NBA Math @NBA_Math
Western Conference All-Star starter ranks in our RPR MVP Predictor, which factors in team success and individual excellence:
Nikola Jokic: No. 1
LeBron James: No. 3
Stephen Curry: No. 6
Ja Morant: No. 14 (which, subjectively, is too low)
Andrew Wiggins: No. 33 – 7:14 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Results are in. Durant, Embiid, Giannis, DeRozan and Young are all-star starters from the East. LeBron, Jokic, Wiggins, Curry and Morant from the West.
As expected, the all-star fate of Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam is in the hands of the head coaches, who vote in the reserves – 7:14 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
DeMar DeRozan is heading to his fifth All-Star Game. LeBron James is the West captain … again … 4-0 as a captain. KD captain of the East. – 7:13 PM

Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA
It comes as no surprise that Lakers forward LeBron James was named the captain of the Western Conference All-Stars. – 7:04 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Tobias Harris (illness) will indeed start against the LeBron-less Lakers.
Danny Green (hip) is returning after missing the past seven games, coming off the bench. Doc Rivers said he’ll be limited to about 15 minutes. – 7:04 PM

EAST
Darius Garland
Fred VanVleet
DeMar DeRozan
Giannis Antetokounmpo
Joel Embiid
WEST
Steph Curry
Ja Morant
LeBron James
Nikola Jokic
Rudy Gobert
*IMO the logical solution with no KD is to slide DeMar up to the FC where he belongs. – 6:38 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Trying to look on the bright side of LeBron missing the game tonight… maybe that opens the door for some THT showcase minutes when Russ is out. – 6:25 PM
StatMuse @statmuse
LeBron James is 105 points away from overtaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for most all-time points in NBA history including playoffs.
Depending on how many games he misses, he could achieve that feat 7 games from now…
When the Lakers play the Bucks, the team that drafted Kareem. pic.twitter.com/urxDdb9fOC6:22 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Lots of gold LeBron and Kobe jerseys in the crowd tonight. But shoutout to the dude with an orange Syracuse Melo jersey. That’s a good deep cut. – 6:22 PM

Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
LeBron James is averaging 29.1 points per game, easily the most in NBA history by a player in his 19th season or later.
He could go scoreless in 10 straight games and still be averaging more points than anyone ever in Year 19 or later. – 6:08 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Vogel says that the Lakers haven’t liked their small lineups WITHOUT LeBron — with Melo, Ariza or Johnson as the only big. Isn’t revealing his starting lineup, but acknowledges Dwight is in the mix tonight. – 6:07 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Anthony Davis will play tonight, his second game back from his knee injury.
Prior to tonight’s game, LeBron and AD had played only 25 of the last 98 games together. – 6:06 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
#Lakers forward LeBron James is questionable for tonight’s game vs. the #Sixers with a sore left knee. Meanwhile, Lakers post player Anthony Davis (left knee) is probable. Sixers swingman Danny Green (right hip) is questionable, but is expected to play. – 3:33 PM

Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs are the perfect blend of talent and chemistry. They play with a palpable bravado and irrational audacity that has them eyeing the postseason without LeBron for the first time since 1998 — and looking capable of making noise when they get there

Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Crazy to note Miami will likely have its first 50-win season since the LeBron/Wade/Bosh era. But not many coaches I’d take over Spoelstra – 9:15 PM
