International players at 2021 NBA All-Star Game: 4 starters and 4 reserves

2021 ASG starters and reserves (Domantas Sabonis will replace injured K.Durant, while D.Booker will replace A.Davis):

STARTERS: Giannis, Jokic, Embiid, Doncic
RESERVES: Gobert, Vucevic, Sabonis, Simmons

The big picture about international players 2020-21 season is actually even better than ASG rosters suggests because right now out of TOP6 2021 NBA MVP candidates 4 are international players (according to the Vegas odds)!

Also, 4 out of TOP5 candidates for the DPOY award right now are foreigners (Gobert, Turner, Simmons, Embiid, Giannis)!

BTW 8 international players in ASG are tied all-time record from the previous 2020 ASG when also 4 starters and 4 reserves are foreign players. 30y old Vucevic is the oldest out of these 8 players so we maybe should expect to see soon double-digit international players in an all-star game with Siakam or Murray or SGA or Porzingins or Ayton or... join them!

Giannis Antetocounmpo becomes in 2021 first ever international player to win ASG MVP Award! He won it on impressive way shooting 16-16 without single miss.
