NBA All-Star Game Reserves Announced

Kiwi basketball sensation Steven Adams has been snubbed for the NBA's annual All-Star game despite his continued success with Oklahoma City Thunder.

Towns joins a seasoned group of All-Stars from the West, led by San Antonio's LaMarcus Aldridge, his Timberwolves teammate Jimmy Butler, Golden State's Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, Portland's Damian Lillard and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook.

Besides Porzingis, the rest of the Eastern Conference reserves were Washington's John Wall and Bradley Beal, Boston's Al Horford, Cleveland's Kevin Love, Toronto's Kyle Lowry and Indiana's Victor Oladipo.

James will have the first pick after receiving the most total votes.

The NBA changed the format this season from its traditional East vs. The remaining reserve spots will be named by National Basketball Association head coaches and revealed on January 23, while on January 25th the captains will select their squads regardless of conference.

The pool of starters include: James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid, Kyrie Irving and DeMar DeRozan, Curry, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. After the starters are chosen, Curry will have the first pick among the reserves.

New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis and Minnesota Timberwolves centre Karl-Anthony Towns have been named to their first all-star game as part of a group of 14 reserves chosen Tuesday.

The Golden State star again has massive numbers this season, as he is averaging 26.2 points per game and connecting on 51.1 percent of his shots from the floor.

Players Only reveals All-Star reserves from the Western Conference.

James and Curry are scheduled to choose the teams via a conference call with league officials on Thursday; rosters will be announced later that day.

A backcourt of Curry and Irving may be as exciting as it gets, while James gets to play with Durant and Davis, and they will be hard to defend.

All-Star regulars Griffin, Chris Paul, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony also missed out.
