nba game_NBA Betting_NBA All-Star Game: which players have made the most appearances?
After last year’s game, both James and the late Kobe Bryant had been selected on 18 occasions, but the latter missed three of them in 2010, 2014 and 2015. To give you some perspective, since its inception back in 1951 there have been 443 players selected for the NBA All-Star game, but of those only 302 have been selected more than once.
Now, here we are with James about to pass the great Kareem in All-Star appearances, as he will now move to 19 barring any unforeseen circumstance. Incidentally, he also holds the record for the most starts in the All-Star game which now stands at 18. This marks yet another incredible achievement in what has been an unprecedented season for James and interestingly enough, at Kareem’s expense. If you missed it, James took his seat on the throne atop the league’s all-time scoring list, when he passed Abdul-Jabbar’s record of 38,387 points. James now sits at 38,390 and will assumedly go on to score many more before his sensational career comes to an end.
