The NBA recently announced the 2021 All-Star Game starting players ahead of the March 7 event at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena. Kevin Durant is the East captain while Lebron James will captain the West.
All 10 starters were selected by fans, current NBA players and a media panel. In addition to drafting the starters, Durant and James will also draft their remaining teams from a pool of players voted as reserves from each conference.
This year marks the 70th NBA All-Star Game, however, due to COVID restrictions, all events will be held on one day instead of a dedicated weekend.
