Howard tops East All-Stars

NEW YORK — Magic center Dwight Howard, the leading vote-getter in the Eastern Conference with nearly 2.1 million, will join Heat teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in taking on Kobe Bryant and the West at the All-Star Game.

The league announced the starters Thursday.

Joining the East trio is Derrick Rose, the Bulls' first All-Star starter since Michael Jordan, and Amare Stoudemire, the Knicks' first starter in nearly two decades.

Bryant earned his 13th straight All-Star selection for the Feb. 20 game at his home arena. He got 2.3 million votes from fans.

The reserves will be chosen by the coaches and named Feb. 3.
