The 2016 NBA All-Star Game will be in Toronto, and it will be the 18th and final All-Star game in the historic career of Lakers guard Kobe Bryant.

Bryant, who of course announced earlier this season that he would retire after this year, was the leading vote-getter 1,981,614 votes. Bryant was also the leading vote-getter in 2003, 2011, and 2013.

Kobe will be joined by Thunder forward Kevin Durant and Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard in the Western Conference front court, while Warriors guard Stephen Curry joins the West back court alongside Thunder guard Russell Westbrook.

In the Eastern Conference, Raptors guard Kyle Lowry will be joined by Heat guard Dwyane Wade in the East’s back court. Cavaliers small forward LeBron James, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, and Pacers forward Paul George are the front court in the East.

We’ve already told you that Bryant is making his 18th all-star team. Here’s how everyone stacks up on their all-star selections:

Kawhi Leonard: 1st

Kevin Durant: 7th

Stephen Curry: 3rd

Russell Westbrook: 5th

Kyle Lowry: 2nd

Dwyane Wade: 12th

LeBron James: 12th

Paul George: 3rd

Carmelo Anthony: 9th

The NBA all-star reserves will be announced during next week. We’ll share our predictions for the reserves by the time the weekend is over.
