The starters for 2020 NBA All-Star Game are announced. Let the debate for reserve spots begin!
First, let’s take a look at the captains and the 10 players who were voted to start the game.
Now let us take a look at each conference and how the rest of All-Star roster might come out.
There is huge competition for the frontcourt spots and many of them deserve a spot, therefore, there is a possibility of 5 frontcourt spots.
This leaves only 2 spots for the guards for which 4 guys are competing namely Ben Simmons, Bradley Beal, Kyle Lowry and Derrick Rose. Any of these 4 will wind up as the biggest snubs from the east.
Guards – Kyle Lowry (TOR), Derrick Rose(DET)
Frontcourt – Bam Adebayo(MIA)
G Bradley Beal, Wizards
G Ben Simmons,76ers
F Jimmy Butler, Heat
F Khris Middleton, Bucks
F Domantas Sabonis, Pacers
F Jayson Tatum, Celtics
F Andre Drummond, Pistons
The West has plenty of stars and All-Stars snubs. The absence of Splash Brothers has given way for many new players to take the stage.
Will Brandon Ingram awarded a spot for his breakout season?
Does Devin Booker finally make his first All-Star appearance despite putting up numbers every year?
Will Karl Anthony Towns and Paul George make All-Star team even after missing half the season?
There are a lot of compelling storylines on the Western Conference and plenty of potential for outrageous and unthinkable snubs.
Guards – Devin Booker(PHO), Donovan Mitchell(UTA)
Frontcourt – Karl Anthony Town(MIN), LaMarcus Aldridge(SAS)
G Damian Lillard, Trail Blazers
