The NBA announced the 2023 All-Star starters on January 27th. Among them is former Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell. The name Jazz fans were hoping to hear announced, however, was Lauri Markkanen. Markkanen hopes to get his first All-Star bid this season, but climbing into the starting lineup is very difficult. His competition included the likes of LeBron James, Nikola Jokic, Anthony Davis, Domantas Sabonis, and Zion Williamson.
Three parties determine the voting for the All-Star starters. The fans account for 50% of the vote, while the media and players each account for 25%.
