The 2018 NBA All-Star lineup is set as both the starters and reserves have been announced for this year's showpiece in Los Angeles.

New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis and Boston Celtics forward Al Horford made the Eastern Conference team.

CP3 has played 28 games which may have cost him a place on the All-Star team but his huge impact on the Rockets should have been factored in. Their rosters will be unveiled Thursday, though the selection process won't be televised.

LeBron James and Steph Curry were revealed as the two captains last week for this year's completely revamped All-Star game. It is the third-year player's first All-Star selection. The forward is averaging 7.9 assists per game, fifth-most in the National Basketball Association while ranking in the top-10 in defensive box plus/minus (2.9).

The big man has a valid argument, as he is averaging 14.3 points and a league-leading 15.0 rebounds to go along with 1.2 blocks and 1.5 steals on a Detroit squad that has looked risky at times. Rounding out the East reserves is Toronto Raptors' Kyle Lowry. The six-time All-Star leads the Spurs in points, rebounds and blocks and is the only player on the roster playing more than 27.5 minutes (33.9).

For the first time in league history, the teams will be mixed across conferences.

Washington Wizards guards John Wall and Bradley Beal and Golden State Warriors teammates Klay Thompson and Draymond Green also earned spots as seven additional players from each conference were announced by the league. In the past I've called All-Star snub lists Damian Lillard and Co. but by the tracer of the fans, D-Lil is finally an all-star!

The veteran is putting up career-highs of 23.3 points and 5.1 assists a night.
