The Eastern Conference couldn’t be more right. These 5 guys HAVE to be the starters in the East. Kyle Lowry and John Wall are well deserving, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony will always be the 2 starting forwards in the East and Pau Gasol starting as the third forward works out as well. They’ve all been playing well all season with the exception of Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James missing extended periods of time. Anthony needed to get the start though because the All-Star Game is in New York and there’s no way he won’t get the start.
Western Conference looks just about right as well. It was recently discovered that Kobe Bryant will be out for some time due to a torn rotator cuff so the start out West will most likely go to James Harden from the Houston Rockets. Curry, Griffin, Davis and Gasol are all well deserving also having very solid seasons. Curry also eclipsed LeBron James and was named the top vote getter overall. Great accomplishment for the young star.
Seems like the fans got it right this time and first time ever a pair of brothers will be starting the All-Star game and they also will be doing the tip-off against each other. Exciting stuff!
