In more exciting news than the Olympic Lineup, The 2014 Starters were announced yesterday. The 4 first time staters include: K.Love inching out Dwight Howard (great news), Steph Curry who has been playing bonkers this season, Kyrie who has been super solid, and Paul George who has quickly emerged as one of the leagues best. Top 5 vote getters go like this: Lebron, KD, George, Curry, & Kobe? Come onn man. The fan voting for this all star game has got to have some limitations put in place. Kobe is selected to his 16th all-star appearance, only 3 behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. If Kobe stays in the league for 4 more years, doesn’t play a minute, and sits on the end of the bench in uniform, he will surpass Kareem! Not Kobe’s fault, but still… We get the reserves next Thursday.
The Dunk Contest participants have not been finalized. Paul George is still undecided. After THIS DUNK, he really has nothing more to prove, the dude can flat out sky. I hope he does and brings some hype back to the dunk contest. In today’s NBA we miss out on the all-time greats participating in the dunk contest.
