With the NBA All-Star game right around the corner, Thursday will mark the day that the reserves for both the Eastern and Western conference All-Stars will be released. There is a lot of buzz about just who is going to make the team, especially out L.A., where the Lakers and Clippers have viable chances at adding more All-Stars.
Speculation of four L.A. players as Western Conference starters seems likely in Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, and Andrew Bynum. That leaves Pau Gasol on the possible reserves list, though he brother Marc has been having a bit better of a year and would likely be more deserving to go. Should be an interesting choice to be made.
The announcement will be made at 1 p.m. PT (4 p.m. ET) on the TNT Network.
