2018 NBA All Star roster
It's the star attraction of NBA All-Star Weekend, with 12 superstar players — five starters and seven reserves — from each conference chosen by a panel of sports writers, broadcasters, and fans. Voting began on December 21, 2017. Meanwhile, keep it here for the complete list when it is announced in February.
New this year, the captains of each side picked their own All-Star teams from the A-list pool of vote-getters. Meanwhile, the starters in each conference were announced on January 18:
East Conference starters are Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks, DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors, Kyrie Irving of the Boston Celtics, Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers, and LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
West starters are Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors, Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans, James Harden of the Houston Rockets, DeMarcus Cousins of the New Orleans Pelicans, and Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.
