Snapshot: Four first-timers voted to start NBA All-Star game

Stephen Curry (pictured), Kevin Love, Paul George and Kyrie Irving have been voted NBA All-Stars, putting four first-time starters in the Feb. 16 game in New Orleans. Kobe Bryant was elected by fans to his 16th All-Star game, second-most in NBA history. Curry, perhaps the biggest snub last season, will join him in the Western Conference backcourt. Love passed Dwight Howard in the final days of voting and will start in the frontcourt along with Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant and the Clippers’ Blake Griffin. LeBron James was the leading vote-getter with 1.4 million votes and will be joined by Miami teammate Dwyane Wade. George, who has led Indiana to the league’s best record, and New York’s Carmelo Anthony are the other East forwards. Irving will start at guard. – Associated Press
