LeBron James achieved a monumental milestone as he secured his 20th NBA All-Star Game selection, breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record of 19 appearances in the exhibition. The announcement of the 2024 NBA All-Star Game starters on Thursday was highlighted by James’ remarkable feat.

This year’s All-Star Game will revert to the traditional East vs. West matchup, with LeBron James acting as the captain for the Western Conference. Joining him in the starting lineup are Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Dončić, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokić, and Phoenix Suns forward Kevin Durant.

On the Eastern Conference side, the starting lineup features Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum, Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton, and Milwaukee Bucks teammates Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard.

LeBron James has maintained a perfect attendance record at the All-Star Game since his rookie season, boasting three All-Star Game MVPs and serving as a captain for the past six years during the draft-style selection process. His last All-Star Game loss occurred in 2017 when the East faced the West.

LeBron James, at 39 years old, continues to defy expectations with his outstanding performance, averaging 25-7-7 on over 60% true shooting. His 20th All-Star selection solidifies his legacy as one of the greatest players in NBA history.
