Despite only playing in six games this season, Los Angeles Lakers SG Kobe Bryant has been voted to represent the Western Conference in this year’s NBA All-Star Game.

Bryant, who finished with 988,884 fan votes, will appear in his 16th-straight All-Star Game–if he is healthy enough to play, of course.

Bryant, playing in his 18th season, is a 4-time All-Star MVP. The 5-time NBA champion is the only player in NBA history to be selected to 16-straight NBA All-Star games.

Despite being voted as an All-Star this season, Bryant said he does not want to play in the game, according to the LA Times’ Mike Bresnahan.

Kobe says he appreciates being voted an All-Star but “with all due respect” doesn’t want to play in the game.

Other notables: Pau Gasol finished 10th in the Western Conference front court voting with 247,323 votes.

The Los Angeles Lakers will fill two of the five positions on the 2013 Western Conference All-Star team. SG Kobe Bryant and C Dwight Howard have been selected to represent the Western Conference in this year’s All-Star game in Houston, Texas on February 17th.

Bryant, the overall leader in fan votes with 1,591,437, will appear in his 15th straight All-Star game. This consecutive All-Star selections mark breaks the tie he shared with Jerry West, Karl Malone and Shaquille O’Neal.

Although Bryant was practically a “shoe-in” selection like usual, Howard’s selection was a little less certain. This season, the NBA decided to eliminate the center position from the ballot altogether; the league cited the recent change in traditional positions, in which the center position has become relatively archaic.

Howard received 922,070 fan votes, eclipsed only by the Thunder’s Kevin Durant in the West’s frontcourt.

Bryant, playing in his 17th season, is a 4-time All-Star MVP. Howard, the number one overall draft pick in the 2004 draft, will make his seventh straight appearance as an All-Star center since his first selection in 2007.

Other notables: PF Pau Gasol finished fifth in frontcourt balloting with 310,845 votes. Fellow point guard Steve Nash came in sixth among Western Conference guards with 270,741.

Bryant and Howard will be joined by two of their co-tenant Clippers, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, in the West’s starting lineup. Kevin Durant will be the third frontcourt player to make up the 2013 Western Conference starting lineup.
