Anthony Davis is an All-Star Game Starter

NBA| Getty

For the fourth time in in five years, Anthony Davis is an NBA All-Star.

The NBA announced Davis will be a starter for the Western Conference All-Stars when the game is played on his home court February 19.  His second All-Star game as a starter, Davis averages 28.8 points, 12.1 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game this season.

No other former Wildcats will start for the East or the West.  One name missing from the Western Conference’s starting lineup is Russell Westbrook, failing to make the cut even though he averages a triple-double.

The all-star reserves will be announced a week from today.  John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins will likely be on the list.  Karl-Anthony Towns, Julius Randle and Eric Bledsoe also could potentially play in New Orleans.

    Happy for AD! But I can’t get past Curry over Westbrook. Crazy in my opinion.

      Or maybe I could stomach a 3 guard lineup with Westbrook for Leonard -but NBA has this thing for Golden Boy Curry.

      The starting lineup is determined by 50% fan voting, 25% player voting & 25% media voting. Westbrook got more votes from the players and media but curry got the starting spot because of fan voting. Its not really a mystery.

      There is a mystery and that is why the process remains flawed to allow this to occur after all these years. The knowledge of the process you mention is known by many but still when you see the release of starters many people will still be shocked by this at first reaction. The analyzing of the process is not the first reaction typically.
