Celtics  Kevin Garnett  and Rajon Rondo  earned starting spots in the NBA All-Star Game and will take the floor for the Eastern Conference alongside some bitter rivals: Heat stars LeBron James  and Dwyane Wade , and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony.
Garnett held off Heat forward Chris Bosh, who implored his Twitter followers to vote for him but fell about 25,000 votes short. Garnett ties Kobe Bryant  and Shaquille O’Neal  for second place all-time with 15 All-Star appearances (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar  has 19).
Bryant was the leading vote-getter, with 1,591,437, in earning his NBA-record 15th consecutive starting bid. He’ll be joined in the Western Conference lineup by Lakers teammate Dwight Howard , Clippers Chris Paul  and Blake Griffin , and Thunder star Kevin Durant .
Reserves will be announced next Thursday. The game is Feb. 17 in Houston.
