NBA legend Magic Johnson will be at the NBA's All-Star Game on February 16th, and he desperately hopes to see basketball stars Kobe Bryant, Russell Westbrook and Dwayne Wade strut their stuff. 

The continued excellence of Kevin Durant and LeBron James has made it easy to forget about the massive gaping hole of All-Star talent not playing in the NBA at the moment due to injury. 

Bryant has an outside chance of playing in the ASG as he is recovering from a fractured left knee. Westbrook also has a knee injury, whilst Wade has soreness also in his knee and has missed the Heat's last four games. 

Johnson took to Twitter to air his wishes for a true All-Star lineup for next month. 

"I hope Chris Paul, Kobe, Dwyane Wade & Russell Westbrook make it back from their injuries so I can watch them play in the ASG, cause I will be there!"

The likeliness of all three making it back might be slim at the moment, and even if Bryant is cleared to play, it's unlikely he will play a significant role in the NBA's showpiece event. 

However, everybody can only agree with the Magic man's sentiments, it would be great to see these awesome players back in action sooner rather than later.
