At the very least, two former Cats will take part in next month’s NBA All-Star Game. Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins were just named NBA All-Star Game starters, which were chosen by a combination of votes from fans (50%), players (25%), and media (25%).
The reserves, as selected by NBA head coaches, will be unveiled Tuesday, January 23 during TNT NBA Tip-Off at 7 p.m. Four-time NBA All-Star John Wall will surely be among them and Karl Towns, snubbed from last year’s game, also has an excellent shot.
Here are the rest of the starting lineups.
NBA East All-Star starters:
- LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers (Captain)
- Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks
- Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers
- Kyrie Irving, Boston Celtics
- DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors
NBA West All-Star starters:
- Steph Curry, Golden State Warriors (Captain)
- James Harden, Houston Rockets
- Kevin Durant, Golden State Warriors
- Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans
- DeMarcus Cousins, New Orleans Pelicans
This year’s All-Star Game will take place on Sunday, February 18 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (8 p.m., TNT).
