Celtics were disappointed last year when Al Horford didn't land an All-Star berth. Horford muscles his way to his fifth All-Star nod this year while leading the first-place Celtics in rebounding and assists. He's also just outside the NBA's top 10 in 3-point percentage.

The Thunder only get one All-Star, reigning MVP Russell Westbrook, who was named a reserve. Paul George is among the notable snubs. It's the first time since 2010 that Carmelo Anthony isn't an All-Star, breaking a streak of eight straight appearances.

Here's Spurs coach Gregg Popovich discussing LeBron James potentially reaching 30,000 career points Tuesday against the Spurs. "Well, it's an awesome achievement," Popovich said.i "But what else do you say about LeBron that we haven't said many times before? Just a great, great competitor and a great player." Can the Spurs hold him to 6 points (James needs 7 points to reach the milestone)? "While Kawhi's [Leonard] out, Kyle's [Anderson] got that job," Popovich said. "So I gave him an over-under. If he holds him within standard deviation… so we've got the analytical guys trying to figure out what standard deviation is. So I think maybe if he scores less than 12, then Kyle keeps that position forever; like a Lou Gehrig thing."

Kyle Lowry will now earn $200K if he plays in 23 more games. Lowry has an All-Star bonus in his contract that is tied in with games played (65). Lowry also has a $500K bonus if the Raptors reach the Conference Finals and an additional $500K if Toronto earns a spot in the NBA Finals. Toronto will be $800K below the tax if Lowry reaches the games criteria/All-Star bonus.
