NBA announces All-Star starters
The NBA announced the starters for the 2014 All Star Game in New Orleans on Thursday, which will feature four first timers.
The West will feature:
Stephen Curry (1st time)
Kevin Love (1st time)
The East will feature:
Kyrie Irving (1st time)
Paul George (1st time)
LeBron led the polls with 1.4 million votes, while Kevin Love barely edged out Dwight Howard to take the starting job over him. Kobe Bryant is a conditional starter right now, since he may not be fully recuperated from his knee surgery by then. As far as the All Star reserves, they will be voted in by the coaches.
