The NBA revealed the starters for the all-star game voted by the fans, players, and media panel. For the east it’s Lebron James (Cleveland Cavaliers), Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks), Kyrie Irving (Boston Celtics), Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers), and DeMar Derozan (Toronto Raptors).
For the west it’s James Harden (Houston Rockets), Kevin Durant (Golden State Warriors), Steph Curry (Golden State Warriors), Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans) and DeMarcus Cousins (New Orleans Pelicans).
This season, it will be a draft for the all-star game. Lebron James will get first pick and Steph Curry will have first choice of color jersey because of the Western Conference having home team status. They will choose from the eight starters first and then the reserves regardless of conference. The rosters for the game will be announced next Thursday at 7 p.m. during the one hour edition of TNT NBA Tip-Off at 7 p.m. ET.
The other 14 reserves (7 per conference) will be revealed on Tuesday January 23. They will be voted by the NBA head coaches. From the Western Conference I think they will be: Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder), Paul George (Oklahoma City Thunder), Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns), Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors), Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolves), Jimmy Butler (Minnesota Timberwolves), and Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets).
From the Eastern Conference I think they will be: Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers), Victor Oladipo (Indiana Pacers), Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards), John Wall (Washington Wizards), Hassan Whiteside (Miami Heat), Kristaps Porzingis (New York Knicks), and Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons).
