Predicting The 2021 NBA All Star Starters

by | Jan 29, 2021 | NBA | 0 comments

Every year, the NBA allows the fans to vote for the starters in the All Star Game. Every year, the fans will vote for someone who is a fan favorite (Tacko Fall, Alex Caruso) and forget the people who truly deserve it. Yesterday the All Star voting began even though there may not even be an All Star Game. In this article, I am going to predict who will be the All Star starters, but I will also say who I think should be the starters. (All stats listed are from Basketball Reference)
