NBA All-Star Game 2019 rosters: Colleges most represented on Team LeBron and Team Giannis

From UCLA to Marquette, Oklahoma to Ohio State, Fresno State to Florida and everywhere in between, all but four of the 2019 group of NBA All-Stars spent time in the college ranks before they realized their professional dreams. 

Twenty-one different schools are represented among the 23 former collegiate players on this year's rosters. Texas and Kentucky both boast two former players.

Conference-wise, the SEC can point to five, split among Team LeBron and Team Giannis. The Big 12 and Pac-12 each have four.

There are former national players of the year and All-Americans, players who can exert their will on opponents, but only one will win the NBA All-Star Game MVP Award on Sunday.
