The NBA announced its starters Thursday night for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. Here are the starters for the East and West, as voted on by the fans:

PositionEastWest
BackcourtRajon Rondo, Boston CelticsChris Paul, Los Angeles Clippers
BackcourtDwyane Wade, Miami HeatKobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
FrontcourtLeBron James, Miami HeatKevin Durant, OKC Thunder
FrontcourtCarmelo Anthony, New York KnicksBlake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers
FrontcourtKevin Garnett, Boston CelticsDwight Howard, Los Angeles Lakers


No big surprises, and it's good to see that Jeremy Lin, who admitted himself that he shouldn't be an All-Star, wasn't selected for the West guard spot. There were snubs as there always are (Tim Duncan and the absence of a single Warriors player may be the biggest), but in general it was about what you'd expect from the fans and a good representation of the biggest "stars" in the league, which is the whole point.
