This weekend, the NBA All-Star Weekend, most players will be able to get plenty of rest, while fans will be able to see their voted stars perform on the all-star stage.In the past 75 years of NBA history, the All-Star Game has gone through 70 years of history, and the star players, big and small, have appeared on this dazzling stage.Many of them only made their first appearance, so let’s pick out 10 of them and see why they made the cut.Artest was named to his first All-Star game at the age of 24 in Los Angeles in 2004.In fact, he was good enough to be a leading defensive player that season, averaging 18.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists while averaging 2.1 steals.After all, the Pacers were led by Shaquille O ‘Neal jr., so as a second-team player, Artest was worthy of all-star selection with those numbers.He was also named defensive Player of the Year that year and was selected to the third and first team all-defensive teams, which speaks for itself.However, due to the Auburn Mountain brawl incident, Artest’s career from then on to a turning point, even though later in the Kings, rockets have good play, but he has bid farewell to the main stage.Only seven points, three rebounds and three assists from the 2004 All-Star game.Raheem retired in 2008 because of injuries, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t have a great career.As a rookie with the Grizzlies, he averaged 20 points per game for six seasons, which speaks for himself.It was in the 2001-02 season, after moving back to Atlanta, that he averaged 21.2 points and nine rebounds per game in the top post, earning him recognition from fans and NBA officials and earning his only all-star ticket.He also scored nine points and six rebounds on 4-of-4 shooting in Philadelphia.If yi jianlian had followed the Milwaukee Bucks when he entered the NBA, many fans would have known Michael Redd, the owner of the Bucks at the time.In fact, Redd was a second-round pick, but he took his chance and edged out Ray Allen to become the bucks’ core.Six career seasons of 20+, proved that Reed is indeed an excellent sharpshooter.In 2003-04, Redd averaged 21.7 points and 5 rebounds per game, making the third team at the end of the season and also playing in the Los Angeles All-Star game.He scored 13 points from the spot and made the east’s last shot.Jamal Mashburn, who started out with the Dallas Mavericks, was once known as the Dallas “3J” with Jim Jackson and Jason Kidd, but not only did they not make their mark, they eventually fell out over a woman.In the end, the fed up team kicked them out one by one.He moved to the Hornets after four years with the Heat, where he found his early edge, averaging 21.6 points and 6.1 rebounds in 2002-03 as New Orleans clinched the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference and made the playoffs for the fourth straight year, making all three selections.Perhaps to his credit, he also made his only All-Star appearance that year, witnessing Jordan’s final All-Star game performance.5. Peter Kenyon Martin, if not because of injury, he might still be flying super high-flyers dun land, although the career has not been able to develop stable shooting ability, but expensive for the 2000 champions Martin, but the nets for kidd scored twice to the NBA finals, whether face shaquille o ‘neal or Duncan, he has a good performance.In 2004, he was an All-Star after averaging 16.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game.He scored 17 points and grabbed seven rebounds on the Los Angeles arena.Unfortunately, it was also his only All-Star game performance.After entering the league in 2004, Harris became the “speed kid” on the court because of his amazing running speed. His strong impact once helped the Mavericks beat many strong opponents in the playoffs, and finally reached the Finals.In 2008, however, he was sent to the Nets in exchange for Jason Kidd in search of a pace-setting star.In 2008-09, Harris lived up to his talents, averaging 21.3 points, 6.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game.With this excellent performance, he also became a member of the Eastern Conference All-star, on the court to perform.It may seem strange to many that Kirilenko has only been selected for one All-Star game in his career.By now, the AK-47 would be the toast of the league.Also in 2003-04, with The departure of Malone, Stockton chose to retire, the aging Jazz needed a new leader, and AK47 stepped up at this moment.He averaged 16.5 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 2.8 blocks per game, making him the most versatile player in the NBA at the time.Unfortunately, the Jazz missed the playoffs by only one game that year.Kirilenko, however, was selected for the All-Star game, a major relief.Veteran Rockets fans will be familiar with Juwan Howard when he and Tracy McGrady moved to Houston in the summer of 2004.Although his personal ability has passed its peak, his attitude of working hard and not complaining has won the affection of Chinese fans.In fact, he was the first player in NBA history to sign a $100 million contract. It was his 22.1 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 1995-96 that made the Wizards willing to offer a big contract.He also made the All-Star game that year, scoring two points and grabbing six rebounds.When it comes to Redd, we have to mention another player, Mo Williams. There was a very interesting saying in the past that the two players relied too much on singles.In 2009, though, momo developed into a very good shooter alongside James.He averaged a career-high 17.8 points per game and shot 43.6 percent from 3-point range. In addition to the cavaliers’ record, Mo also made it to the All-Star game, and scored 12 points, a remarkable performance.In 2009-10, the NBA officially drafted Chris Kaman to the All-Star game due to Brandon Roy’s injury.Kaman has made only one All-Star appearance in his 13-year career.Still, he deserved it that year, averaging 18.5 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks, and because of Yao’s injury, the only center in the Western Conference was Amare Stoudemire, which gave Kaman an opportunity.
