NBA All-Star weekend is one of the best weekends of the year in the NBA and while health and safety protocols have limited what can be done this year, the NBA is still going to be having an All-Star weekend full of everybody’s favorite contests packed into one night! 

Some of the league’s biggest stars will be making the trip to Atlanta to participate in All-Star weekend and just this past week, we got a glimpse into who will be making the trip. LeBron James and Kevin Durant were voted the captains of the Western and Eastern Conferences respectively and starting along with them are some of the most elite players in the league. 

Stephen Curry, Luka Doncic, Kawhi Leonard and Nikola Jokic are the other Western Conference starters and in the East, Bradley Beal, Kyrie Irving, Giannis Atnetokounmpo and Joel Embiid join Durant as the Eastern Conference starters. 

The Western Conference Reserves this year are: Chris Paul, Rudy Gobert, Paul George, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell, Zion Williamson and Anthony Davis, who will likely be replaced due to injury. 

The Eastern Conference Reserves this year are: James Harden, Ben Simmons, Julius Randle, Zach LaVine, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Nikola Vucevic.
