Last week, fans voted in their favorite players to the NBA All-Star starting lineups and now the league’s coaches have completed the rosters, announcing who else will be joining Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and others in Houston on Feb. 17 as reserves.  Here are the complete All-Star rosters:

2013 NBA All-Star Game Rosters

Eastern Conference

Starter Appearance
LeBron James, F, MIA 9th
Carmelo Anthony, F, NYK 6th
Dwyane Wade, G, MIA 9th
Rajon Rondo, G, BOS 4th
Kevin Garnett, F, BOS 15th
Reserve Appearance
Kyrie Irving, G, CLE 1st
Jrue Holiday, G, PHI 1st
Tyson Chandler, C, NYK 1st

L. Aldridge, F, POR 2nd
David Lee, F, GS 2nd
Zach Randolph, F, MEM 2nd

Unfortunately for Jeremy Lin fans, he did not make his first All-Star team this season, but James Harden was selected for the first time in this career, so Houston fans will still have a hometown representative to cheer on.

Also making their first appearances are last year’s Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving, Jrue Holiday, Tyson Chandler, Paul George and Joakim Noah. After missing the cut for the first time in his career last season, Tim Duncan is back as a Western Conference All-Star this year, making 14 appearances in all for the Spurs’ big man.

Some notable players who didn’t make the cut include Stephen Curry, Brook Lopez and Paul Pierce. Curry, the eighth leading scorer in the entire league, has the highest points per game average (20.9) of any non-All-Star and Lopez was passed on despite helping revitalize a Nets team that is currently in playoff position in their first season in Brooklyn.

Did your favorite players make the team? If not, who do you think should have made it?

Tune in to TNT on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 8:00 Est. to watch the East and West battle it out in Houston.
