American professional basketball star LeBron James (LA Lakers) is doing his own routine of spraying magnesium carbonate powder in the air before the home game against Chicago on the 26th.

‘King’ LeBron James (40, LA Lakers) was named as the first player in the history of the National Basketball Association (NBA) to be selected as an All-Star 20 times.

As a result of the 2023-2024 season All-Star fan voting announced by the NBA Secretariat on the 26th, James received 5,098,872 votes, ranking first in the Western Conference (second overall). As a result, James has been eligible to participate in the All-Star Game for 20 consecutive years since the 2004-2005 season, which was the second year since his NBA debut. In the 2003-2004 season, when he debuted in the NBA, he was only able to participate in the ‘Rookie Challenge’.

Until last season, James and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (77) were tied for the record for most All-Star selections (19). Kobe Bryant (1978-2022) ranks third with 18 selections. ‘Basketball Emperor’ Michael Jordan (61) was selected as an All-Star 14 times (tied for 7th place) during the 15 seasons he played in the NBA. The Eastern Conference’s ‘Greek Express’ Giannis Antetokounmpo (30, Milwaukee) took first place in this season’s NBA All-Star fan voting. Antetokounmpo was selected as an All-Star for the 8th time, receiving 5,427,874 votes, about 330,000 more than James. Antetokounmpo and James will serve as captains of the East and West teams during the All-Star Game held at Indiana Home Stadium on February 19. The two players were captains of both teams last season as well. 토토사이트
