James Harden named starter in 2019 NBA All-Star Game

James Harden named starter in 2019 NBA All-Star Game

All-Star reserves will be selected by the coaches and are scheduled to be announced on January 31 at 6:00 PM CST on TNT.

LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers is a captain and an All-Star starter - again. As the leading vote-getter among the Eastern Conference's players, Antetokounmpo will be the captain of one of the two All-Star teams, with LeBron James being the captain of the other.

Antetokounmpo and James will have their choice from the likes of Kevin Durant, Paul George, Stephen Curry, James Harden and Kawhi Leonard, who are among the players voted as starters in the All-Star Game. The biggest surprise, if it can be called that, is Kemba Walker starting at home in Charlotte, although it's well deserved as he's been fantastic this season.

Fan voting accounted for 50 per-cent of the overall ranking with current National Basketball Association players and media making up the remaining 50 per-cent with 25 per-cent each.

All-Star Game reserves, selected by National Basketball Association head coaches, will be revealed Thursday, Jan. 31, on TNT. From there, James and Antetokounmpo will choose the rest of their 12-man rosters, with conference affiliations irrelevant.

Why did Wade not get voted in as a starter despite having the second-most fan votes among East guards behind only Irving? The logo from the respective player's team will be featured in the middle of the jersey.

Earlier this month, Twitter user Josman Suri leaked photos of what appeared to be the 2019 NBA All-Star Game jerseys before the league publicly unveiled them.

While Wade, who is in his 16th and final season before retirement, finished with the second-most fan votes among East guards, he was sixth in both the player and media vote.

But the votes from players and the media swung it the way of Oklahoma City Thunder guard George and Houston Rockets talisman Harden.

Three players who finished second at their positions in the fan vote failed to crack the starting lineups.
