Al Jefferson, Kemba Walker not voted All-Star starters

The results are in.

The NBA released the results of this year's All-Star voting, and there will not be a Hornet starting for the Eastern Conference All-Stars. However, hometown hero Stephen Curry was not only voted in as a starter, but he was also this year's leading vote-getter.

A Hornet could be voted in as a substitute by the league's coaches, and if that's the case, my money's on Kemba Walker. Walker recently won player of the week honors after leading the Hornets on a five-game winning streak. Al Jefferson's been good, but his numbers are down across the board and his injury likely won't help his case.

The starters are as follows:

EAST

John Wall, WAS
Kyle Lowry, TOR
LeBron James, CLE
Carmelo Anthony, NYK
Pau Gasol, CHI

WEST

Stephen Curry, GSW
Kobe Bryant*, LAL
Anthony Davis, NOP
Blake Griffin, LAC
Marc Gasol, MEM
* Bryant has a torn rotator cuff and may not be able to participate. He would be replaced if this is the case.

What do you think of this year's starting fives?
