Green, Thompson picked, giving Warriors 3 NBA All-Stars
NEW YORK (AP) Draymond Green and Klay Thompson have been picked for the Western Conference team, giving the NBA champion Golden State Warriors three All-Stars for the first time in 40 years.
Sacramento's DeMarcus Cousins, Houston's James Harden, San Antonio's LaMarcus Aldridge, the Clippers' Chris Paul and New Orleans' Anthony Davis were also chosen Thursday for the West squad for the Feb. 14 game in Toronto.
The Raptors' DeMar DeRozan will represent the home team and is joined by fellow East reserves Chicago's Jimmy Butler, Detroit's Andre Drummond, Miami's Chris Bosh, Washington's John Wall, Atlanta's Paul Millsap and Boston's Isaiah Thomas.
The reserves were selected by the head coaches in each conference, who had to vote for seven players: two guards, three frontcourt players and two additional players at any position. They weren't allowed to vote for players from their own team.
