NBA All Star Game Predictions

The annual showdown between the top players in the league against one another is fast approaching. Each team is led by 2 of the NBA Greats in Lebron James and rising superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. Both captains were honored in drafting their teams, a relatively new format to the All-Star Game. Both captains will lead teams that they hope to win to bring what seems like pride to their conference as this is nearly a showdown between East and West.

Team Lebron:

Anthony Davis – New Orleans Pelicans

With many first time all stars and returning veterans, this All-Star game will certainly not disappoint. This year’s All-Star Game will be action-packed with several potential NBA Championship matchups set to line up against one another. The Lakers and Rockets duos will be set to play Giannis-Middleton, Adebayo-Butler, Siakam-Lowry and other stars from the East as tense rivalry showdowns emerge. Team Lebron used his first pick towards teammate Anthony Davis to show the world that the Lakers tandem is not one to be reckoned with. Lebron was able to draft reigning Rookie of the Year Luka Doncic and James Harden a few rounds later with what will be exciting to see them play together. Lebron certainly went for an offensive powerhouse of a team while Giannis has former Defensive Player of the year, Rudy Gobert, Big Men Embiid and Siakam that can dominate the paint and anybody that comes their way. The defensive threats of the East will lead a young group of players on Team Giannis going against a more veteran-stacked team that Lebron has. East vs. West, Newcomers vs. Veterans, this all-star game will be one for the ages. Team Lebron with years more of experience will come out on top as many of their aging players are still playing at an elite level in the midst of their primes. Lebron will lead his team to victory as the potential lineup of Lebron-Davis-Doncic-Harden-Leonard will emerge victorious against anyone who would even think about coming their way. The game will not be as high scoring as typical due to the defensive capabilities of Team Giannis, but it will definitely be exciting. Team Lebron will win by 20 plus points against the young Team Giannis.
