Picking my All-Star rosters
Breaking down the NBA's best players at the midway point of the season
- Getty ImagesPaul George, LeBron James and Kevin Durant are easy picks for All-Star squads.
The NBA All-Star starters will be announced Thursday on TNT, and as we all know, the fan vote (which determines the starters) is merely a popularity contest. After all, Kobe Bryant, who because of injury has played in just six games this season, will likely be voted a starter in the Western Conference.
Injuries are actually going to help the process out West because, were it not for the fact that Kobe and Russell Westbrook are injured, you would have a couple of All-Star-worthy guards left off the roster. Meanwhile in the East -- which is quite possibly the worst conference we've ever seen from the No. 3 team through No. 15 -- you're scouring for legitimate All-Stars.
Well, today I'm going to humbly submit my All-Star rosters. I will have at least one big man in each starting lineup, and no players who've missed the bulk of the season with injuries (sorry, Kobe and Russell) will make the squad.
Here we go.
