The 2017 NBA All-Star Game starters were announced on Thursday and as always they had everyone talking. LeBron James leads the East starters, earning his 13th straight start in the game. Four first-time starters joined James, led by his Cavs teammate Kyrie Irving, Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan and Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler.
The Western Conference starting lineup had everyone talking. Russell Westbrook, the man who is putting up one of the most historical individual seasons in NBA history as he averages a triple-double, while leading the NBA in scoring, was not voted a starter for next months game. Stephen Curry, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis (beat Zaza Pachulia) and Kawhi Leonard lead the West.
