The votes are in and we have our starting fives for the NBA All-Star game. Big props to Amar’e Stoudemire getting the first Knicks start since Patrick Ewing way, way back in 1997. As a Bulls fan, you know I’m absolutely PUMPED to see my main man Derrick Rose starting on the East. It’s going to be a crazy point guard battle between Rose and Chris Paul on the West. Other than that, your standard stars fill out the rest of the rosters – even a standard star who hasn’t played all season, like Yao Ming.
But enough about the results, let’s get to some cool early pictures of the stars in their well-earned unis. Keep reading to check out full-sized pics of All-Stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Paul and Stoudemire.
Also, what do you think of the starting rosters? Did the fans get it right? Are there any snubs? Who should play center for Yao? Let me know in the comments below and enjoy the pics!
NBA All-Star Weekend tips off on Friday, February 18th, with the game itself taking place on Sunday, February 20th.
