The Warriors are the first team to have a record-tying four All-Stars in consecutive years.

Surprisingly, Chris Paul and Paul George were not selected.

LeBron James and Stephen Curry will choose the two All-Star teams on Thursday without regard for conference affiliation from the pool of starters and reserves. Their first four selections must come from the pool of starters. 

Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins comprise the group of starters.

The NBA changed the format this season from its traditional East vs. West matchup after lackluster games the past two seasons, when players made little attempt to defend and the West nearly scored 200 points in both of its victories.

“This is the reason they did this format, to make it very competitive,” James said. “The All-Star Game hasn’t been what it should be the last few years. I’m going to take it upon myself, and obviously the rest of the guys to go out there and play the game the right way and compete. Our fans deserve it.”
