2012 NBA ALL-STAR GAME: BRYANT AND DURANT LEAD WEST STARTERS, HOWARD, JAMES AND ROSE LEAD EAST STARTERS
Mon, 06 Feb 2012 05:30 PM EST

Two cities and 3 franchises accounted for six of the 10 players voted starters for the 2012 NBA All-Star Game, related Thursday.

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James of the Miami Heat were voted Eastern Conference starters for the Feb. 26 game at Amway Center in Orlando, FL. Football odds

The Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum and the LA Clippers’ Chris Paul and Blake Griffin were voted starters in the West.

Defending NBA MVP Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls was voted a starting guard together with Dwyane Wade in the East Conference, with the Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony joining James at forward and Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic at center.

The starters were selected by admirer balloting. Howard was the number 1 vote-getter with 1.6 million approvals.

Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder was the lone West starter from outside of the Los Angeles city limits. He’ll start with Blake Griffin at forward, with Bryant and Paul at guard and Bynum at center. Football spreads

Griffin and Bynum are first-time starters, while Bryant qualified his record-tying 14th sequential choice.

“I understand a large amount of fellows deserve it and I recognize the admirers voting me in,” Griffin claimed after the Clippers ‘ loss to the Denver Nuggets Thursday night. “I have to do lots of work to get to where I desire to be. It must be a fun game. That is what those games are about, having a good time and taking a break and locating on a show out there.”

Bynum captured the starting center place that for years went to Yao Ming, who made vacant last summer. He was chosen as a reserve forward last year, when he became the 1st rookie All-Star since Yao in 2003.

“For me, it appears good mainly because at least this year I’m putting up the sort of numbers that adjust me for it and it’s superb because the fans voted me in,” Bynum said Thursday in LA.

It is the 1st time since 1997, when Houston had Hakeem Olajuwon and Charles Barkley, and Seattle sent Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, that 2 pairs of colleagues have been voted to start for one conference.

“It will be Lob City in Orlando,” the Los Angeles Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan said of Griffin and Paul playing in the game. “I cannot wait for the game so I can see them go out there and do perform.”

Bryant joins O’Neal, Jerry West and Karl Malone with his 14th straight starting nod. He entitled his fourth All-Star Most Valuable Player award last year, meeting Bob Pettit’s NBA record.

“It means a lot,” Rose announced of the honor before the start of the Chicago Bulls’ game at the Knicks. “Just desiring to be in the game is something that you should take to heart. I take to heart.”

“It’s absolutely fun,” Rose asserted of playing with the leagues’ other stars. “You understand more command talents. Particularly playing on a team like that where every one of them are dissimilar kind of commanders. And me being a young player, that’s something, I’ll take from there and add it to this team.”

Although he’s pleased to be a starter, Bynum remains in astonishment of his teammate Bryant’s 14 All-Star appearances.

“It’s unimaginable. It’s ridiculous. But, glaringly, he’s the best player in the game. He’s going to make it each year,” Bynum said.

The reserves will be chosen by voting of the coaches from every conference and should be said next Thursday.
