Btw this is LeBron’s 17th All Star selection. Kobe had 18 and Kareem has the record with 19.

He’s out until the 2nd half of the season, why are you surprised?

kostas earned 10 player votes, more than any laker outside of Lebron and AD. AC earned 0...... a good reason you don’t let players vote

By the way, Julius Randle is pretty much a lock for all star reserve
Joining Russell, BI as another ex young laker draftee making all star team. The lakers scouting department is doing its work

He probably won't but his all-around numbers are better than Booker's and he is the anchor who has improved the team since joining.

I wouldn't call Randle a lock.

To me, the locks in the east are Harden, Jaylen Brown, Tatum, Ben Simmons and Trae Young.

Randle is competing for the last two spots with Middleton, Abedayo, Zach Lavine, Sabonis, and a few other guys. The coaches can be a little unpredictable so I could see those last two spots going a lot of ways.

Not a fan of Ingram, but is Zion a sure fire pick over him for allstar reserves?

Sure I’d love for Lebron to get some rest
but can’t deny I’m sorta excited to watch him team up with Steph Curry for the first time ever.

I am a fan of Ingram but if I could only pick one, I'd guess Zion makes it.

BI is a small forward and Zion is a power forward so it's possible they both make it.

Randle is averaging 24/10/4, 42% from the 3 and the knicks are 7th in the East.

Haha but seriously, no way Lebron doesn't pick either Steph or Kawhi first. Will be interesting to see when Giannis gets picked, super cool if he ends up on team Lebron

Bummerville.
Was hoping they would bring back West vs East now since it’s a little more balanced.

Since the clear cut #1 pick Anthony Davis is sitting out this weekend, Lebron will pick Kawhi first.
KD might go with his own Nets teammate Kyrie right off the bat to make a statement. Follow up by who knows.

Lebron should then pick Steph 3rd and Giannis 5th if he’s still available.
Bron has never played with Embiid as that would be interesting too.

I would now select Devin Booker as the substitute for Davis now that he's injured.

The only time Anthony Davis had not made an all star team was his rookie season. So good for him that he keeps his streak alive. That makes it 8 straight selections even though he won't play.

So glad for Julius. He straight out deserved it for his play. Great dude on top of that.
