Rockets' Harden named starter for 2018 NBA All-Star Game

DeMar DeRozan

Last October 2017, NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced that the NBA All-Star game will feature two teams that, for the first time, are not the Eastern and Western conferences.

But for the second time in the last three games they blew a lead of 20 points or more and allowed the Magic to hit the front 103-102 with 31 seconds left to play. "When I walk into the 30,000-point club they're going to look at me like, 'What are you doing here?' I ain't supposed to be there".

The format was changed from the traditional East vs. This could also potentially mean that Curry and James will be shaping the outlook of the All-Star game rosters. The fans would have had Manu GinĂ³bili ahead of James Harden as a starter.

"Captain, huh? Really Appreciate all the votes from the fans, media and players!" James, the leading vote getting among fans, will pick first and Curry will pick second.

The 14 reserves choices will be selected by National Basketball Association head coaches next week on Tuesday January 23.

Voted in as starters from the East are Milwaukee Bucks' star Giannis Antetokounmpo, Philadelphia 76ers' big man Joel Embiid, Boston Celtics'guard Kyrie Irving and Toronto Raptors' gunner DeMar DeRozan.

Pharrell, Fergie, Kevin Hart among performers at NBA All-Star weekend
Pharrell is expected to perform a medley of his hits alongside songs from N.E.R.D's most recent release, No One Ever Really Dies . Comedian Kevin Hart will headline the player introductions, with Pharrell Williams' N.E.R.D set to perform at halftime.

Other notable players who didn't make the cut to be voted as All-Star starters despite stellar seasons so far are San Antonio Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge, Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook, New York Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis. There will be 14 reserves, or seven for each team, and the captains will choose from this pool.

Curry was asked Thursday about which players he'd like to have on his team.

"Yes, it would be more fun if we had [a televised draft]".

Nope. John Wall felt the league's players are all "grown men" and can handle being skipped over on live TV during an All-Star draft.

Fans accounted for 50 percent of the vote to determine the 10 starters for the 67th NBA All-Star Game, which will take place on Sunday, Feb. 18 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
