ALL TIME PLAYERS SORTED BY DEBUT AGE

Only 22 players have been selected for the NBA All-Star Game before turning 22 years old, while 24 players were picked in their thirties.
My database still do not include full date of birth, so the players in each age group are ordered by year of birth. The youngest to play in the NBA All-Star Game clearly is Kobe Bryant (1998) with 19 years and 170 days, and the oldest is Nat Clifton (1957) with 34 years and 94 days. Kobe Bryant in 1997 was also the youngest player to start an NBA All-Star Game.
Players in blue are still playing in the NBA. List updated until 2015 edition.
