San Antonio Spurs future Hall-of-Famer Tim Duncan finished fourth amongst Western Conference frontcourt players in the recently-concluded NBA All-Star voting process, just barely costing him a starting spot on the Western team.
As reported by Dan McCarney of My San Antonio, "Duncan, who earned 546,817 votes, finished behind New Orleans’ Anthony Davis (1,369,911), Memphis’ Marc Gasol (795,121) and the Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin (700,615). Those three will start alongside overall vote-leader Stephen Curry of Golden State and an injury replacement for the L.A. Lakers’ Kobe Bryant for the West at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 15."
On the opposite side, the Eastern Conference will field a starting five consisting of Washington's John Wall, Toronto's Kyle Lowry, Chicago's Pau Gasol, New York's Carmelo Anthony, and Cleveland's LeBron James.
Duncan will undoubtedly be selected by the league's 30 head coaches as one of three reserve frontcourt players on the squad. They will be joined by two guards and two 'wild card' selections on the squad.Back to the San Antonio Spurs Newsfeed
