The Eastern Conference starters feature Miami's LeBron James and New York's Amar'e Stoudemire at forward, Miami's Dwyane Wade and Chicago's Derrick Rose at guard and Orlando star Dwight Howard at center.
The injured Yao Ming was voted in as the Western Conference starting center, but he will miss the game. His replacement will be announced by David Stern after the reserves are revealed. Los Angeles' Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul of New Orleans will be the West guards, while Denver's Carmelo Anthony and Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant will be the starting forwards.
Kobe Bryant was the top vote-getter in the NBA All-Star balloting with 2,380,016 votes.
The reserves will be announced on February 3.
