All-Star spoilers begin to leak to media outlets

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

With the 2014 NBA All-Stars set to be released Thursday night, the selections are starting to leak to various outlets. This post will update as we know more.

Earlier this week, the Bulls accidentally leaked a video congratulating Joakim Noah on his selection.

Yahoo reports Roy Hibbert from the Pacers has made it, giving the Pacers at least two All-Stars for the first time in years.

CSN Northwest reports that LaMarcus Aldridge is in from the Blazers. This one was a no-brainer.

Yahoo also reports Damian Lillard from the Blazers is in. Kobe Bryant had lobbied for the young Portland point guard in his stead.

And Yahoo says Tony Parker has also made it. The coaches essentially always feel the top teams deserve a pick, so despite Parker's season not having been as good as previous seasons or really overall as high as some other options, he's in. The only time a "Spurs bias" exists outside of San Antonio, it seems.

USA Today reports John Wall is in, another expected lock. Wall honestly should be the starter ahead of Kyrie Irving.

Here's a shocker: Dwight Howard made it.
