With Kobe being voted to start the all star game, but out with injury, we knew someone had to take his place in the starting lineup. It was announced today that James Harden will start and that is exactly who it should be. That now means the starting five for the West will be Harden, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Kevin love and Blake Griffin. Out of the bench players for the squad, picking Harden to start just makes the most sense with what he has done this season. Can’t wait for the game on Sunday night, it should be full of highlight reel type plays.
