This year’s All-Star Game is set to feature 24 of the best players in the league with first-time selections ready to put themselves among NBA’s elite.
The Eastern Conference will be all too familiar for basketball fans with a number of players participating who are there just about every season.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. NBA veteran Kobe Bryant will obviously represent the West in his last All-Star game after helping the Lakers win five NBA championships over a 20-year career spent entirely in Los Angeles, alongside familiar faces Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook.
While these players obviously deserve their honours, a new generation are stepping up to the mark with younger stars filling up the roster to take on the sports’ greats.
