NBA: no Wembanyama or Gobert at the All Star Game, the players selected

The All Star Game selection is now complete and this edition will be without the French.

Let's be honest, seeing Victor Wembanyama at the All Star Game for his first season might have been a little strange. If his individual performances are quite remarkable and he has just been voted best rookie of the month, the Frenchman is paying for the catastrophic results of his franchise, last in the Western Conference. To console himself, “Wemby” will still be present in this crazy weekend on February 19 with the Rising Stars Challenges with his compatriot Bilal Coulibaly.

On the other hand, the big disappointment is for Rudy Gobert. The Frenchman is perhaps in the best season of his career with a permanent impact on his Minnesota Wolves franchise, first in the Western Conference. In the running to perhaps once again become the best defender in the League, the Frenchman was not selected among the starters or by the replacements selected by the coaches.

Titulaires : Doncic (Dallas), Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City), James (cap., LA Lakers), Durant (Phoenix), Jokic (Denver).Remplaçants : Curry (Golden State), Edwards (Minnesota), Booker (Phoenix), Leonard (LA Clippers), George (LA Clippers), Davis (LA Lakers), Towns (Minnesota).

Starters: Haliburton (Indiana), Lillard (Milwaukee), Tatum (Boston), Antetokounmpo (cap., Milwaukee), Embiid (Philadelphia). Boston, Banchero (Orlando), Adebayo (Miami), Randle (New York).

Nikola Jokic could almost have achieved the hat-trick, but the NBA preferred to award the title on May 3, 2023 to Joël Embid. The Sixers pivot was rewarded for his magnificent regular season. This is the third year in a row that the distinction has been awarded to a pivot.
