickets and they get you to the game on time, you get to vote for whoever you want.

Larry Bird has won the right to coach in the NBA All-Star game. However, it's still not clear whether he'll go. The rookie coach has qualified to guide the Eastern squad because his Indiana Pacers had the best winning percentage in the conference after Sunday's games. But Bird, who played in 12 All-Star games when he was with the Boston Celtics, has said he doesn't want to attend the Feb. 8 game at Madison Square Garden because he already had plans to spend the break at his Florida home.

Minus the physicality and emotion that make hockey compelling, NHL All-Star games tend to become snoozefests or scoring sprees. But in the league's first All-Star contest since 2004 -- the 2005 game was canceled by the lockout and the 2006 game was skipped in deference to the Turin Olympics -- players felt obligated Wednesday to become entertainers. As these things go, they succeeded.

NEW ORLEANS - Defense won the NBA All-Star game. No joke. Well, maybe a chuckle is in order. The East wasn't exactly hand-in-the-face tough during a game that featured a record 318 points and zero blocked shots, but it did manage to stop the West when it needed to Sunday during the final minutes of a 163-155 victory. BOX SCORE: East 163, West 155 Carmelo Anthony's record eighth three-pointer was part of a game-ending 10-0 run at the Smoothie King Center that helped the East break the record of 155 points set by the West in 2003.

James Harden will start in the backcourt for the Western Conference All-Star team, replacing Kobe Bryant, who will sit out the game Sunday with a knee injury. West coach Scott Brooks (Oklahoma City Thunder) made his selection on Friday, picking his former guard Harden, who spent three seasons with the Thunder before a 2012 trade to the Houston Rockets. Bryant was injured on Dec. 17 in Memphis, suffering a fracture of his lateral tibial plateau in his left knee. After missing the start of the season while recovering from an Achilles tear, Bryant got through just six games before suffering another injury.

The Lakers will be represented at the NBA All-Star game, but not on the court. Kobe Bryant was recently voted in by the fans as a starter but a knee injury will force him to sit out on Feb. 16. No other Lakers were named to the Western Conference squad, including four-time All-Star Pau Gasol. Instead, the Western Conference will be represented by Chris Paul (Clippers), Dwight Howard and James Harden (both with the Houston Rockets), LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)

MIAMI -- Kobe Bryant kept asking people to vote for someone besides him for the All-Star game. So when the votes were tallied and he was announced a starter Thursday , he didn't exactly celebrate. Bryant said it was "always a tremendous honor" to be selected to the All-Star game but added that, uh, he had no desire to play in it. "No, I don't think so," he said flatly. How come? "With all due respect to the fans who voted me in, and I certainly appreciate that ... but you've got to do the right thing as well.

There were a few tantalizing hints of Olympic feats to come and a few reminders of glories long past, and those were reasons enough to declare the NHL's new All-Star format a success and send everyone home happy Sunday after a lively and surprisingly well-played game. "I don't even know what the score was," said left wing Keith Tkachuk of Phoenix and the North American All-Stars. "I had a great time. The intensity level was high and there were even a couple of bumps. It was awesome."
