NBA All-Star Game 2020: LeBron James passes Kobe Bryant for most All-Star starts in NBA history

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James has made All-Star Game history.

The starters have been announced for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game and for the 16th time in his career, James has been named to the starting lineup. His 16th career All-Star start breaks his tie with former Lakers star Kobe Bryant, giving LeBron the most starts in NBA All-Star Game history.

James is already the all-time All-Star Game leader in points scored (362), field goals made (150) and 3-point field goals made (36), and he's one of four players in NBA history to record a triple-double at the All-Star Game.

Adding the most All-Star starts to his resume is another impressive accomplishment, but he still trails some greats in other similar feats. Take a look at a few of those that LeBron may pass over the next few years:

Other All-Star records LeBron could pass

• Most consecutive All-Star Game selections: Kobe Bryant, 18

Most All-Star Games played: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 18

Most All-Star Game selections: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 19

James is joined by his Lakers teammate Anthony Davis in the Western Conference team, becoming the first Laker teammates to start the All-Star Game since Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard in 2013.

The 2020 NBA All-Star Game will be on Feb. 16 at the United Center in Chicago, IL.
