All-Star: the five selected, the surprises inside | Israel today


LeBron James (West) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (East) will be the captains in the big exhibition game again this year • Joel Embiid from Philadelphia found himself out • The injured Zion Williamson actually entered

On February 19, in Salt Lake City, the NBA will concentrate entirely on the big show, the most intriguing exhibition game that basketball can offer - the All-Star game between the East and the West, and tonight (Friday) the five were chosen.

The West will be led, unsurprisingly, by LeBron James.

The Los Angeles Lakers star will tie the All-Star game record with 19, sharing the top spot with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, whom he is close to replacing as the NBA's all-time leading scorer.

With him in the top five: the star of the champion Golden State Warriors, Steph Curry;

Dallas Mavericks' incredible Slovenian, Luka Doncic;

Denver Nuggets legend Nikola Jokic;

And the surprise pick from the New Orleans Pelicans, Zion Williamson.

The latter is indeed very popular, and no one should be surprised that he was selected for the top five of the West, but the fact is that he is injured and a big doubt for the game.

In the East, the captain is the same captain as last year, Giannis Antetokounmpo, the mighty Greek of the Milwaukee Bucks.

With him in the five: the controversial star of the Brooklyn Nets, Kyrie Irving, and his teammate Kevin Durant;

Donovan Mitchell of the Cleveland Cavaliers;

And Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics, who was favored over Joel Embiid, the star of the Philadelphia Sixers who can't believe he was left out.
