The NBA released the final roster for the 2012 NBA All-Star game this afternoon. As we previously noted, Kevin Durant was voted in as a starter. Today we learned that Russell Westbrook was selected as an All-Star reserve.
Durant will be starting his second consecutive All-Star game, while Westbrook will be playing in his second consecutive game as a reserve.
Reserve players were selected by each of the 30 NBA coaches. If any player is unable to play, David Stern will select his replacement.
