Western Conference All-Stars: Starters

 

LeBron James (Captain)

Not much to say here, he will be making his 17th All-`Star Appearance. He has been averaging 25.8 PPG, 8.2 REB, and 8.1 AST. He has four league MVPs and three All-Star MVP. Plus, he might win another MVP in his age 36 season. 

Stephen Curry

The seven-time All-Star, two-time Kia NBA MVP, and the three-time champion has been averaging 30.2 PPG. It is good to see him healthy after an injury-plagued season. Without Klay Thompson, the Golden State Warriors have been relying on Curry to do much of the scoring as the team is hanging on to the 8th seed.

Luka Doncic

He is going to be a two-time All-Star, was a member of the 2020 All-NBA First Team, and won the  2019 Kia Rookie of the Year Award. He is averaging  28.9 PPG, 8.6 REB, and 9.2 AST, and beat out Damian Lillard for the starting position due to his strong fanbase. The Mavericks need him to continue his dominance because they are currently just outside of a playoff spot.

Nikola Jokic

Another player nearly averaging a triple-double, the soon-to-be three-time All-Star made a 2020 All-NBA Second Team selection. He is averaging 27.0 PPG, 10.9 REB, and 8.4  AST. Due to the recent injuries, the Denver Nuggets have been dealing with, his usage rate has gone up quite a bit.

Kawhi Leonard

The five-time All-Star and two-time Finals MVP  has a 2020 All-Star MVP under his belt. He is averaging 27.1 PPG and makes everything look so easy on both ends of the floor 

Western Conference All-Stars: Reserves

 

Anthony Davis

This will his 8th All-Star selection and a member of the 2020 All-NBA First Team He was a key reason why the Los Angeles Lakers won the title in 2020. He is averaging 22.4 PPG and 8.4 REB. However, Davis will most likely not play due to a calf strain. Maybe Devin Booker or Mike Conley replaces Davis, we shall see.

Paul George

The seven-time AllStar is returning the favor for the Los Angeles Clippers for giving him that lucrative extension worth 190 million dollars over 5 years. He is averaging 24.6 points per game on nearly 52 percent shooting from the field, 48.6 percent shooting from the three-point range, and 87.8 percent shooting from the foul line. He is also averaging a career-high in assists at 5.4.

Rudy Gobert

The two-time defensive player of the year is making his second All-Star selection. He is making a strong case that he is Utah Jazz’s most valuable player. He is an average career-high in blocks- 2.8 per game. 

Damian Lillard

The six-time All-star is putting up another stellar season in hopes of keeping the team on the right track. Teammates C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic have missed extended time due to injury. Lillard has been averaging 29.6PPG.

Donovan Mitchell

The two-time All-Star is averaging 24.5 PPG and 5.2 AST. Both are career-highs for him as he is the most valuable player of the Utah Jazz’s half-court offense. 

Chris Paul

He will be making his 11th All-Star appearance. He won the All-Star MVP back in 2013. Due to his leadership, the Phoenix Suns are 9-1 in their last 10 games.

Zion Williamson

This will be his first All-Star selection. He’s averaging 25.1 PPG on slightly over 60 percent from the field. He has certainly transitioned well to the NBA. 

COACH: 

 

Quin Synder

He is coaching two familiar faces this year in the All-Star game. The Jazz much like the 76ers are currently holding the best record (25-6), and home record (14-2) in the Eastern Conference.
