Thompson and Green earn NBA All-Star nods
The Warriors became the eighth team in NBA history to send four players to the All-Star game Thursday.
Klay Thompson and Draymond Green were chosen by coaches as reserves for the Western Conference. This is Thompson and Green’s second and third straight All-Star appearance respectively and they will join starters Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant on the West squad.
The All-Star quartet will be even more comfortable as they’ll play for Steve Kerr and his staff.
The last time a single team has had four All-Stars was just two years ago, when the Atlanta Hawks sent Al Horford, Jeff Teague, Paul Milsap and Kyle Korver to the All-Star game, although all those players were selected as reserves.
The All-Star game will be held at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans Feb. 19.
