NBA All Stars: WC Starting Five

NBA All Stars: WC Starting Five

Recently, we found out that the NBA will have an All Star Game this year. The game will take place on March 7th in Atlanta. Some NBA All Stars are not looking forward to the midseason game. Lebron came out and aired his complaints citing no energy and no excitement. Nonetheless, there will be a game taking place this year. Recently, I shared my all-star predictions for the East. This week, I will give you my predictions for the West starters.

Steph Curry – Golden State Warriors

This pick should surprise nobody; Steph is having another one of his legendary seasons. He is averaging thirty points a night for the Warriors. While averaging thirty, he makes over five three-pointers a night, leading the Warriors to the West’s eighth-best record. This, paired with Steph’s fame and popularity, he will undoubtedly be a starter.

 

Luka Doncic

Luka Doncic – Dallas Mavericks

In just a few seasons, Luka Doncic has become a superstar. This year has been no different for him. He ranks seventh in points per game and has been getting it done in every statistical category. Ranking third in assists, Doncic is averaging just under ten a game. Damian Lillard would have been my second choice, but he does not have the all around play like Luka.

Lebron James – Los Angeles Lakers

No matter how little energy or excitement King James has for this game, he will be a starter for the West. Father time has not caught up to Lebron in the slightest. Lebron has also improved his three-point shot this year, making him even tougher to defend. The King is still putting in over twenty-five points a night for the defending champion and will be locked in as a Western Conference Starter.

 

Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard – Los Angeles Clippers

Another chalk pick here with Kawhi Leonard. There are a few other players who I thought about in this spot. Zion Williamson and Anthony Davis both could be in the mix for this spot too. Kawhi is doing what all of the other greats on this list are doing. He is getting in done scoring, rebounding, assists, and, most importantly, defense. Kawhi is averaging 1.8 steals a game for the Clips’. Kawhi’s 26.5 points a night should earn him his third straight all-star game start.

Nikola Jokic – Denver Nuggets

Nikola Jokic is my midseason MVP. His playstyle is so unique and effective in today’s game. Jokic is nearly averaging a triple-double this year, missing out with 8.3 assists per game. The Joker has been improving his game year after year and will earn his first all-star game start. My hottest take is that Jokic will be the game’s most valuable player as well. Jokic might let his three-ball shine a little more than usual in the exhibition game. Jokic is a Western Conference starter, book it.
