Raptors' Kyle Lowry selected for 4th straight NBA All-Star Game

Jan 23 2018, 11:35 pm

Another year, another All-Star Game selection for Kyle Lowry.

The Raptors point guard has made habit of attending the annual event reserved for the NBA’s elite, officially being named an All-Star on Tuesday. For Lowry, it’s his fourth straight selection.

Once again he’ll be joined by teammate DeMar DeRozan, who was voted into the game last week. Though they might not play on the same team.

This year’s All-Star Game in Los Angeles won’t be an East vs West showdown, as the league takes a page out of the NHL’s playbook. Team captains Steph Curry and LeBron James will select players from either conference for their teams in a real-life fantasy draft.

Lowry is averaging 17 points, 6.7 assists, and 6 rebounds per game this season, helping the Raptors to the fourth-best record in the NBA.
