Harrison Barnes and Klay Thompson Will Participate In All-Star Weekend

The Golden State Warriors will be well represented in Houston at the All-Star Weekend, which will start on February 15th and run through the 17th.

David Lee was named as a reserve for the Western Conference team on Thursday, then Stephen Curry was invited to participate in the 3-Point Shootout. Curry, an All-Star game snub, is uncertain whether he will participate.

Lastly, on Wednesday  the roster for the Rookies versus Sophomore game were released. The Rookies’s roster, headlined by Damian Lillard and Anthony Davis, also includes Harrison Barnes.

Barnes isn’t on Lillard’s or Davis’s level, but he’s averaging a modest nine points per game, which ranks eighth amongst all rookies.

As for the Sophomore’s roster, highlighted by Kyrie Irving, also includes Klay Thompson. Thompson, fresh off a career-best game against the Cavaliers on Tuesday (32 points), is averaging 16.5 points this year, which is the fourth-best mark amongst Sophomores.
