The NBA All-Star starters have been revealed and one former Kentucky Wildcat again finds himself apart of the bunch.

New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is one of five starters on the Western Conference squad in the 2017 NBA All-Star Game. Davis, who starred at Kentucky in their championship season of 2011-12, is an All-Star for the fourth time and, consequently, the fourth consecutive season as well (2014-2017).

AD has battled injuries this season but has still been quite terrific. In 40 games played, the Chicago native is averaging 28.8 points and 12.1 rebounds per game while shooting 50 percent from the field.

Davis joins Golden State Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, James Harden of the Houston Rockets and Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs in the starting five. The 2017 NBA All-Star Game will take place coincidentally in New Orleans at the Smoothie King Center on February 19, 2017.
