Starters have been announced for the 2016 NBA All-Star Game. The league’s marquee weekend will take place from February 12-14 in Toronto, with the main event tipping off at 8:30 EST from Air Canada Centre.
Fans were asked to vote for two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference to decide who will open the NBA’s 65th All-Star Game. The 10 starters were unveiled on TNT Thursday night.
Guards: Kyle Lowry, Dwyane Wade
Frontcourt: LeBron James, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony
Guards: Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook
Frontcourt: Kobe Bryant (leading overall vote-getter), Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard
DIME‘s chosen starters, unsurprisingly, differ from those selected by fans – most notably in the cases of Bryant and Wade. For a full breakdown of who we deem most deserving of starting spots, click here for the East and here for the West.
