New, comments

No surprise. The Houston Rockets will not have a starter in the 2016 NBA All-Star Game.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The 2015-2016 Houston Rockets have been disappointing to say the least. Add more more disappointment to the growing list is the fact that no Rockets were selected to start for the Western Conference in the 2016 NBA All-Star Game.

Rocket guard James Harden finished with 430,777 votes in fifth place for Western Conference backcourt and Dwight Howard finished with 219,761 votes in 13th place for Western Conference frontcourt.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant finished with the most votes with 1,891,614 votes. This will be Bryant's 18th All-Star Game selection and his final as he plans to retire after the 2015-16 season.

The Western Conference All-Star starters are Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (1,604,325 votes), Oklahoma CIty Thunder Russell Westbrook (772,009), Bryant, San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard (782,339), and Thunder forward Kevin Durant (980,787).

The Eastern Conference All-Star starters are the Miami Heat's guard Dwyane Wade (941,466), Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (646,441), Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (1,089,206), Indiana Pacers forward Paul George (711,595), and New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony (567,348).

The 2016 All-Star game will be played in Toronto on Feb. 14.
