ESPN Panel Gives Three Heat Players First-Time All-Star Consideration for 2017
- Updated: August 30, 2016
In ESPN’s Summer Forecast released on Monday, the ESPN panel voted on which NBA players would make their first All-Star Game appearance in February 2017.
Of the many players that received votes, three Miami Heat players were selected to possibly make the Eastern Conference All-Star team for the first time.
Among the top 10 in vote-getters was Heat center Hassan Whiteside, who racked up a total of eight votes and tied Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert for ninth-most on the list.
With the most votes, Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns received 23, Milwaukee Bucks small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo notched 22, and Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan finished with 20.
After former Heat superstar and three-time NBA champion Dwyane Wade announced that he would be heading to the Chicago Bulls this offseason, the opportunity for current Miami players to step up in a big way this upcoming season is on the table for the taking.
