2014 NBA All-Star starters: Kobe, Love, Curry in; Howard out
No first-time selections among starts as LeBron James leads the way. Who will take Kobe Bryant's place in the West?
The 2014 NBA All-Stars were announced Thursday night on TNT's "Inside the NBA."
|2014 NBA All-Star Game Starting Lineups|
|Kyrie Irving, G
|Dwyane Wade, G
|LeBron James, F
|Paul George, F
|Carmelo Anthony, F
|Stephen Curry, G
|Kobe Bryant, G
|Kevin Durant, F
|Blake Griffin, F
|Kevin Love, F
The big takeaways are that Curry overtook Chris Paul for starter status, but more importantly, Kevin Love took Dwight Howard's spot. It was believed he would overtake Griffin, but instead it's Howard that drops out. It's a massive upset that leaves questions about the hit a player takes in popularity when they leave the Lakers, and a changing perception of exactly how dominant Howard is. Huge upset.
