Draymond Green, Jimmy Butler Top List Of 2016 NBA All-Star Reserves

The list of 2016 NBA All-Star reserves for the Eastern and Western Conferences were announced on Thursday night, with Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler headlining a star-studded group of coaches' picks.

Green was passed by San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard (and oddly enough, Dallas' Zaza Pachulia) before the fan voting closed, but he receives his just desserts as one of three representatives for the NBA-best 42-4 Warriors.

On the Eastern Conference side, Jimmy Butler's superstar turn during this 2015-16 season wasn't enough for him to overtake fan favorite and Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade for a starting selection. However, the coaches went with the no-brainer and selected Butler to his second straight All-Star team.
