As much as I would like to get all fired up and scream about this player or that player not getting named an NBA All-Star starter, I just can’t.
Not this year.
I have no problem with the starters named, which were determined by fan, player and media votes.
In the East: Boston’s Kyrie Irving and Charlotte's Kemba Walker are the two backcourt starters, and Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo, Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard and Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid are the frontcourt starters.
For the record, that’s who I picked.
In the West: Houston’s James Harden and Golden State’s Steph Curry are in the backcourt, and Golden State’s Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City’s Paul George and Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James make up the frontcourt.
