    • Third consecutive season that had a rookie as a hero. It was the time for Oscar Robertson.
    • In a great game (153-131) he made 23 points and 14 assists (assist record) and he absolutely deserved to become the MVP. Bob Pettit was the best scorer with 29 points (a new record too).
    • The game was basically already decided in the first quarter, when the West dominated 47-19.
    • With only a little more than 8,000 spectators, the attendance to this edition of the All-Star Game was disappointing.
    • MVP: Oscar Robertson (West)
