With the starters announced last week, the NBA released the remaining 14 players who will participate in the All-Star game on March 7 in Atlanta.
The starters, headlined by LeBron James and Kevin Durant as the captains of each side, should make for an entertaining game from start to finish. The NBA is sticking with the draft format and will continue using the “Elam Ending” in the fourth quarter, which made the game incredibly fun a year ago.
As for the reserves, Trae Young and Devin Booker were left off the final rosters after making it a year ago, and Russell Westbrook was also left off, leaving Beal as the only representative from the Wizards. Here is a look at each conference, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
2021 NBA All-Stars
Amond the East’s reserves, Brown, Randle and LaVine will make their first All-Star game, while Tatum and Vucevic are making it for a second time.
A few surprises come from the West, including two members of the Jazz making the roster and Zion Williamson making his first All-Star game in just his second year in the league. Anthony Davis may not play in the game due to an injury, so there could be another chance for Booker to get in like he did last year as an injury replacement.
The 2021 NBA All-Star game will take place on March 7 in Atlanta, GA.
