It's not as glamorous as starting, but there's something to be said about being selected by coaches rather than winning a popularity contest amongst the fans. That's the reality for the 14 men below, all of whom were announced tonight as the reserves for the 2015 NBA All-Star Game.

The Hawks led all teams with three players representing their franchise (feel free to argue a fourth, Kyle Korver, got snubbed). Also noteworthy is that 11 of the 14 are ASG vets, whilst the list also includes three newcomers (as denoted by an asterisk). The biggest snubs were probably DeMarcus Cousins and Damian Lillard, the latter of which said that being overlooked for the honor would serve as great motivation for the season's second half.

It's still possible that one of them could jump onto the team as Commissioner Adam Silver will be tasked with finding a replacement for Kobe Bryant, after it was announced that Mamba was having season ending shoulder surgery. The East too could find themselves adding another player, due to Dwyane Wade being out "indefinitely" with a bum hamstring.

Anyway, here's the guys who will for sure be headed to NYC, instead of enjoying some much needed rest at home on their couches:

Eastern Conference:

Chris Bosh, Heat
Jimmy Butler, Bulls*
Al Horford, Hawks
Kyrie Irving, Cavs
Paul Millsap, Hawks
Jeff Teague, Hawks*
Dwyane Wade, Heat

Western Conference:

LaMarcus Aldridge, Trail Blazers
Tim Duncan, Spurs
Kevin Durant, Thunder
James Harden, Rockets
Chris Paul, Clippers
Klay Thompson, Warriors*
Russell Westbrook, Thunder
