The Most All-Star Selections From The 2003 NBA Draft: LeBron James Only Missed The Game In His Rookie Season

The 2003 NBA Draft had arguably the most talented young players in NBA history. The likes of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony all headlined a talented class and they certainly impacted the game on a global scale. But since 2003, which players have had the most All-Star selections?

By selecting every player who made an All-Star Team after getting drafted in 2003 or later, here are the 9 players with the most All-Star selections since 2003.

9. Mo Williams - 1 All-Star Selection

All-Star Season Statistics: 17.8 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 4.1 APG, 0.9 SPG, 43.6% 3-PT FG

Mo Williams

Mo Williams is mainly known for his role as LeBron James' sidekick during the Cleveland Cavaliers' days. LeBron was consistently leading the Cavaliers to one of the best records in the NBA and the play of Williams cannot be ignored.

In the 2009 season, Williams earned his first and only All-Star Team selection by averaging 17.8 PPG on sensational shooting from deep. As a spot-up shooter and reliable scorer, Williams was one of The King's best teammates ever.

8. Josh Howard - 1 All-Star Selection

All-Star Season Statistics: 18.9 PPG, 6.8 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1.2 SPG, 38.5% 3-PT FG

Josh Howard

Josh Howard was a solid servant for the Dallas Mavericks, playing seasons with the franchise. Howard broke new grounds in his career by making his first All-Star Team in 2007. Howard averaged 18.9 PPG and was a steady scorer all season long next to regular-season MVP Dirk Nowitzki.

Howard and the Mavericks suffered one of the greatest upsets in NBA history when they fell to the #8 seed Golden State Warriors in the first round. Still, Howard's play was invaluable for Dallas that year and he is a major reason why they finished with the #1 seed.

7. Kyle Korver - 1 All-Star Selection

All-Star Season Statistics: 12.1 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 2.6 APG, 0.7 SPG, 49.2% 3-PT FG

Kyle Korver's Incredible Family Tradition Revolving Around The Letter K.

Kyle Korver will go down in history as one of the best pure shooters and his marksmanship was evident during the 2015 season when he made his first and only All-Star Team. Korver almost shot 50% from deep, an astonishing statistic.

Korver was part of an excellent Atlanta Hawks team that had 4 All-Stars in one season. The Hawks were the best regular-season team in the league, sharing the ball and making spectacular team plays. Korver's shooting was in the middle of that.

6. Chris Kaman - 1 All-Star Selection

All-Star Season Statistics: 18.5 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 1.6 APG, 0.5 SPG, 1.2 BPG

Chris Kaman

Chris Kaman was an impactful center when he made his first All-Star Team. Kaman is a 7-foot center who plays below the rim but has a ton of strength and skill in the paint. Kaman averaged a near double-double for the Los Angeles Clippers, who desperately needed Kaman's consistent play on both ends of the floor.

Kaman managed to play a total of seasons since 2003, but his best season was easily his first All-Star season and true Clippers fans will remember the powerhouse center nailing his jump hook consistently.

5. David West - 2 All-Star Selections

David West was one of the most consistent power forwards in the NBA during his time with the New Orleans Hornets. In fact, he was one of the most underrated players in the NBA. Averaging 20.8 PPG and 8.7 during his two All-Star seasons, West formed a dominant partnership with superstar point guard Chris Paul.

David West is a fan favorite in New Orleans and one of the best Hornets to have ever played, so it is not surprising to see him appear 5th on this list. West made a total of two All-Star Teams, but the remaining players will be Hall of Famers when it is all said and done.

4. Carmelo Anthony - 10 All-Star Selections

Scoring phenom Carmelo Anthony will not be appreciated until he finally hangs it up. Melo is one of his generation's greatest scorers, as evidenced by his scoring average. Anthony had no weakness on offense and could score inside and outside.

Unfortunately for Anthony, he lost his All-Star skills with age, but he will also be remembered for dominating the scoring charts with the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks. Anthony made a whopping 10 All-Star Teams since 2003, and he deserved each one of them.

3. Chris Bosh - 11 All-Star Selections

All-Star Seasons Statistics: 20.3 PPG, 8.6 RPG, 2.1 APG, 0.8 SPG, 1.0 BPG

Chris Bosh

Amazingly, the next three players all played on one team at some point. Chris Bosh, one of his generation's most talented power forwards, made 11 All-Star Teams as a member of the Toronto Raptors and Miami Heat.

With the Raptors, Bosh kept Toronto relevant when they had nothing to celebrate. With Miami, he helped LeBron James and company win two straight NBA titles. Bosh accomplished a lot in his career, and his 11 All-Star selections are truly impressive considering the sacrifices he made when playing in Miami.

2. Dwyane Wade - 13 All-Star Selections

What can be said about Dwyane Wade that hasn't been said already? Arguably the 3rd greatest shooting guard to have ever lived, Wade dominated both ends of the floor like very few players in history. Wade captured three NBA titles since 2003 and a Finals MVP for the ages in 2006.

Dwyane Wade is one of the greatest athletes at the shooting guard position in NBA history and also one of the best two-way. Wade accomplished everything on an individual and team level, and he is second on this list behind his former teammate, LeBron James.

1. LeBron James - 17 All-Star Selections

All-Star Seasons Statistics: 27.4 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 7.5 APG, 1.6 SPG, 0.8 BPG

LaVar Ball Says LeBron James Has Two Years Of Playing Really Good Basketball

LeBron James is the greatest player in his generation. What he has accomplished, very few have ever come close. As the best small forward ever and the most dominant superstar since Michael Jordan, James has a whopping 17 All-Star Team selections to his name since he was drafted.

4 NBA titles, 4 Finals MVPs, 4 MVP Awards and a host of memories is what LeBron James means to the NBA. The King is also one of the most unselfish stars in history, and his style of play is the reason why 4 players on this list have been teammates of LeBron at some point in his Hall of Fame career.
