NBA All-Star starters named: LeBron sets record; see the full list

LeBron James is in his 21st NBA season.

After All-Star voting results were revealed Thursday, the Los Angeles Lakers star is now an All-Star for the 20th time, setting an NBA record and breaking the record he shared with fellow Lakers great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

His All-Star selection extends a record for consecutive All-Star selections to 20, and if he’s healthy and available, he will push his record for All-Star starts to 20.

For two decades, James has been a fixture in the NBA All-Star Game – the all-time leader in All-Star points (426), minutes (521), field goal attempts (345) and field goals made (178). He also has three All-Star Game MVPs.

The starters were determined by a vote from fans (50%), media (25%) and players (25%)

Here are the starters for the All-Star Game in Indianapolis Feb. 19 and who should be the starters:

Los Angeles Lakers guard LeBron James (20th All-Star): At 39, he’s posting stats that almost mirror his career averages: 24.8 points, 7.4 assists and 7.2 rebounds and shooting 52% from the field and 39.1% on 3s.

Phoenix Suns forward Kevin Durant (14th All-Star): At 35, Durant remains one of the game’s best offensive players, averaging 29.1 points with efficiency – 52.9% shooting from the field, 45.5% on 3s and 87.3 on free throws.

— Zillgitt: Going with James and Lillard instead of Leonard and Maxey (or even the New York Knicks’ Jalen Brunson) doesn’t equal outrage, and those three players who weren’t voted in as starters likely will be voted in by the coaches who select the reserves. The All-Star reserves will be announced Feb. 1 on TNT.
