This is fourth consecutive year as an All-Star, he will be starting for the third time. Griffin will be starting alongside Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Bryant is said to not want to participate due to multiple injuries which leaves one spot in the starting group.
Griffin had this to say about being voted into the starting lineup. “I am honored to be selected a starter for the All-Star Game. It means a lot for it to come from the fans and I look forward to representing the Clippers in New Orleans.”
Griffin finished with 688,466 votes, which ranked fourth in the West.
Griffin is even in the MVP conversation even though it’s all, but impossible to pass Kevin Durant but we shall see.
The 63rd NBA All-Star Game will be exclusively televised on TNT from New Orleans Arena on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014.
