The NBA has revealed the 2020 All-Star starters. Let’s get right to them:
- G Trae Young, Hawks
- G Kemba Walker, Celtics
- F/C Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bucks
- F/C Pascal Siakam, Raptors
- F/C Joel Embiid, Sixers
Giannis is the Eastern Conference leader in votes and will be a team captain for the second straight season. Young and Siakam both will be playing in their first career All-Star game (I still believe Siakam should have made it last season). Embiid will play in his third straight All-Star game while Walker will play in his fourth straight.
- G James Harden, Rockets
- G Luka Doncic, Mavericks
- F/C LeBron James, Lakers
- F/C Kawhi Leonard, Clippers
- F/C Anthony Davis, Lakers
James, who was the top vote-getter in the Western Conference and the entire NBA, will again be a team captain. Kawhi gets his fourth All-Star nod, all of which have come over the past five seasons. Davis is onto his seventh consecutive All-Star appearance (his rookie year is the only season he missed) and Harden will make it eight-for-eight on All-Star appearances since joining the Rockets. Finally, Doncic will play in the game for the first time of what is expected to be many for the second-year guard.
While the starters were selected by conference, the rosters will be shaken up for the All-Star game itself, with Giannis and LeBron drafting four starters apiece.
Do you agree with the selections or should another player have been included with starters? If so, who’s in and who’s out?
