Now this is when the real debate will begin. There aren't many arguments to be had about the All-Star starters, but the announcement of the reserves is sure to stir hoops fans into a frenzy.
There are a couple locks that we can take for granted. It's a good bet that Kevin Love is going to be announced as an All-Star reserve. He apparently has a deep-seeded face-stomping problem, but he's also averaging 25 and 13.7 a game. If those aren't All-Star numbers, goodness, what are?
I'm also banking on LaMarcus Aldridge making the cut this year. The NBA owes him one for last year, but it helps that he's playing even better this year, averaging 23 and 8.5.
Beyond those two, Russell Westbrook is a good bet, Chris Bosh is a good bet, Deron Williams is a good bet, Steve Nash is a good bet and so on and so on and so on.
We'll find out soon enough. The All-Star reserves will be revealed on TNT at 7:00 ET. Make sure to watch, and keep it here for all the latest news and notes.
