The 2018 NBA All-Star game is here. This year the rules are a little different.
The teams have been chosen by the top vote receivers. LeBron James and Steph Curry were this year top players, and were able to chose the teams.
Look for this game to be filled with a ton of offense. Hopefully this season, the teams can take this game serious. The past few years have been filled with nothing but highlight dunks and no defense.
Look for both teams to be loaded with talent. After all, these 24 players are considered to be the best on the planet right now. With the game being played at Staples Center, it will be a star studded event.
Team LeBron is favorite by 3.5 points in this game. LeBron did a good job in selecting his team.
The starting five for team LeBron is LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, Kyrie Irving and Andre Drummond. Drummond replace DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins is out with a torn Achillies.
The team LeBron Bench is loaded with talent, and a few injury replacement players. LeMarcus Aldridge, Bradley Beal, Goran Dragic (injury replacement), Paul George (injury replacement), Victor Oladipo, Kemba Walker (injury replacement) and Russell Westbrook.
With the team Lebron has selected, their size and strength in the painted area is going to be hard to stop. If LeBron James takes this game serious, he could be the MVP again, if not, expect Russell Westbrok to show up in front of his hometown.
Paul George also has California roots, so a big game from him could be brewing as well.
Expect team LeBron to work well together. The overall talent LeBron has drafted is going to give team Steph problems. Defense is considered wrong in the All Star game.
Look for LeBron and his crew to give the rim problems from all their dunks. Anthony Davis is huge to have in the lineup.
With Davis, LeBron, Durnant, and Andre Drummond starting. the rim is going to be protected. Long range shooting will be the only way team LeBron has issues in this one.
Team Steph is going to have to get it done from deep. Curry’s starting five is Steph Curry, James Harden, DeMar DeRozen, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid.
Curry’s starters are long athletic, and can shoot it from three. No matter the size of their five, the team will give team LeBron a run for their money.
Team Steph’s reserves are also some of the most talented in the NBA. Jimmy Butler, Draymond Green, Al Hortford, Damian Lillard, Kyle Lowry, Klay Thompson and Karl Anthony-Towns round out the rest of team Steph. Look for the talented group to fill it up from the outside.
Team Steph is going to need a to do a good job at defending the paint, and since this is an All Star game, expect not defense to be played on the interior.
Look for Steph Curry to fill it up from deep. Karl Anthony Towns will give the team some protection around the rim with his shot blocking ability.
