A handful of players have been recognized for their play in the first half of the season.
And for the third straight season, Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum has been named an All-Star.
The NBA on Thursday announced reserves for the 2022 All-Star Game for the Eastern and Western Conferences, making Tatum the youngest player in franchise history to receive the honor three times.
Teammate Jaylen Brown didn’t make the cut, but here’s still a chance, with the East needing a replacement player due to captain Kevin Durant’s injury.
