Tonight, is one of the silliest and funnest night of the NBA season. And it features two members of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Along with the rest of the Eastern Conference All-Stars, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will lead the East against the Western Conference. Both James and Irving are starters and will be coached by Celtics coach Brad Stevens. Cavs coach Tyronn Lue would have been the coach due to the Cavs having the best record, but is ineligible because he coached last year. The other starters for the East are Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan, Bulls forward Jimmy Butler and Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Out West, Warriors guard Stephen Curry, Rockets guard James Harden, Warriors forward Kevin Durant, Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard and Pelicans forward Anthony Davis start. Warriors coach Steve Kerr is the West’s coach.
And while you’re at it, pour one out for Kevin Love, who would have been an All-Star if not for a knee injury and surgery that will keep him out for the next six weeks.
