The starters for the 2023 NBA All-Star Game in Salt Lake City on February 19 were officially announced on Thursday as voted on by the fans, current NBA players, and a media panel.
The Eastern Conference starters included Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jayson Tatum, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Donovan Mitchell. As the leading vote-getter in the east, Antentokounmpo will be a team captain opposite of Western Conference vote leader LeBron James. Both captains will choose who will be on their respective teams for the exhibition and unlike in year's past, they will make their choices right before the game begins.
