Lakers BasketBlog: Kobe Bryant, a three time All-Star MVP, will make his 12th All-Star game appearance alongside Steve Nash, Carmelo Anthony, Tim Duncan and Amare Stoudemire for the Western Conference at the 2010 All-Star Game in Dallas.
The reserves for each conference will be announced next Thursday on TNT. Here’s how the selection process for the reserves works:
In selecting the reserves, the 30 NBA head coaches must vote for seven players within their conference, including two guards, two forwards, a center and two players regardless of position. Coaches are not permitted to vote for players on their team. After the coaches select the reserves, if a player is unable to participate in the All-Star Game, NBA Commissioner David Stern will select a replacement. Reserves will be announced Jan. 28, on TNT.
The East and West All-Star coaches and coaching staffs will be determined by the best record in each conference through games played Jan. 31. Last year’s East and West coaches – Orlando’s Stan Van Gundy and the L.A. Lakers’ Phil Jackson — are not eligible to coach this year’s All-Star Game.
The final voting tallies are listed below the jump.
