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.
