NBA coaches picked seven players from their conference (2 guards, 3 frontcourt and 2 players regardless of their position). Coaches could not select players from their own team.

These are the official NBA All-Star Game rosters (# denotes All-Star Game participations, and S is for All-Star Game started).

* Kobe Bryant is expected to miss the rest of the season with a torn rotator cuff. The NBA will choose a new reserve, and West coaches leaded by Steve Kerr will pick a new starter, presumably James Harden.

There are 4 players who will make their debut as an All-Star in NY: Kyle Lowry, Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague and Klay Thompson.

Marc and Pau Gasol just become the first brothers as NBA All-Star starters and also the first time a player named Gasol starts an NBA All-Star Game. Dick & Tom Van Arsdale played in 1971 and 1972 NBA All-Star Games.

For the first time, the NBA has extended the All-Star break a few days. Cleveland at Chicago on Thursday Feb. 12 will be the last game before the All-Star Weekend, and the regular season will restart with a TNT doubleheader on Feb. 19. All the NBA teams will have at least an eight days break, three days more than the last All-Star breaks.
