According to the announcement at NBA.com this Thursday, January 24, 2013, thirty NBA head coaches have selected the 14 players to be included in the 2013 NBA All-Star reserves, including two guards, three frontcourt players and two other players. To be fair, they were not allowed to choose from their own team.

For the Eastern Conference All-Star 2013 team, five of them were first-timers which include Tyson Chandler (New York Knicks), Paul George (Indiana Pacers), Jrue Holiday (Philadelphia 76ers), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers), and Joakim Noah (Chicago Bulls); while it will be the second time for Luol Deng (Chicago Bulls).

For their starters, it will be Carmelo Anthony (New York Knicks), Kevin Garnett (Boston Celtics), Rajon Rondo (Boston Celtics), Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat), and obviously, LeBron James (Miami Heat). Not to mention, Chris Bosh (Miami Heat) will be joining the team, who is on his 8th nod on the NBA All-Star Game.

On the other hand, the Western Conference All-Star 2013 team include James Harden (Houston Rockets), LaMarcus Aldridge (Portland Trail Blazers), David Lee (Golden State Warriors), Tony Parker (San Antonio Spurs), Russell Westbrook (OKC), Zach Randolph (Memphis Grizzlies), and Duncan, of course.

This will be the first time for Harden in his first season with the Rockets, while it will be the second All-Star nod for Aldridge, Lee, and Randolph. Westbrook is on his third, while it will be fifth for Parker. The team starters will be Kevin Durant (OKC), Blake Griffin (L.A. Clippers), Dwight Howard (L.A. Lakers), Chris Paul (L.A. Clippers), and Kobe Bryant.

As noted by NBA, the 62nd NBA All-Star Game will be held on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013 (8 p.m. ET) at the Toyota Center in Houston, which will exclusively be aired on TNT and on ESPN Radio in the US.
