Eastern Conference NBA All-Stars Starting 5

  • PG– Tyrese Haliburton
  • SG- Damian Lillard
  • SF- Jayson Tatum
  • PF- Giannis Antetokounmpo
  • C- Bam Adebayo

The Eastern Conference All-Star team will have an abundance of shooting and scoring talent, including a starting lineup that features Tyrese Haliburton, Damian Lillard, Jayson Tatum, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Bam Adebayo.

Eastern Conference NBA All-Stars Position Groups

The starting lineups for the All-Star Game often don’t have specific positions assigned to the players. For instance, instead of the Eastern Conference having a point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, and center, it will have two guards, two forwards, and one center. Throughout the game, the lineups become even more unlike the regular season, as they will sometimes not even have a center in the game.

Eastern Conference NBA All-Stars Point Guards

Numerous point guards are rostered on the Eastern Conference All-Star team, including Trae Young, Tyrese Haliburton, Damian Lillard, Tyrese Maxey, and Jalen Brunson. While several players from this list can play off the ball, the point guard spot makes up most of the roster. Haliburton and Lillard are starting, so they will see the first chunk of minutes but expect Doc Rivers to rotate in Maxey, Young, and Brunson.

Eastern Conference NBA All-Stars Shooting Guards

Damian Lillard or Tyrese Haliburton will be the starting shoot guard for the Eastern Conference All-Star team. The starting lineups for both All-Star teams are not position-specific, so one of those two players will be more off-ball than the other. Interestingly enough, Donovan Mitchell and Jaylen Brown (if he is considered more of a two-guard than a small forward) are the only shooting guards rostered. Even Mitchell has had stints at the lead guard spot.

Eastern Conference NBA All-Stars Small Forwards

Jayson Tatum will be the starter for the Eastern Conference All-Star team on Sunday night. Tatum joins Jaylen Brown (listed as shooting guard above) and Scottie Barnes as the only small forwards on the roster. However, plenty of players can move from either the shooting guard or power forward positions to play at the three.

Eastern Conference NBA All-Stars Power Forwards

The captain, Giannis Antetokounmpo, will be the starting power forward in the All-Star game for the Eastern Conference. The head coach of the Eastern Conference All-Star team, Doc Rivers, can deploy Giannis, Tatum, Barnes, and Paolo Banchero in the power forward slot throughout the game.

Eastern Conference NBA All-Stars Centers

With Joel Embiid listed as out for the All-Star game, Bam Adebayo will step in and start at center. Adebayo will be the only center rostered for the Eastern Conference since Embiid is injured, meaning that the team will mostly deploy guard and forward-heavy lineups. Giannis Antetokounmpo will more than likely see time at center whenever Adebayo is not on the floor.

Eastern Conference NBA All-Stars Starting Five FAQ

Who Is Eastern Conference’s Head Coach?

The head coach for the 2024 Eastern Conference All-Star team is Doc Rivers. Despite coaching just ten games for the Milwaukee Bucks, Rivers gets the nod to coach the east due to a bizarre rule that does not allow consecutive All-Star appearances for coaches. In this case, Joe Mazzulla (Boston Celtics) helped the Celtics enter the All-Star break with the best record in the Eastern Conference for the second straight season, so he is ineligible.

Who Is Eastern Conference’s Starting Point Guard?

The starting point guard for the Eastern Conference is a bit unclear, as the criteria for being selected is not by specific position (i.e., point guard, shooting guard, small forward, etc…) but rather by position groups (i.e., guards, forwards, center.) Therefore, either Damian Lillard or Tyrese Haliburton could be considered the starting point guard for the Eastern Conference.

Who Is Eastern Conference’s Captain?

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the captain of the Eastern Conference team and will be starting alongside Jayson Tatum, Tyrese Haliburton, Damian Lillard, and Bam Adebayo, who is filling in for the injured Joel Embiid.
