Of the players that were selected for the 2001 All-Star game, ten are still in the league:
McGrady, Carter, Hill, Allen, Kidd, Kobe, Duncan, Shaq, Garnett, and McDyess. (Or is it eleven, is Stackhouse on a roster?)
Out of those ten, four participated in the 2011 All-star game: Ray Allen, Kobe, Duncan, and Garnett.
Anyone care to take bets on which players from the 2011 squad will still be around (or starting even) on the 2021 squad?
I’d say quite a few have a chance- gotta love the young guys here- Durant, Rose, Griffin, Westbrook (if he doesn’t critically injure himself on some crazy dunk first). That being said, who knows what twists and turns the career of a professional athlete can take. I bet if we asked the same question in 2001 plenty of people would have thought McGrady and Carter still had a chance to make the squad in 2011.
