Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant of the Lakers will also be teammates in the starting lineup of the NBA All-Star game Feb. 10 in Philadelphia.

Toronto's Vince Carter won the overall balloting and Washington's Michael Jordan made it for a 13th time.

"I could use the rest, obviously, but when the fans vote you in, it's a responsibility of upholding and living up to what they expect," Jordan said.

Jordan and Carter will be joined on the Eastern Conference team by Boston's Antoine Walker and Philadelphia's Allen Iverson and Dikembe Mutombo. O'Neal and Bryant will be joined on the Western Conference team by Minnesota's Kevin Garnett, San Antonio's Tim Duncan and Houston's Steve Francis.

Reserves will be announced later in the week.
