Brooklyn’s D’Angelo Russell Named 2019 NBA All-Star

Brooklyn Nets point guard D'Angelo Russell will make his All-Star debut this season after Commissioner Adam Silver named him as an injury replacement for indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo. He is the 15th Nets player to earn an All-Star selection and the first since Joe Johnson was named an Eastern Conference reserve in 2014.

Russell has enjoyed a breakout season in his fourth year as a professional. But Russell is having an impressive season as well.

The Science paper uses over 700 measurements from Curiosity's accelerometers, taken between October 2012 and June 2017. But if this was the case, then the weight of all that sediment would have squashed down the bottom layers.

Drafted second overall in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft out of Ohio State, Russell was traded to the Nets from the Los Angeles Lakers along with Timofey Mozgov for Brook Lopez and Kyle Kuzma during the 2017 draft, the same day the Lakers drafted another point guard in Lonzo Ball. Russell spent two seasons in L.A. before moving to Brooklyn just before the 2017 NBA Draft. The lefty is averaging 19.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game while shooting 43.8 percent from the field, 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 80.8 percent from the free-throw line. Team captains LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks will pick their squads during the All-Star Player Draft on February 7.

The main event will kick off Sunday, Feb. 17 at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C.
