All-Star line-ups announced

Team LeBron and Team Stephen are set for battle.

Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

The NBA All-Star Weekend heats up as the teams were announced. There has not been a pecking order release, but it may be safe to bet that LeBron James chose Kevin Durant before Curry could get in on it.

Here’s what you need to know:

Team LeBron

Team Stephen

Interesting opponents:

  • Golden State Warriors Curry, Thompson, and Green vs. Durant
  • Boston Celtics Irving vs. Horford

Coincidence?

  • Both Pelicans on Team LeBron
  • Both Cavaliers on Team LeBron
  • Both Timberwolves on Team Stephen
  • Both Raptors on Team Stephen
  • Both Wizards on Team LeBron

Should be interesting

  • Westbrook and Durant Team LeBron
  • LeBron and Irving on Team LeBron

My Prediction as best match-up:

  • Porzingis (Team LeBron) vs. Towns (Team Stephen)
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (Team LeBron) vs. Horford (Team Stephen)

Best match-up that got missed:

  • Anthony Davis vs. DeMarcus Cousins (aka The Brow vs. Boogie)

What do you think? Do you have a favorite match-up? Any grouping you’re looking forward to seeing? What would be your ideal 5-on-5 during the game?
