Jayson Tatum, as expected, is an All-Star for the fourth year in a row. And for the third straight season, he’s a starter.
Tatum will start as part of the NBA’s new team selection system in the 2023 All-Star Game on Feb. 19. For the first time in history, team captains/starters LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo will draft players from the pool of both starters and reserves right before the game. So, while Tatum was named one of five starters from the Eastern Conference, he will inevitably have some Western Conference teammates and could play for Team LeBron.
Jaylen Brown, meanwhile, was not named a starter for the east. But he’s a top candidate to be named a reserve when those are announced on Feb. 2. It’ll be interesting to see if he and Tatum end up on opposite teams in the All-Star Game.
