"The emails and texts didn't stop coming until about two weeks after I wore it," Simpson said. "It seems everyone saw it. The players still joke with me about it when I do games now. It really was a great experience and I'm happy to do it again."

Simpson wore the innovative device, which looks like a pair of glasses, when the Indiana Fever played the Phoenix Mercury. The cam not only provided a different vantage point, it also caught Candice Dupree bumping into Simpson, which resulted in a one-game suspension.

"Maybe we should fly in 'Pree' for it," said Taurasi, joking around. "I'm not going near that thing."

Taurasi missed Phoenix's last game because she accumulated her seventh technical foul, which resulted in a one-game suspension.

MINNESOTA TAKEOVER — For the second consecutive All-Star game, the Lynx are fully represented.

West coach Cheryl Reeve has four of her Minnesota players on the roster and her staff on the bench. Maya Moore and Seimone Augustus were elected as starters and Lindsay Whalen and Rebekkah Brunson were chosen as reserves. The same four played in the 2011 All-Star game.

Augustus was excited again to play with her teammates.

"To get to share in that experience with Maya, Whalen and Brunson, just kind of get to enjoy it, it's kind of a Los Lynx family reunion," she said.

Reeve will get all four of them on the court together at some point in the game. Brunson was announced as a starter replacing Griner.

FIRST TIMERS — Surprisingly, Candace Parker is playing in her first All-Star game.

She was selected to the team in 2011, but was unable to play because of a knee injury.

"It's really cool because I haven't been able to play because of injuries," the Los Angeles Sparks star said. "It will be a great time."

If you count Parker, eight players will be making their debuts in the game. Griner and Delle Donne would raise that total to 10 if they were healthy.

Another first-timer, Washington's Ivory Latta, is already making the most of her All-Star experience. She hit a half-court shot in practice Friday worth $100.

While there was some question whether Latta's foot was behind the line, the answer came when an ESPN producer showed Latta video footage that proved it.

"See, I told everyone," Latta said. "It just means that I'll have to buy everyone appetizers for dinner."
