Predictions for Complete Western and Eastern Conference NBA All-Star Rosters

January 19th, 2013 by Jonathan Wasserman Leave a reply »
The NBA starters for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game have been announced, so let's predict who the coaches will choose as reserves.

Coaches will select two guards, three frontcourt players and two utility guys for their bench. Of course, there will be snubs, but unless they change the roster max to 20, someone's going to get screwed.

 

East Starters

PG: Rajon Rondo

SG: Dwyane Wade

SF: LeBron James

PF: Carmelo Anthony

C: Kevin Garnett

 

Backcourt Reserves

Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia 76ers

19.4 points per game, 9.0 assists per game, 4.2 rebounds per game



Jrue Holiday has made the leap from young guard with potential to experienced leader who can't be contained. His game-tying bucket in the closing seconds against Toronto Friday night, along with the 33 points and 14 assists, should have solidified his status as an NBA All-Star.

With Andrew Bynum out, Holiday has kept his team's head above water, handling playmaking and scoring duties on a routine basis.
