NBA All Star Game reserves feature three first-timers for East


On Thursday, 14 reserves were selected to complete the rosters for the upcoming NBA All-Star Game, featuring three first-time honorees: Knicks’ Jalen Brunson, Sixers’ Tyrese Maxey, and Magic’s Paolo Banchero. The Eastern Conference reserves include familiar names like Donovan Mitchell, Jaylen Brown, Julius Randle, and Bam Adebayo. Meanwhile, the Western Conference reserves boast perennial All-Stars Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, along with emerging talents like Devin Booker, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Anthony Edwards. The All-Star starters, announced last week, will join these reserves in Indianapolis on Feb. 18.

Injury replacements are anticipated, especially for Randle and Embiid, and coaching decisions for both conferences are pending the outcomes of upcoming games. The league has also announced a special 3-point contest between Stephen Curry and WNBA star Sabrina Ionescu during All-Star Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium. The NBA has returned to the traditional East vs. West format for the All-Star Game, aiming for a more competitive event after the previous year’s game received criticism.
