For the second year in a row, the Golden State Warriors are sending four players to the NBA All-Star Game. Klay Thompson and Draymond Green were selected as reserves, and will join starters Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant for one of the most exciting days of the year.
For Thompson, it’s his fourth selection, and his fourth in a row. It’s Green’s third selection, and third in a row.
The reserves were chosen by the coaches, which goes to show you just how well-respected the Warriors are around the league. Thompson and Green are obviously incredibly deserving for their contributions on both sides of the court, and the Warriors’ dominance has been rewarded.
The 12 players selected from the West are the four Warriors, along with James Harden (starter), Anthony Davis (starter), DeMarcus Cousins (starter), Russell Westbrook, Damian Lillard, Karl-Anthony Towns, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Jimmy Butler.
But those 12 won’t play together, as the captains (Curry and LeBron James) will select their teams from the 24 total All-Stars. The teams will be revealed on Thursday, January 25, so stay tuned to see if the Dubs end up together.
In the meantime, celebrate that the Warriors have 33% of the West’s All-Star selections!
The All-Star Game takes place on Sunday, February 18, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
