NBA All-Star Game rosters 2014: Western Conference starters named

The NBA will be announcing the starting five for each conference on Thursday night for next month’s NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans. The Western Conference was the first to earn who their starters would be and, as you would expect, they have an impressive starting five.

The most questionable selection to the starting five could be Kobe Bryant, who missed the beginning of the season as he recovered from a torn Achilles tendon.

Who made the cut for the West?

Here are the starters for the Western Conference in the 2014 NBA All-Star Game:

Guard: Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
Guard: Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors
Forward: Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder
Forward: Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers
Forward: Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves
