The NBA has released the names of the reserves in the 2013 All-Star game, making the Miami Heat, with Chris Bosh joining LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, as the only team with three players on the rosters, while no less than six players got their first selection, five of them in the Eastern conference.

Along with Chris Bosh making his 8th All-Star game and Luol Deng making his second, the Eastern bench is filled with newcomers: Kyrie Irving, Jrue Holiday, Tyson Chandler, Joakim Noah and Paul George all making their first All-Star appearance.
