  • Fan voting hurts some NBA players

Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan, Jimmy Butler, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo have been named starters for the Eastern Conference based on votes from fans, media and the players themselves.

This is the fourth time Davis has been picked for the NBA's Western Conference All-Star team.

After last week's return, Davis was 63,565 votes behind San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard to land the third and final starting spot among the Western Conference frontcourt players.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will go head-to-head once more against Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry after the quartet were voted to start this year's NBA All-Star match. Two seasons ago, he was voted in as a starter but had to miss the game because of a shoulder injury.

Fan voting accounted for 50 percent in the new system, while current players and a media panel each made up 25 percent. Each ballot featured two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference. As a result, he's starting to be recognized as one of the best young men to play to game.

Not only will the New Orleans Pelicans' superstar not have to leave the friendly confines of the Smoothie King Center on February 19, but he'll also take his typical spot in the starting lineup.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, who is averaging a triple-double this season, is among the biggest snub not to be named starter.

NBA All-Star 2017 in New Orleans will bring together some of the most talented and passionate players in the league's history for a global celebration of the game. 'I'm definitely going after trying to get MVP, especially here in New Orleans. Former Wildcats John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins, who teamed up to take United Kingdom to the Elite Eight in Coach Cal's first season at United Kingdom, were both predicted to make the game as reserves by the TNT panel of Shaquille O'Neal, Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley.
