2016 NBA All-Star Game starters
The 2016 NBA All-Star starting lineups have just been announced, and they feature many of the usual suspects.
Fans overwhelmingly wanted to see Kobe Bryant one last time before he retires, so he earned the most All-Star starter votes. He was oddly listed as a frontcourt player on the ballot, though, so he’ll start up front alongside Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard, who held off a late charge from Dallas’ Zaza Pachulia, of all people. Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook start in the backcourt, with the latter beating out Chris Paul.
The 2016 All-Star Game will be played in Toronto on Feb. 14.
