With five days remaining in the fan vote for the All-Star Game, back-to-back NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant and reigning NBA MVP James Harden remain outside of the Western Conference starting five. Oklahoma City Thunder’s Paul George remains ahead of Durant in the West’s starting five in the most recent fan voting results, the league announced Thursday. George joins Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic in the conference’s frontcourt.
Storyline: All-Star Selections
When Nichols answered with the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Yankees, Cousins responded by saying, with a laugh, “Well, put us up there. I would say the Warriors are for sure. You know they hate Kevin [Durant]. They hate me. I think the only guy they really like is Stephen [Curry]. Actually, they may hate him as well. They hate Draymond Green. But I mean, it is what it is. I can’t worry about that.”

So how about recruiting the league’s biggest free agent to Biggie’s borough? With the league cracking down on tampering — even LeBron James is watching what he says these days — Spencer Dinwiddie, Brooklyn’s ascendant success story at point guard, talked around a good idea. “Why would I actively recruit arguably the best player in the world to come to our team when he would fill the exact spot that we need and potentially take us from just being an eighth-, seventh-seed or so, to an Eastern Conference championship team? Oh please write this down,” Dinwiddie teased to the Daily News. “Why would I do that because then I’ll get in trouble for tampering?”
Golden State Warriors superstar guard Stephen Curry walked away thoroughly impressed with at he saw from Dallas Mavericks rookie forward Luka Doncic on Sunday night at American Airlines Center. “He’s unbelievable,” Curry said. “You can tell he is experienced in terms of playing high level basketball.” Doncic tallied a team-high 26 points in 32 minutes and also contributed six rebounds and five assists during the Mavs’ 119-114 loss to the Warriors. That includes knocking down a step-back 3-pointer right in the face of Kevin Durant near the end of the third quarter, which fascinated Curry. “He’s a guy that is always at his own pace,” Curry said. “I’m sure he hasn’t heard all the doubters and the people talking about his game that really didn’t know much about him. He has made himself known, for sure. It is fun to watch in terms of the future of the league.”
