Klay Thompson will represent the Golden State Warriors at the 2019 NBA All-Star Game. For the fifth consecutive year the sharpshooter was selected by the league’s coaches as a top reserve from the Western Conference.

Thompson was a question mark to make the game due to a slow start to the season. But he’s been on fire lately, and was rewarded for his season averages of 21.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.2 steals per game.

Thompson will join teammates Steph Curry and Kevin Durant in Charlotte, as the two MVPs were voted in as All-Star starters.

For the first time since 2015, Draymond Green will not be in the All-Star Game.

Here are the full rosters. Keep in mind that while the votes are tallied by conference, there will be a draft next Thursday where the team captains (LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo) will select their teams.
