Kobe Bryant is the leading vote-getter for his final NBA All-Star Game, and Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry made late moves to join him in the starting lineup.
Leonard will start in his first All-Star Game and Lowry will start on his home court in Toronto after both made up ground in the final days of voting.
Bryant had 1.9 million votes and was selected an All-Star on Thursday for the 18th time. MVP Stephen Curry of Golden State was next with 1.6 million. They will be joined in the Western Conference lineup by Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, and San Antonio’s Leonard.
Cleveland’s LeBron James and Indiana’s Paul George will start in the East frontcourt on Feb. 14 with New York’s Carmelo Anthony.
Miami’s Dwyane Wade starts at guard with Lowry, who overcame a 32,000-vote deficit to Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving after the last update.
