Last week, the NBA revealed which players will be in the starting lineups next month when the 2016 NBA All-Star Game tips off in Toronto. Just in case you need a quick refresher, the Eastern and Western Conference starters are:
EAST: Kyle Lowry, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George
WEST: Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Kawhi Leonard
Now, we know the players who will be joining them. The official announcement hasn’t been made yet (that’ll happen in about an hour), but the names of the rest of the players who will participate in the game have leaked out. The reserves are:
EAST: Paul Millsap, Chris Bosh, Jimmy Butler, John Wall, Isaiah Thomas, Andre Drummond, DeMar DeRozan
WEST: Draymond Green, Anthony Davis, Chris Paul, DeMarcus Cousins, Klay Thompson, James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge
OK, so who got snubbed? Dirk Nowitzki? Damian Lillard? Tim Duncan? Feel free to argue amongst yourselves...
