WNBA names 2019 All Star Game starters; captains are Delle Donne, Wilson

Kia-Nurse By the Numbers: The case for Nurse as a WNBA All-Star
Shannon Reynolds | 14 July, 2019, 04:40

Nurse is averaging 16 points, 2.1 assists, 2.7 rebounds and one steal over 15 games, all starts, for the New York Liberty this season.

The WNBA announced Las Vegas Aces head coach Bill Laimbeer and Washington Mystics head coach Mike Thibault would serve as head coaches for the game.

A'ja Wilson is under a bit of pressure now as one of the captains of the WNBA All-Star Game.

The other All-Star starters are the Phoenix Mercury's Brittney Griner, the Seattle Storm's Natasha Howard and Jewell Loyd, the Connecticut Sun's Jonquel Jones, the Los Angeles Sparks' Chelsea Gray, Las Vegas' Kayla McBride and the New York Liberty's Kia Nurse. The 12 reserves will be announced Monday. The all-stars were selected by fans, current players and members of the media who regularly cover the league. Coaches can vote for all but their own players, selecting three guards, five frontcourt players and four others at any position.

It is Wilson's second selection in two seasons. The Washington Mystics star led the fan balloting, receiving 32,460 votes followed by Wilson with 26,475. She has started all 15 games for NY this season. In 2017, she made her All-Star debut and earned WNBA Most Improved Player honors.

Across the WNBA, Nurse ranks in the top 10 of multiple offensive categories. Thibault's Mystics are guaranteed to have the league's second-best record through July 12, so he will guide Wilson's team.

Delle Donne's team lost to Candace Parker's squad a year ago in the All-Star contest. The winningest coach in WNBA history, Thibault is a three-time WNBA Coach of the Year, most recently in 2013 with Washington.

But starting in the All-Star game for Delle Donne will depend on how fast she recovers from an injury.

"It's an honour to not only represent the New York Liberty but also my home country of Canada in the 2019 WNBA all-star game", Nurse said.
